Chiropractic During Pregnancy in Coeur d'Alene ID

Can chiropractic be an option that can help ease the body and mind? For many, chiropractic care has been observed to help them during their pregnancy and during birth in a number of ways.  Chiropractic care is especially needed during pregnancy because of the many physical and chemical changes the woman’s body is going through.  So having a Doctor of Chiropractic on your health team may be the very thing your body needs to help during this very important journey.

During pregnancy the spinal structure becomes more flexible due to hormonal changes which relax the ligaments in the pelvis, preparing them for stretching during childbirth.  If a woman has an unstable spine, this could aggravate underlying spinal problems.  At Natural Spine Solutions, Dawn Fichter, DC has the training and 18 years of experience working with pregnant women and children.  Dr. Fichter uses various techniques to provide the safest and most effective treatment based on an individual’s needs.

And as important as it to maintain a healthy spine during pregnancy it is equally as important to have good posture and maintain healthy body mechanics.  How you lift and carry groceries or pick up a toddler during pregnancy is important in reducing your risk of injury.  The culprit for many moms is bending at the waist, locking the knees which puts strain on the low back.  It is important to remember to bend the knees and engage the core muscles when lifting any item.

Beginning the process of pregnancy and birth can be overwhelming for many but it doesn’t have to be.  By asking questions and having a healthcare team of individuals that are there to support you through the process can make this better.  By having the right team, your body will be prepared and you will be happy as a result. We encourage you to join our community of moms who have discovered the difference of chiropractic and the benefit in what we do.
