Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor During Your Pregnancy
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves and adjusts to handling carrying a child and the added weight. This can put extra strain on the parent and discomfort. This can cause changes in the nervous system. These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. This can lead to injury, pain and discomfort. Your doctor can adjust your spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and help subside pain or soreness.
