Pregnancy Chiropractic in Las Cruces

While pregnancy can be a beautiful time in a woman’s life, it can also have some major discomforts and pain along the way. Safe, effective, gentle, and best of all—completely natural, chiropractic helps ease pain and discomfort, which is good for Mom and her baby.

Why Do I Need Chiropractic?

Pregnant woman on tableWhy should a pregnant woman see a chiropractor? The bigger risk is not being checked.

A woman’s body undergoes incredible changes during pregnancy. The spine experiences numerous microtraumas as the body adapts, and the strain on Mom’s joints and muscles, balance issues, and pressure from an enlarged abdomen are substantial.

Chiropractic care keeps Mom’s body aligned as changes occur, and helps the nervous system function at its optimal level. When the spine is adjusted, it helps maintain the health and mobility of the joints, to support the pregnancy and delivery.

While chiropractic care during pregnancy is an important part of prenatal care, many women don’t know about the benefits, both for themselves and their unborn baby. Some benefits from adjustment are relief from headaches, back, chest and neck pain, sciatica, and tight hip muscles.

Making sure the mom-to-be is comfortable and pain-free is good for her and the baby. Better overall health, less swelling, morning sickness, and hormonal swings have also been noted. Many of our moms report easier and quicker labor and delivery too!
