Chiropractic and Pregnancy
At Smith Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr. Perry Smith and his staff are dedicated to serving the Grand Traverse community. Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy is both effective and safe, which means that expecting mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically, as well as mentally. Smith advises, “Not only can routine chiropractic care help manage pain in your back, hips and joints, it can also establish pelvic balance. That can provide your baby with as much space as possible over the course of your pregnancy.” Approximately half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating misalignments creating by the growing fetus, creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain is better able to communicate with the rest of the body, which means more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, less nausea and more benefits.
