Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when you're carrying a child.
However, the reality is that this doesn't have to be the case. The staff at Oak Park Health Clinic has helped many women in Chicago, IL experience a healthy and happy pregnancy.
Chiropractic care may often help make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating misalignments caused by the growing fetus, thus creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
There are other advantages of engaging in chiropractic during pregnancy as well. By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain may better be able to communicate with the rest of your body, which may mean more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, less nausea, and more.
Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy may be both effective and safe, which means that expecting mothers may enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically as well as mentally.
