Pregnancy & Fertility

Here to help you experience the joys of pregnancy & birth

There are a variety of home remedies for getting pregnant: cutting out alcohol; having men switch from briefs to boxers; losing weight; reducing stress; and loading up on the right kinds of vitamins. But one natural boost to fertility often overlooked is a visit to your chiropractor.

For obvious reasons chiropractors are normally associated with treating musculoskeletal issues such as whiplash, lower back pain, and muscle spasms. But chiropractic treatments have a range of health benefits. According to the AmericanPregnancy.org, chiropractic care is a safe and natural method to improve body function, especially the nervous system.

In some cases, the crux of a woman’s fertility issues may be their body not running at a 100 percent. Stress, a poor diet, lack of exercise, excess weight, and other lifestyle choices can undermine attempts to conceive. Even fatigue can be a factor. Getting regular treatments from a chiropractor can not only realign your body, it can help improve circulation, having a calming effect, boost your nervous system, and provide increased overall wellness, which in turn can facilitate getting pregnant.

    The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care During pregnancy

    It may be a beautiful and wondrous thing, but pregnancy really does a number on the mother’s body

    That should come as no surprise. After all, she’s building and housing another human being for 40 weeks; that’s bound to take a toll. What’s more, the extra weight she carries – both the size of the fetus and the weight of the placenta and amniotic fluid – often causes a substantial amount of pain and discomfort.

    Dealing with this discomfort can be especially difficult during pregnancy, as the mother is limited in ways she can manage pain without damaging the fetus. Chiropractic care offers a safe alternative to treat pain and discomfort before, during, and after pregnancy.

    The various changes that occur in a pregnant woman’s body, such as to the pelvis, abdomen, and back, commonly cause a misaligned spine and joint problems. Chiropractic care helps balance the pelvis and align the spine, helping both mother and baby.

    Yes, the baby as well. This is because a misaligned pelvis negatively affects room for the developing fetus, a condition referred to as intrauterine constraint. This may also affect optimum positioning when it comes time to deliver the baby and can even cause breech placement.

    Proper spinal alignment also ensures a healthy nervous system and correct communication along the neural pathways. Chiropractic care specifically addresses spinal misalignment and the patient’s nervous system. Reducing stress to these functions relieves pain and discomfort, benefitting the mother’s health and the baby’s wellbeing.

    These treatments are natural and drug-free, making them safe as well as effective. And, after the baby is born, chiropractic care helps return the mother’s body to its pre-pregnancy state.
