How Can A Chiropractor Help With Pregnancy

Chiropractic is one of the most natural and healthy things a mother can do for her baby. In order for the baby to develop at it’s best it is important to create an environment within the uterus that is just right. The uterus and all the mother’s hormonal levels are controlled and regulated by the mother’s nervous system (the brain, spinal cord, and nerves). It is the nervous system that is responsible for maintaining and regulating all of the body’s functions.

During pregnancy there are many changes in the body; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is because of these changes that it is even more important to see a chiropractor. When these changes are happening there will be added stress placed on the spine and nervous system. The bones of the spine may become pulled out of alignment and put pressure on the nerves exiting the spine. If the nerves can not relay the proper messages to the uterus, the environment in which the baby is growing and developing will not be optimal.
