Chiropractic adjustments are safe and gentle
Chiropractic can help with problems like:
- Heart burn
- Morning sickness
- Low back pain
- Breech babies
- Swollen ankles & feet
Chiropractic care has been shown to decrease labor time, reduce the need for pain medications, and help reduce the incidence of post partum depression in new mothers
Chiropractic care can be helpful in the correction of mal-presentations
A trained chiropractor will look for a variety of indicators:
Misalignment of the lumbar (low back) vertebrae
Misalignment of the pelvic bones
Spasm of the ligaments that help hold the pelvis together.
Spasm of the ligaments that support the uterus.
If a chiropractor finds any of these conditions, he will work to eliminate them by using gentle, low force and specific chiropractic adjustments. When these conditions are corrected, the pelvis, the uterus and the various ligaments involved will resume their normal positions and functions and allow the baby to turn ALL BY ITSELF into the head down (vertex) position.
