And today we’re going to talk about chiropractic the five benefits of a chiropractic adjustment. For your pregnancy benefit.
Improves Joint Pain
Number one, it improves joint pain. When you’re pregnant, your body releases, hormones that are designed to help your ligaments to relax and that relaxing of the ligaments allows your body to expand, allows you to be able to, carry the baby. As baby is growing makes everything really movable, which is great.
The problem is as everything becomes more moveable. The spine and the pelvis are a whole lot less stable things, move out of position. And then we have a lot more pain chiropractic care during this time is going to help improve the positioning of the spine and relieving pressure off of those nerves so that we feel better. we mention this more in another post about pregnancy health

Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments have been able to show a significant decrease in the amount of time that it takes to deliver baby.
Now there’s no such thing as an easy delivery or an easy pregnancy, but if you want to delivery as easy as possible, which certainly can happen when the pelvis and that lower spine are more balanced, everything moves a lot easier when it’s balanced. That is what you want to do. If you want an easier delivery. Also if you’re struggling with baby in the wrong position, check out this post that explains the 11 ways to turn breech baby.
Decreases Sciatic Pain
Pregnancy or an easier delivery chiropractic care can help with sciatic pain, depending on the positioning of the pelvis, baby can be sitting on the sciatic nerve. And if the baby is sitting on your psychotic nerve, that creates a lot of pain in the back, that travels down the leg it can be incredibly painful.
And the only way that we’re going to be able to take care of that is to make sure that everything is as balanced as possible. So that baby can be sitting in a more neutral position. That should put less pressure on that psychotic nerve chiropractic care is very effective in helping sciatic pain during your pregnancy.
Next, we’re going to talk about headaches. Typically pregnancy headaches are generally hormonally caused and where. Chiropractic care doesn’t necessarily change how things are functioning, hormonally, the nerves that come out of the upper part of the neck that they travel right up into the head. And when things are out of position, you’re going to affect those nerves that travel up into the head.
And so even though the hormones can affect our headaches, if the if, our hormones aren’t balanced right. And we have that pressure in the neck. You’re definitely going to have a headache. We’re going to remove the pressure off of those nerves in that upper part of the neck, relieving that pressure.
Improving your headache. Next chiropractic care helps to reduce stress. When the nerves in the spine are more balanced, we have no pressure on them. The body’s stress response normalizes, and in reducing stress, it can affect just about every function in the body. So use chiropractic care to help you to reduce stress.
So there you have it. Those are the ways that chiropractic can help you and your pregnancy.
