At Dyker Heights Family Chiropractor in Brooklyn, we believe in holistic treatment for all family members. As your family grows, we can help you maintain family health and wellness. Chiropractic treatment is an effective form of total body care for people of all ages. During pregnancy, chiropractic treatment can provide significant relief for many prenatal conditions.
Common Prenatal Conditions Treated by Our Chiropractor
Physical changes lead to pain and discomfort that can only be addressed through prenatal chiropractic care. Throughout pregnancy, a woman’s body must adapt to carrying the added weight of the baby. Often, this weight puts too much pressure on the spine, causing it to shift out of alignment. If not addressed by a prenatal chiropractor, spinal misalignment due to pregnancy can result in chronic pain. Here are the conditions our chiropractor addresses through prenatal chiropractic care.
Pelvic and Spinal Misalignment – Women commonly adjust their posture to compensate for the change in their center of gravity as their baby grows larger. This can cause varying degrees of back pain due to the misalignment that the overcompensation causes.
Sciatica – Shifts in the lumbar region of the spine can place pressure on the sciatic nerve. This pain can be dull or sharp and can radiate down the entire leg.
Joint Pain – During pregnancy, cartilage can soften. This can lead to joint pain in different areas of the body; most commonly the pelvic joint. This pain can be debilitating and impair your ability to complete daily tasks.
Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Oftentimes, pregnant women suffering from joint pain, nerve pain, and other musculoskeletal disorders believe that their pain is simply a part of being pregnant. This is not the case. Prenatal chiropractic care is an excellent alternative to conventional pain relief because it is natural and effective. Our prenatal adjustments are gentle and precise. Spinal injuries incurred during pregnancy can progress into chronic pain conditions if not addressed by a skilled prenatal chiropractor.
