Chiropractic Care Shown to Provide Pregnancy Pain Relief
During pregnancy, the expecting mother’s body undergoes pelvic shifts, postural adjustments, and a growing belly. All place pressure on your spine and joints. The good news is there is ample research showing that chiropractic care is safe and effective during pregnancy.
Dr. Brian Dahmer personally got to experience performing chiropractic care on his pregnant wife while he attended university. “It was an incredible experience,” Dahmer said in one of his Facebook videos. “We went through the bradley method together. Through that experience I was able to help deliver my first baby. I realized how much stress can be on Mom, as well as the baby. I became very passionate about taking care of moms before and after pregnancy.”
Clinical Studies Show Chiropractic Care Offers Back Pain Relief to 84% of Pregnancies
It has been reported that approximately 50% of all pregnant women experience back pain during their pregnancy and 50% to 75% of women experience back pain during labor, according to this meta analysis of 20 years of data.
Every 10lbs of weight in your stomach puts 40lbs of pressure on your back. Seeking chiropractic care during each trimester has been shown to:
- Relieve back pain, neck and joint pain
- Shorten delivery process by up to 31%
- Helps with nausea
- Reduce risk of needing a c-section
- Experience an overall healthier pregnancy
Keeping physical stress to a minimum during pregnancy is crucial. Chiropractors utilize what’s called the Webster Technique to make sure your pelvis stays aligned and your baby has maximum room for development and moving into proper position for delivery.
