Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Going through pregnancy in Phoenix and the surrounding areas of Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, and Glendale can sometimes result in pain, discomfort or general aches. Although pregnant mothers expect a certain level of discomfort, solutions are available to help reduce the pain by working with a chiropractor.

Common Discomforts Throughout Pregnancy

Pregnant mothers face a variety of discomforts before the birth of a child. In some cases, the pain or discomfort fades over time or reduces when moving into a different trimester. In other situations, the discomfort persists until a child is born. 

Common problems that women face before the birth of a child include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Leg cramps
  • Swelling in the feet and legs
  • Back pain, particularly in the third trimester
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Aching joints

Furthermore, women can feel tense in the shoulders, which can contribute to headaches. Seeking help from our Phoenix chiropractor can reduce the discomfort that women feel so that it is possible to enjoy the process of carrying a child.

Our Chiropractic Treatment Options for Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, and Glendale Mothers

Appropriate treatments with a chiropractor depend on the situation and personal goals. Residents in Central Phoenix and the surrounding areas can benefit from treatments during pregnancy by addressing some of the factors that contribute to aches and general discomforts.

Spinal adjustments help with discomforts in the lower back and upper back that occur from the excess weight of carrying an unborn infant as well as the changes to a woman's posture that develop in the later trimesters. A spinal adjustment realigns the discs in the spine and helps ensure that a woman maintains better posture. As a result, the discomfort reduces and women feel more comfortable.

Network spinal analysis at our clinic uses gentle touches and clinical assessment to determine where women hold tension and then address the underlying situation. Since it uses a gentle touch, it is safe for expectant mothers. It helps alleviate tension in the back and neck while also evaluating the situation so that a chiropractor can develop a realistic strategy to alleviate overall discomfort and aches. 

Expectant mothers also benefit from our Somato-Respiratory Intergration treatments because it teaches a woman to understand and manage her body. The changes that occur when a woman carries an unborn child can impact her ability to manage her health and understand her body. The treatment program helps women reconnect with their bodies and regain a healthy focus. It strives to teach women better breathing techniques, focused movement and better attention to the needs of the body, which ultimately helps during the pregnancy.

Seeking chiropractic care while expecting a baby can help alleviate common discomforts and improve health for a lifetime. By using natural solutions and treatments to adjust to the changes that occur, women can maintain their health and improve the health of a baby.
