With your pregnancy come hormonal changes, a shift in body weight and a laxity of connective tissues. New stresses are experienced by the lower back and pelvis. Many women report that their pregnancies were easier and their delivery times shorter when they received chiropractic care. Even today’s birthing procedures can put tremendous pressures on a child’s spine and neck. And while the injury from forceps deliveries may be less common today, vacuum extraction and eager hands can do even more damage by pulling, forcing and twisting the baby’s young spine. The health of your pregnancy and your baby’s health are connected in a special way. Make sure your nervous system is subluxation -free during this time of rapid growth. Coming in for regular adjustments during your pregnancy is important.
Dr. Becerra will use special techniques and adjustments, just for pregnant women so there’s no need to be fearful during your pregnancy, that you can’t get adjusted.
