Blossoming Together: The Secret to a Comfortable Pregnancy through Chiropractic Care!

Updated: Aug 15, 2023

Pregnancy can be one of the most memorable, eye-opening experience for a woman.


You may be feeling all kinds of conflicting emotions upon realizing that you have a human growing inside you. Take heart, mama. We’re all in this together.


Although you are encouraged to just enjoy this phase as well as taking good care of yourself, it’s not always ‘rainbows and baby unicorns’. Sure, people would compliment you for having that ‘pregnant-mom glow’, but over time, you’re bound to go through some difficult changes, physically and emotionally.



Problems experienced during pregnancy


First, understand that your body has to go through hormonal and structural changes to accommodate the baby’s growth and development.


As the body changes, the curve in the back increases, the abdomen swells, the ligaments relax, and the pelvis changes. These can lead to spinal and pelvic misalignment.



You know the pain you feel at the back and hip that makes it hard for you to fall asleep? And when you’re finally asleep, your full bladder screams for you to wake up and go to the bathroom? And when you’re back in bed, you’re having trouble falling asleep again?


Yes, all that originates from the misalignment.

And, this is only just one scenario, of many.


Here’s a summary of problems you may experience during pregnancy:

· Back pain

· Lack of sleep

· Frequent urination

· Numbness and tingling in the thighs, knees, and feet

· Pelvic pain

· Leg cramps

· Upper back, neck, and shoulder aches


Although it’s in your best interest to find remedies to ease the pain and smoothen the whole pregnancy process, be careful in choosing the right ones.

For example, over-the-counter pain-killer medications that can normally be consumed may pose a risk to you and your baby.


Discuss with your doctor first before taking any medications.

Or, you could consider safer, healthier alternatives such as chiropractic care.
