Address Morning Sickness, Acid Reflux and Other Pregnancy Symptoms with Chiropractic Care
Unfortunately with all the chemical, emotional and physical changes that are happening in a pregnant woman, there can be some pregnancy complaints that are simply, not so fun. Most of the symptoms that we, as women, experience during pregnancy (such as morning sickness and acid reflux) are because of our bodies being unable to handle the different stressors that we are encountering. In turn, our control system, the nervous system becomes overwhelmed and expresses body signals. Emotional and chemical changes can stress or nervous system and especially physical changes. As the baby grows, we are changing how we are sitting, standing, walking and sleeping it puts increased stress on our spine and nervous systems.
A big thing that the chiropractors at Align evaluate is how your body is compensating. Through chiropractic adjustments, we can help identify where these compensations are happening so that we can reduce the stress on the nervous system and body overall. Posture also becomes altered quite a bit in pregnancy, so we find it important to educate you on proper posture and alignment. Throughout the entire pregnancy, chiropractic adjustments are safe and can be effective for reducing the symptoms that you may encounter, including morning sickness, acid reflux and digestive issues.
As a bonus to treating these symptoms, a study performed by the ICPA indicates that first-time mothers receiving chiropractic care deliver on average 22% faster than those without adjustments, and deliver 37% faster on subsequent births.
