Treatment for All Ages
At Effective Chiropractic PG County, we provide care for patients of all ages, including children and moms-to-be. Our treatment plans are designed specifically for each individual patient, ensuring each person receives personalized care. Many women experience aches and pains in the lower back and hips during pregnancy due to the change in posture. We can help to relieve your pain with a spinal or pelvic adjustment, ensuring a more comfortable pregnancy. We also provide care for children and teens, as we fully understand that they are just as susceptible to aches and pains as adults. We can treat children with spinal misalignments, traumatic injuries, and chronic pain caused by conditions like juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Help Pregnant Women
Visiting a chiropractor for regular adjustments during pregnancy can help make your entire pregnancy more comfortable by reducing aches and pains. These adjustments can also help to make the labor process easier, as they can help to reduce the length of time necessary for delivery. In addition, chiropractic care may help you avoid cesarean delivery and eliminate the need for bed rest due to pressure on the joints. If you are looking for ways to help you achieve a safer, smoother, and natural delivery, chiropractic care is the answer.
Chiropractic Care Can Help Common Pregnancy Conditions
During pregnancy, your body undergoes changes rapidly. As the baby grows, your body changes along with it. You’re now carrying extra weight at the front of your body, which can cause your center of gravity and posture to shift in response to this. Unfortunately, this shift can result in aches, pains, and discomfort because your body isn’t used to it. Chiropractic care can help you deal with these common problems, including:
- Misaligned joints or spine caused by changes in posture
- Pelvic discomfort as your body prepares for labor
- Misaligned pelvis tissues that could restrict your baby’s movements or lead to a breeched birth
- Chronic or acute back, hip, neck, or shoulder pains
- Symptoms of morning sickness or nausea
Should You Get Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
While it’s not a requirement to undergo chiropractic treatments during pregnancy, we highly encourage it to help you feel better. Changes to your body during pregnancy can result in a misaligned spine or joints, which can cause discomfort and make the laboring process more difficult. Not to mention these problems can persist after delivery, resulting in long-term discomfort. Regular chiropractic adjustments during your pregnancy will keep the spine and joints in line as the baby grows and your body changes.
