Prenatal & Postnatal Care
How do you make the most exciting and miraculous time of your life even more exciting and miraculous? Go through the 9-month journey as comfortable as possible! Many women find chiropractic care helps with common conditions that accompany pregnancy including, low-back pain, sciatica, mid-back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain. Lots of women are even pleasantly surprised when they notice less morning sickness, decreased heartburn, and improved balance with ongoing chiropractic service. Chiropractic care promotes and allows for a more comfortable pregnancy for mother and baby. Some mothers even report easier and shorter deliveries.
Effects of Hormones
During pregnancy the body produces hormones that relax the ligaments and joints. Many women experience carpal tunnel syndrome, and chiropractic care has been shown to be a very effective treatment for carpal tunnel. Those same hormones don’t fully leave the body for another 8 weeks after pregnancy. When this happens, those ligaments begin to harden and re-tighten, potentially causing pain and stiffness. With that in mind, we do offer postnatal chiropractic care for new moms to help prevent any potential issues and get you back to normal as quick as possible.
Our tables at Community Chiropractic Center in Greer were designed with moms in mind. They allow for gentle & specific adjustments without pressure to the abdominal area.
