Chiropractic care can help expecting mothers to have a healthier pregnancy. We have gathered some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive at Goldberg Chiropractic.
What conditions can chiropractic care help with during pregnancy?
Several musculoskeletal conditions that occur during pregnancy can benefit from chiropractic care. Some of these conditions include sciatic nerve pain, sacroiliac pain, pubic symphysis pain, and round ligament pain. A chiropractor can also help manage and treat neck pain, back pain, and extremity pain without the need for painkillers.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe during pregnancy?
Yes! Chiropractors are specially trained to work with pregnant patients to avoid injury to the baby or the mother.
What is pubic symphysis pain?
Pubic symphysis pain, commonly known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), often occurs during the third trimester of pregnancy. The hormone Relaxin causes the symphysis joint to relax and allows the joint to move and separate. This can lead to instability of the pelvis, limited mobility, and pain. To treat SPD, Dr. Goldberg and his team will employ ligament release techniques, block techniques, diaphragmatic release, and work on your soft tissue.
How can chiropractic care help with sciatic nerve pain?
The additional pressure of your baby can irritate your sciatic nerve, which can cause radiating and numbing pain throughout the lower body. Chiropractic adjustments are an all-natural way to reduce that physical stress and tension.
Can visiting a chiropractor help make the birthing process faster?
Yes. According to the American Chiropractic Association, first-time moms who have received regular chiropractic care had a 25 percent shorter labor on average.
Can a prenatal chiropractor help with natural childbirth?
Chiropractic care can help to prepare expectant mothers for natural childbirth. A pregnancy chiropractor can help balance the pelvis, which can help get your baby into the proper position for birth. Our services can also help align your body and reduce pain in your back, legs, and pelvis area during birth.
How can chiropractic care help mothers after childbirth?
Chiropractic care can play an important role in postpartum care. Often, new mothers experience loosened ligaments, pinched nerves, and persistent back pain. They also see a change in their posture and balance. When new moms visit Goldberg Chiropractic, we can help the healing process and restore the body’s biomechanics through a series of spinal adjustments, alignments, exercises, and stretches.
