Blomerth Chiropractic provides gentle pre-natal care for moms-to-be. Adjustments and soft-tissue therapies restore pelvic and spinal alignment, alleviating back pain and other issues and optimizing the health of both mother and baby.
Peabody, MA - February 10, 2018 - Dr. Ellen Blomerth and Dr. Steven Blomerth, DC, of Blomerth Chiropractic provide pre-natal care to alleviate back pain and other pregnancy-related concerns.
To support the growing baby, a woman's body undergoes tremendous changes in a short time. A protruding abdomen, altered posture, and changes to the pelvic region place pressure on the back and cause soft tissues to stretch. A misaligned spine and pelvis not only cause discomfort to the mother, they can also create space constraints in the uterus, making it more difficult for the baby to move around and get into the correct position for birth.
Dr. Blomerth provides a variety of therapies to help pregnant women enjoy their best health possible. Adjustments (administered on a special table for pregnant patients) mitigate back strain and relax the uterus. When the spinal vertebrae are positioned properly, the nervous system can function at its best, which optimizes overall health. Restoring pelvic alignment gives the baby as much room as possible, reducing the likelihood of a breech delivery or difficult labor.
Soft-tissue therapies, such as massage, can be especially helpful during pregnancy to ease sore muscles and ligaments. The chiropractor also recommends light exercises and stretches that help keep the pelvic area balanced without placing too much stress on the body.
One reason many patients are turning to chiropractic is because it offers a natural alternative to the medications typically prescribed by conventional doctors. Most woman want to limit their use of pain medicine during pregnancy. Chiropractic care addresses the underlying causes of pain to provide effective, long-lasting relief.
