Did you know that when you are pregnant you experience altered biomechanics? This can mean being misaligned. Misalignments cause additional pain in areas like the low back, hips, buttocks, and calves. In fact, the scientific literature has shown that chiropractic evaluation and treatment during pregnancy is considered not only safe but very effective.
Chiropractic also facilitates an uncomplicated labor and delivery by proving a more comfortable pregnancy. One chiropractic and medical collaborative study even showed that 75% of pregnant patients under chiropractic care found relief from pain. Another study reported that women can have on average between 25% to 31% shorted labor times then those that do not seek chiropractic care. It just makes sense to continue your routine adjustments during and after your term!
