Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment from Your Chiropractor in Sarasota, FL
Although a joyful event, an advancing pregnancy can cause back or pelvic pain, or a combination of both, in three of every four pregnant women. Our chiropractor is able to help many of these women become more comfortable by offering prenatal chiropractic treatment. Pregnant patients who visit our Lakeshore Chiropractic practice in Sarasota, FL, can experience relief from discomfort thanks to our natural therapies that avoid the use of medication or surgery.
Understanding Prenatal Chiropractic
Prenatal chiropractic is an umbrella term that covers a number of therapies our chiropractor provides. The goal of prenatal chiropractic care is correcting or maintaining the wellness of a pregnant patient’s spinal column, discs, nerves, and bone geometry by using solely natural treatments. Repositioning joint misalignments in the spine reduces stress on spinal nerves and boosts overall wellness. Patients enjoy pelvic alignment and balance throughout their pregnancies as a result of these treatments.
Our doctor notes that all prescribed exercises and stretches have been deemed safe for pregnant women. Practitioners avoid techniques that place unhelpful stress on the abdomen. Some utilize special tables that adjust to fit an advancing pregnancy.
Benefits from Our Chiropractic Treatment
Problems with spinal vertebrae cause discomfort for many pregnant women. The spine has 24 vertebrae that protect each person’s central nervous system. Humans are able to twist, bend, and execute other moves while still having the support their bodies need thanks to our vertebrae.
Spinal subluxations can develop when at least two vertebrae become restricted. These block the ability of the body to communicate effectively among its parts. Changes that occur as a pregnancy advances raise the risk of developing subluxations. Prenatal chiropractic therapy includes finding subluxations and correcting them using chiropractic adjustments, which are manual treatments.
Prenatal services are especially useful for these issues:
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Sacroiliac pain
- Pubic symphysis pain
- Lower back pain
Another important aspect of this therapy is education to help patients better understand the changes pregnancy brings.
