Chiropractic is so important for a healthy pregnancy and easier birthing process. Why?
The pelvis consists of your hips (ilium) and sacrum (what people often call their tailbone). The uterus and hence baby are positioned over these structures. The uterus is suspended by a series of ligaments that attach to the pelvis. When they are out of alignment or proper position, they will create tension and distortion of the uterus. This in turn puts strain on the baby inside the mother. It is more difficult for the then distorted baby to then pass through a distorted pelvis. This increases the likelihood of a longer labor, more difficult delivery, and c-section.
The sacroiliac joint is particularly prone to instability in pregnancy because the ligaments of the body become looser to allow the baby to pass through the pelvis. Because of this, the sacroiliac joint can become out of alignment, which creates the scenario described above.
I use Sacro-Occipital Technique ® (SOT ®), which is a gentle way to help stabilize the sacroiliac joint. It is also helpful for things like sciatica, which can happen during pregnancy.
Why not give you and your baby the best potential for a healthy and uneventful pregnancy and childbirth? Call the office 727-509-3760 or book online by clicking the link above.
I'm a Chiropractic Physician, Psychotherapist and researcher. I'm interested in helping people live their lives to their full potential. That could be simply without pain. Or it could be without more complicated physical or mental health problems. Or it could be getting help in making changes in their life so that they can achieve their dreams.
