How about we take a minute to marvel at the female human body? The ability to create life and deliver that baby into the world is a truly magnificent beautiful thing. You'll never see more strength in a human being than the pregnant and laboring woman. I'll never forget the day my daughter was born and the sheer awesomeness of my wife!
Unfortunately... and if you've had kids in the past and are reading this, get ready to nod your head in agreement... sometimes that comes with stiffness, pain, tingling, and/or numbness throughout the process. A very common question I get asked is "Are chiropractic adjustments safe for pregnant women?" and the answer is an astounding "YES!". Many of our patients who are or have been pregnant have reported a great amount of relief.
No two pregnancies are alike and as such, no two patients will be the same. We assess each patient for their musculoskeletal problems related to pregnancy and approach it using safe, conservative therapies such as adjustments, massages, stretches, light exercises, ice packs, etc. to aid in relieving those aches and pains that come along with pregnancy. Some doctors even take extra courses and certifications such as the Webster technique to achieve great results.
If you're experiencing those aches and pains associated with pregnancy, give us a call with any questions, we would love to help you out.
Until next time,
Dr. Cyrus Laali
