There are more than 6 million children born in the USA every year, and over 14 percent of those births include some kind of complication. So not only can labor be debilitating, but there are always dangers which might happen. There are lots of approaches to minimize these dangers, such as exercise, good nutrition, supplementation, in addition to chiropractic treatment in our Santa Cruz chiropractic office.
When a woman is pregnant, changes in the body happen instantly. Each of these changes is to encourage the life that’s growing in the mother. Pregnancy, as exquisite of an occasion as it might be, can cause the mother distress or pain. This happens as a result of growth in hormone levels and the increase in size of the placenta. With these two things, the liver is working considerably harder which can cause a great deal of stress for the mother.
There are numerous potential causes of this, such as misalignment(s) inside the throat and upper spine, dehydration, anxiety, along with caffeine and sugar withdrawal. With chiropractic adjustments, appropriate nourishment and a healthy sleep cycle, those headaches could be significantly reduced or removed.
If you currently have misalignments inside your backbone it’s extremely possible that your pregnancy will exacerbate the symptoms resulting in pain, acid reflux, constipation, nausea, or pain. During the pregnancy, the pelvis is pushed forward, altering the lower spine curve. This will naturally occur, but if you have a misalignment in your lower spine or back already, this could cause significant complications and pain.
The actual advantages of chiropractic treatment during pregnancy could be viewed when a woman goes into labor. The average length of labor is 10 1/2 hours. First time moms getting chiropractic treatment may undergo a 24% diminished labor time and moms who’ve already had kids can undergo a 39% drop in the length of labor. Most of all, woman who have been receiving routine chiropractic treatment frequently find that they don’t need medication during delivery, since they’ve prepared their body for labor.
