Chiropractic care during gestation can be beneficial for a smooth pregnancy and delivery. At Lancaster Chiropractic Life Center, we provide prenatal chiropractic care to women in Lancaster to help facilitate a smooth, comfortable, and healthy pregnancy and delivery. Here are the benefits of prenatal chiropractic care:

Help Low Back Pain

The majority of pregnant women suffer low back pain. Studies have shown pregnant women under chiropractic care have reported up to a 75% reduction of pain once under care.

Boosts the Chances of a Natural Birth

Expectant mothers who visit a chiropractor have higher chances of having a natural birth over a C-section. This is because chiropractic care promotes proper spine, nerves, pelvis, and hips alignment for proper contractions and cervix dilation. Therefore, making natural birth more probable.

Controls Nausea

Nausea and morning sickness are frequent during gestation. These gestation symptoms can negatively affect the quality of your life and interfere with your daily routine. Prenatal chiropractic care can help control nausea and morning sickness.

Reduces Labor Time

Chiropractic care when pregnant increases the likelihood that you will have a shorter and less complicated labor and delivery. Chiropractic care during gestation eases tension and pain during labor: thus, allowing for a more comfortable delivery.

Overall Healthier Pregnancy

Another great reason for chiropractic care during pregnancy is that it is drugless. We don’t know the effects of many drugs used during pregnancy because pregnant women are often not included in safety studies. Antibiotics and cold and flu medications have been linked to ill effects to the fetus.

Aid in Optimal Positioning

How the fetus is positioned in your uterus can affect its birth. If the fetus is in a breech position, there are high chances that you will have complicated labor and delivery. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can encourage the baby to move into the most optimal position for delivery.
