Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman's life, but it can also be a very stressful time on her body. During pregnancy there are a lot of hormonal changes that take place, these changes increase the laxity of the connective tissue in the body. This combined with the weight gain caused by the growing baby can allow for shifts to occur very easily in the weight bearing structures of the spine and pelvis. When these shifts occur it can begin to put pressure on the nerves which can lead to a great deal of low back pain and discomfort.
As you know in order to protect the developing baby, during pregnancy women have to be very careful what they put in their bodies and that means pain killers are not always an option. Chiropractic care can offer natural effective pain relief for the mom without any risk to the baby. By restoring the spine/pelvis to its normal structure the nervous system is free to function as it should, meaning that Mom can spend this very special time in her life pain free.
Many women also report that chiropractic care helped immensely with the delivery. With the pelvis properly aligned the baby has a clear path out the birth canal making labor shorter and more comfortable for the patient. Dr. Creehan is also certified in Webster's Technique. This technique was designed specifically to align the SI joints and thus restore neuro-biomechanical function to the pelvis. In doing so you provide the baby with the optimal conditions to assume the normal birthing position.
