Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Pregnancy Chiropractic in Naperville, IL
Gelband Natural Health & Chiropractic
Prenatal / Pregnancy Chiropractor in Naperville, IL: During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, misalignments can occur, causing disorders that can affect the nerves, muscles or organs.
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of misalignments and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. We can adjust the spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and ease pain or soreness.
