The Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a beautiful time for an expecting mother, however it can bring plenty of pain and discomfort, including morning sickness and backaches. The natural adjustments of the body during pregnancy can add stress to a woman’s spine, but studies show 80 percent of women don’t receive treatment for pregnancy related pains. Many women assume it is a natural part of pregnancy that cannot be avoided, but this is not the case. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be beneficial for both an expecting mother and her baby.

  • Dr. Barry can help pregnant women avoid lower back pain and sciatica pain – inflammation of the nerves that run from the lower back down the legs and feet.
  • Babies in the breech position are at risk for birth complications. New York chiropractors use techniques based around breech babies that show a 82% success rate in repositioning babies from breech to cephalic positions.
  • Undergoing chiropractic care can significantly increase a mother’s quality of sleep. Studies show the amount of sleep a woman receives directly correlates with the amount of time she spends in labor. Pregnant women that receive chiropractic care typically experience 25% less time in labor.
  • Pain during the first pregnancy typically indicates pain in future pregnancies, so addressing it with chiropractic care during pregnancy can have long-lasting benefits.

Pain is an inevitable part of a pregnancy. Taking pain medications to minimize discomfort can be extremely harmful to your developing baby. Try Dr. Barry’s chiropractic care during pregnancy for safe and natural pain relief.
