Patients who visit our AlignLife practice in Beech Grove can look forward to pain relief achieved through natural therapies that avoid surgery and medication.
What Is Prenatal Chiropractic?
The term prenatal chiropractic includes a variety of services performed by our chiropractor to correct or maintain the health of a pregnant patient’s spinal column, spinal discs, related nerves, and bone geometry using only natural therapies. By adjusting misaligned joints, particularly those in the spine, practitioners seek to reduce stress on spinal nerves and foster health throughout the body. They also seek to establish pelvic balance and alignment during a patient’s pregnancy.
Chiropractors trained to work with pregnant patients will provide them with exercises and stretches deemed safe during their pregnancies. Some use tables that adjust to fit the patient’s body as pregnancy advances and also utilize techniques that avoid any unnecessary stress on the abdomen.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Our chiropractor considers educating pregnant patients on what is going on with their bodies and helping them communicate better with their obstetrical team important parts of chiropractic care. Prenatal chiropractic treatment is particularly helpful for correcting these pregnancy-rated musculoskeletal conditions:
- Lower back pain
- Sacroiliac pain
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Pubic symphysis pain
- Round ligament pain
Each person’s spine includes 24 independent vertebrae that make it possible for the body to bend, twist, and move. These vertebrae also protect the central nervous system.
When two or more vertebrae are restricted, the resulting spinal joint dysfunctions can interfere with the body’s ability to communicate with itself. Changes to the body during pregnancy make a patient more prone to joint dysfunction. During prenatal treatment, our doctor locates and corrects these dysfunctions with chiropractic adjustments.
