How Chiropractic Can Help

Here at Clearview Family Chiropractic, we want to first determine the primary factors that you are experiencing pain and discomfort during your pregnancy through a proper examination.  One common cause for back pain during pregnancy is abnormal positioning of the SI joint (sacrum (tailbone) and pelvis) bones in the lower back. A misalignment or subluxation in this region can affect the muscles, ligaments and tendons or even more importantly, cause irritation and inflammation to the surrounding nerves creating a disruption in the nerve pathways between the brain and body leading to many different types of secondary symptoms of pregnancy pain. If it is determined that we can help you, we utilize gentle and precise Chiropractic adjustments as well as educating on exercises, stretches and proper postural techniques to help align the spine and pelvis  which can aid in pain reduction and more importantly allow the nervous system to function optimally which is crucial to the development of your baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom as well as ensures that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. Maintaining this proper pelvis alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth. This is something that is very vital to the health of both mom and baby.
