Chiropractic for Pregnancy in West Haven?

many women use chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy

The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. It's common for women in West Haven to visit a chiropractic office in West Haven regularly for low back pain, as well as other related issues, such as sciatica, leg cramps and constipation. This can lead to difficulty performing daily tasks as well as difficulties in labor.

Chiropractic treatment for pregnancy can be an outstanding source of relief for back pain. Many women also comment that the birthing process was easier after having undergone chiropractic treatments. The following article takes a more in-depth look at the discomfort caused by pregnancy and explains exactly how chiropractic treatment can help.


Prenatal Chiropractic in West Haven

During pregnancy, the body activates a hormone called relaxin. This chemical prepares the body for the birthing process, allowing the pelvic floor to expand in preparation for the baby’s arrival.

However, because this powerful hormone begins to be released around the 16th week of pregnancy, it creates a situation where structural shifts start to occur. These changes are most notably seen in the low back, pelvis and hips, leading to the development of chronic discomfort for moms-to-be.

It’s important for the pelvis to be properly aligned, particularly during the birthing process. Without optimal pelvic balance, the delivery process is often slowed down and impacted, sometimes requiring unwanted intervention.

Through gentle prenatal chiropractic, overall nerve function in the body is maximized, creating a more comfortable pregnancy and an easier, quicker labor for Mom.
