Chiropractic Assists with Childbirth Issues

Velocity Chiropractic, the office of Dr. Mark Sicheneder, offers prenatal chiropractic and post-pregnancy chiropractic. He says, “No matter where you are during your pregnancy, chiropractic care can help ease your discomforts along the way.”

            In pregnancy, hormones begin to fluctuate and weight gain is inevitable. This added stress may create postural issues, causing more strain to be placed on the spine. Chiropractic for pregnancy involves simple adjustments that can ease aches and discomforts such as restless leg syndrome, back pain, sciatica and swollen limbs.

            After giving birth, adequate rest is necessary to recover. During this time, chiropractic care can help heal more quickly by encouraging the body’s natural healing abilities. Many women experience spinal misalignments from labor and giving birth. Velocity Chiropractic provides adjustments to realign the spine’s curvature, promote better healing and restore the nervous system. This can contribute to improved mood, increased energy and the balancing of hormones.
