Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Elkins, WV
Safe, Gentle Prenatal Therapy
As you prepare to embark on your journey of welcoming a new baby into the world, Collett Family Chiropractic in Elkins, WV would like to be amongst the first to congratulate you! Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a wonderful way to help ensure that you and your baby are as healthy as possible throughout all stages of your pregnancy. In addition, chiropractic care can help you even before you conceive – especially if you are struggling to become pregnant. Prenatal chiropractic care is safe, gentle, and an effective drug-free alternative to keeping you as comfortable as possible when with child.
Prepare For Labor & Baby’s Delivery With Chiropractic Care
During your pregnancy, your body will undergo many changes –chiefly affecting your spine and pelvis. The curvature of the spine tends to increase as your abdomen protrudes. Several postural adaptations will occur as well as changes to the pelvic region. Keeping your body aligned during this time of your life is crucial to your health, happiness, and overall well-being, especially if you are planning a natural delivery. A properly aligned pelvis ensures that the developing baby has adequate room and is able to get into the ideal position for delivery. As you approach your due date, chiropractic care can help ensure your alignment is good so that both your hips and spine will be ready for child birth. Chiropractic treatments throughout pregnancy can help reduce the need for interventions during your labor. When the spine is properly aligned, your nervous system is able to control all body systems optimally, including the reproductive system.
Chiropractor Specializing In Pregnancy & Postnatal Care
After you have delivered your baby, regular chiropractic care can continue help. As your body rapidly undergoes the same changes in reverse that previously took nine months to complete, we can help your body reestablish alignment and pelvic balance. Treatment options are also available for your baby. Traumatic births can stress a baby’s spine, neck, shoulders, and other joints throughout the body. Gentle and delicately applied chiropractic care can help reduce breastfeeding issues, as well as the incidence of colic and ear infections.
