Need more information on chiropractic care during pregnancy?

During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.  Regular chiropractic care can provide a more comfortable delivery and enhance your body’s ability to meet the elevated demands that occur throughout pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can reduce discomfort from the many changes going on in the body, reduce neck and back pain, and improve the alignment of the spine and pelvis to allow for optimal positioning during birth.

PRENATAL MASSAGE

Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension. Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Although most massage training institutions teach massage therapy for women who are pregnant, it may be beneficial to find a massage therapist who has specific training in prenatal massage.
