Prenatal Chiropractic Care at Curzie Chiropractic
If you've just discovered that you're pregnant, you may be experiencing a combination of feelings -- from joy at the prospect of a new family member to concern over prenatal aches and pains. But while the nine months of pregnancy can have their ups and downs, you can enjoy a smoother experience while also optimizing the conditions for your child's birth. Our Anchorage chiropractor at Curzie Chiropractic can help you achieve these goals through our safe, natural prenatal chiropractic adjustments.
Why Pregnant Women Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care
Why do pregnant women experience various forms of discomfort along the road to delivery? The body must undergo several changes to nurture a fetus through all three trimesters, from abdominal expansion and changes in posture to a loosening of the ligaments in the pelvic region. These and other changes can produce:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Tension headaches
- Swelling of the extremities
- General muscular aches
While the weight gain and swayback posture of pregnancy strain your muscles, musculoskeletal changes that compress major nerve roots can interfere with your body's overall wellness. Pain, weakness, numbness, or other symptoms in the extremities are another side effect of pinched nerve tissue. Of course your developing baby can only be as healthy as you are. To complicate things further, lower spinal misalignment from the loosened pelvic ligaments can make it impossible for the fetus to turn around in the womb, possibly resulting in a breech birth.
Safe, Effective Treatment from Our Prenatal Chiropractor
Our prenatal chiropractor, Dr. Curzie, can administer chiropractic adjustments that are safe for both mother and baby. While this form of care employs the same basic principles as other forms of chiropractic adjustment, prenatal adjustments focus primarily on improving your pelvic and lower spinal alignment. Our Anchorage chiropractor also avoids making any moves that would put pressure on the abdominal region or pose any risk to your baby.
Prenatal chiropractic care can make all the difference in how you experience your pregnancy. By relieving nerve pressure, joint subluxation and muscle strain, we can keep your entire body functioning at peak efficiency, with minimal discomfort. This is good news for you and your baby -- especially if it means you can have a normal, relatively easy childbirth. We can even provide additional support such as nutritional counseling to help you maintain optimal prenatal health.
