BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY

There are two frequently asked question regarding chiropractic care during pregnancy. “Is chiropractic treatment safe for me and my baby” and “what benefits exist in chiropractic treatment”?  First and foremost, Chiropractic treatment is safe and sensible for both the mom and the baby. Dr. Levi has successfully treated many pregnant women and has provided them with tremendous help in relieving and alleviating aches and pains that occur during pregnancy.  All treatments are manual, gentle, relaxing, and proceed with the proper techniques and equipment.  Secondly, Chiropractic care focuses on the overall effects of spinal misalignment on the nerves that carry health-giving energy to every cell. Almost, every part of your body including your spine, muscles and ligaments is affected during pregnancy. As the size of the abdomen increases, the demand for support on the spine, ribs, muscles and back also increases. With the expanding abdomen, comes certain types of aches and pains which may lead to poor posture.  Many times throughout pregnancy, a slightly restricted joint may cause nerve irritation and limit the body’s communication system, causing discomfort. Using gentle adjustment techniques Dr. Levi can alleviate this irritation and re-introduce normal function; allowing nerve impulses to flow freely throughout the body. Chiropractic helps women get well and stay well – before, during, and after pregnancy, without the use of medicine or surgery. We would like to help you experience a healthy, enjoyable, and trouble free pregnancy. Through gentle, effective and quality care call Dr. Levi for a consultation
