Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Chicago
Chicago chiropractor Dr. Peter Georgiou knows that pregnancy is an exciting time--but it can also a bit stressful, too. As a mom, you want your body to be as healthy as possible, so your baby's health will be optimal, too. Relieve stress, revitalize your body, and prepare yourself for labor and post-partum with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Care For New and & Expecting Moms
Chiropractic care is a drug-free and non-invasive way to minimize or eliminate common pregnancy related pains. The forward position of a growing baby can put a lot of strain and tension on connective tissues in and around the mother's spine, which can lead to low back pain, pelvic pain, stiffness, leg numbness (from compression of sciatic nerves) and other symptoms. Our Chicago chiropractor provides relief through:
- Spinal adjustments
- Spinal decompression
- And other techniques
These techniques are completely drug-free and require no stressful or invasive procedures.
Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Receiving chiropractic care throughout a pregnancy can help decrease labor time and prevent breech pregnancies. Research shows that specific adjustments, including the well-known Webster technique, to the spine and pelvic region, can help optimize the growing baby's position in the uterus, which can allow for an easier delivery (though we can only imagine that nothing is easy about giving birth!).
During a woman's pregnancy, her body naturally releases hormones that will help loosen ligaments and joints in her pelvic region to assist with the birthing process. After the baby is born, these joints and ligaments may still be loose, leading to instability and dysfunction during the post-partum period. In addition to providing adjustments and other pain-relieving strategies, our chiropractor can also prescribe corrective exercises and lifestyle guidance to maximize the stability and normal mobility of a woman's post-pregnancy body.
