Expectant mothers can develop poor posture and more than 50% of pregnant women experience low back pain due to ligament laxity and a shifted center of gravity.
Why is Chiropractic Care Important During Pregnancy?
According to the American Chiropractic Association, Chiropractic care has been shown to hold a greater benefit for pregnant patients than traditional Obstetric care alone. Chiropractic care can help optimize pregnancy and protect the health of the mother and unborn baby. It also allows for a shorter labor, ideal positioning of the baby in the womb, and less of a chance for invasive practices during the birthing process.
