Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy
Did you know that approximately 50% of all women experience back pain during pregnancy? Changes in a women's body during pregnancy can impact:
curvature of the spine
shifting the center of one's gravity
increase in circulating hormones increasing the mobility of the pelvis and decreasing spinal stabilization
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment during pregnancy and has been shown to decrease labor times by 25% and 31% in 1st and multiparous pregnancies respectively!
