Voice For Health – Front And Center

Dr. FreedmanIf a pregnant woman notes that her balance is a little off, it is due to the fact that her center of gravity is shifting. As her belly grows larger, a pregnant woman’s pelvis starts to naturally roll forward into an anterior pelvic tilt. This shift leads to changes in the alignment of the spine, as modifications in posture place more strain on the lower back and pelvic areas. In addition, as the uterus enlarges and expands forward, muscle cramps and nerve pain may arise. If a woman goes into pregnancy with poor spinal alignment, it may worsen, setting the stage for increased discomfort during labor and difficulty during delivery. Regular chiropractic examinations during pregnancy help ease discomfort through delivery.

Chiropractic adjustments are safe during pregnancy. Chiropractors alter techniques and patient positioning to accommodate for the increase in belly and breast size. Spinal adjustments are especially gentle during pregnancy and far less force is used. To schedule an appointment for chiropractic care, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617- 472-4220. We are located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints of pregnant women, as the (lordotic) curve of their lower backs increases inward.
