Balancing the nervous system with chiropractic and craniosacral care can help with the aches and pains of pregnancy, birth trauma, childhood injuries and improve overall health.
Children whose nervous systems are free from interference have a better ability to fight off infections and heal. Their bodies can also adapt to and recover from stressors (whether they be physical traumas or food and chemical allergens) more easily. In effect, they are healthier overall because their bodies are able to adapt to the world around them more easily.
Pregnancy and birth are a time of great physical, emotional and life change. Sometimes, these increased stresses can cause discomfort and pain for the mother to be. While low back pain, headaches, sciatica and carpal tunnel may be common to many pregnant women, they are not a normal and many things can be done to make women more comfortable. Balancing the pelvis with chiropractic care can not only decrease pain and discomfort for mom, but also creates the greatest possible space for the baby to grow in and exit through at birth. Reducing the amount of restriction in the pelvis and uterus (also called intrauterine constraint) allows the baby to get into the best position for birth.
I believe that pregnancy and birth is a transformative time in women’s lives and I am thankful to be able to assist women during this time of great change.
