Being pregnant can take a toll on the body, in more ways than one. Apart from gaining weight, the joints and muscles are often stretched and stressed to their max, as a woman enters the later stages of pregnancy. Seeking out an experienced prenatal chiropractor can be an all-natural and safe way to manage the aches and pains of pregnancy, throughout all trimesters. According to the most reputable pediatric and pregnancy clinic centers, here are the top three reasons why pregnancy massage should be part of your pregnancy health regime.
1. Pregnancy Back Pain Is Almost Inevitable. As the baby grows and your stomach protrudes, it is common for many women to experience lower back pain. When you throw in lack of sleep and stress, the level of pain and discomfort felt can intensify very quickly. Your posture will shift, throughout the pregnancy, making changing positions or walking difficult. Taking a proactive approach and receiving pregnancy massages to make sure your joints and back are healthy and aligned can be a great way to ensure your pregnancy is as smooth and pain-free as possible.
2. Pregnancy Back Pain Cannot Is Hard to Treat with Medication. Doctors will advise against taking pain medication during pregnancy and often suggest using heat pads or placing pillows under the lower back when in a seated or lying position. Though these options are somewhat successful in reducing back pain, they are not as nearly as effective as pregnancy massage. Visiting one of the best pregnancy and pediatrics chiropractors in the greater Atlanta and Charleston, SC region, even once a trimester can help you curb any back pain you may be experiencing, without putting your baby at risk.
3. Pregnancy Back Pain Does Negatively Affect Your Baby. Whatever you experience is transmitted to your growing baby. When your spine is misaligned, this impacts your nervous system and can cause your body to produce stress hormones that will cross the placenta and be absorbed by your baby. And, with high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol being found to negatively influence infant birth weights, finding natural and preventive ways to decrease their production in your body is vital. Recent studies have shown a link between chiropractic treatments and a reduction in the level of cortisol in the body, thereby providing further evidence that visiting a pregnancy chiropractor is an essential part of your prenatal health routine.
