Prenatal Muscle Therapy

many women use chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy

While pregnancy is an exciting time, it can present unique physical challenges to a mother-to-be. With prenatal massage in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley, the discomfort, circulatory, respiratory digestive, elimination and muscular or joint issues typically associated with pregnancy can be somewhat alleviated to promote a more relaxed and improved feeling of well-being. As performed by a trained prenatal massage therapist, treatment is adapted to the changes in a woman’s body and the challenges faced during each trimester.

While a calm and more relaxed mother-to-be is good for a baby’s in utero development, there is also some statistical evidence to suggest that regular prenatal massage plays a role in reducing delivery time, the need for epidural anesthesia or pain medications, and leads to fewer cesarean births.

Added Stress as Pregnancy Progresses

Throughout the pregnancy, as the baby grows, the mother gains more weight, adding to the stress on the lower back and increasing the lordotic curvature of her lower back. If the sufferer already has a history of lower back problems there is a good chance that the pregnancy will aggravate the condition. This may lead to difficulty performing daily routines such as dressing or working, and can create complications during labor.

Stress on the lower back can create many more additional problems. Issues such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation and more have been reported.
