As dedicated Chiropractors in Gastonia, NC, we’re very passionate about chiropractic health during pregnancy. Although it’s not in every pregnancy plan, it is actually very important for pregnant women to maintain proper back health. According to the American Pregnancy Association,

“During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby…The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.”

That’s why, in addition to all the care you need when you’re pregnant, you should also be investing in chiropractic care. Chiropractors in Gastonia, NC can make sure you have the right alignment and make pregnancy that much easier. Still not convinced? Here are 3 reasons to get chiropractic help with your pregnancy.

1. Keep Your Spine Alignment Up

It’s important to get safe, effective adjustments to help combat spinal misalignment or dysfunction during pregnancy. Keeping everything well aligned is essential to making birth a much easier process.

2. Get  Much-Needed Pain-Relief

Headaches an back pain is a common symptom during the first trimester. As the baby grows, and you carry more weight, that puts more strain on your spine. That’s why it’s very important to get the help you need. According to a study conducted by the Department of Chiropractic Medicine at the University of Zurich,

“52% of 115 recruited patients ‘improved’ at 1 week, 70% at 1 month, 85% at 3 months, 90% at 6 months and 88% at 1 year…”

At Thomas Chiropractic Center, we take pride in keeping up to date all the latest developments and advances in chiropractic care. That means we can help you with back pain throughout your pregnancy, no matter the problems.

3. Make Labor So Much Easier

In fact, chiropractic help can lessen your labor time. As Cara L. Borggren of Northwestern Health Sciences University reports in her review,

“A retrospective review of statistics reported that primigravida women who seek chiropractic care throughout gestation have, on average, a 25% shorter labor time whereas multiparous women who seek chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy have, on average, 31% shorter labor times”

A shorter labor time means less pain and less strain on your body. Either way, back health can help the whole process go a lot smoother because your spine will be aligned in the right way.
