Pregnancy is a unique time in a mother’s life. A mother aims for a happy, healthy pregnancy for both herself and her baby. Sometimes, the rapid flux of mom’s body can cause some inconvenient growing pains.

Dr. Fast offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When the body goes through the various stages of pregnancy and labor, the spine experiences an inordinate amount of stress. The body has to constantly adjust to the changing weight over the course of nine months. The center of gravity is moved forward and Too much weight gain adds tension to the backbone ahead of delivery. This tension frequently causes back discomfort, headaches, insomnia, or other symptoms that can impair quality of life.

More than 3 in 4 of pregnant women complain about lower back pain during their pregnancy. This discomfort is primarily caused by an overburdened spine and support system. In light of this, the feasibility of a good delivery comes down to the state of your body. Stress, misalignment, and exhaustion can affect delivery and lead to injury.

A study performed by the American Chiropractic Association Board of Trustees found that women who are cared for by chiropractors during their third trimester of pregnancy tend to carry and deliver more comfortably. The need for painkillers was also significantly reduced.
