Your pregnancy is one of the most special times of your life. Unfortunately, pregnant women often suffer from many aches and pains during pregnancy. Finding healthy, safe ways to deal with these issues is crucial to the health of you and your baby. Dr. Lacie Guy at Valdosta Chiropractic and Rehab, serving Valdosta, GA is here to help. Keep reading to learn more about how prenatal chiropractic care can help you.
Why Do I Need a Pregnancy Chiropractor?
During your pregnancy, you will be very limited in how you can deal with pain issues. This is difficult because pregnancy itself creates many new pain issues. There are many pain medications that are simply not a healthy option for most women. A chiropractor will be able to provide you with safe, drug-free pain relief options during this special time.
In addition to finding healthy ways to deal with pain, our family chiropractor will also be able to help your body prepare for the huge job of giving birth.
What to Expect
When you first visit our chiropractor, your overall health and wellness will be evaluated. If you are having any pain issues, those will be given special attention. After this, the doctor will develop a treatment plan just for you. This treatment plan will include treatments and exercises which are safe for a pregnant woman. Our office even provides specially designed equipment for pregnant women.
The most common type of treatment used in our office is spinal adjustments. As your baby grows and develops, your body will change dramatically. One of the changes you will feel is in your back. The growing baby can move your spine out of proper alignment. This will cause strain and stress on the muscles and vertebra of the back. This is one of the reasons pregnant women often complain of back pain. Regular spinal adjustments can help to relieve much of this pain and to increase your overall mobility during this time.
Massage therapy is also a great treatment for pregnant moms. Massage therapy will help to relax tightened muscles and relieve stress.
In addition to these types of therapy, our chiropractor can also provide stretches and exercises which will help prepare the body for labor.
