Pregnancy can be tough on a woman’s body, especially towards the end. The baby’s position can contribute to the pain when they lay a certain way. While there are a few safe medications to take during pregnancy, for pain relief, a woman is always looking for a more natural way to relieve the stress from the baby. Even so, that pain medication is only a band-aid, and not a remedy. Here’s why a chiropractor can help relieve pain, improve posture, and make the pregnancy more bearable.
Is it safe to see a chiropractor?
Chiropractic methods are safe to do throughout the pregnancy. To see a chiropractor during your pregnancy, speak with your primary care physician and get a referral prior to making an appointment. Before anything else, however, if you are experiencing any of the following, seek medical attention as soon as possible, and do not see your chiropractor:
- Vaginal bleeding
- Moderate to severe toxemia
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Placenta abruption or placenta previa
