Dr. Lisa Smycz works closely with pregnant women.It is important to care for your spine during pregnancy. The amazing changes that occur as your baby is growing will cause ligaments to relax to prepare you for the delivery. As your baby grows your posture will adapt for the increase in weight.
If your spine is in great health and well aligned then these changes should not cause any problems. If this is not the case then you may be experiencing pain and discomfort and your pregnancy may not prove to be such a wonderful experience.
A misaligned or twisted pelvis will not only be uncomfortable for the mother but may also affect how your baby gets through the birth canal during the birth, as the muscles, ligaments and connective tissue around the growing baby are pulled out of shape creating an uneven tightening around the baby. Also if the pelvis is twisted your baby's growth and movement may be compromised, affecting their nerve system development. Research shows that the brain of the unborn learns through movement and any constraint reduces the rate of the baby's movement.
If the baby's head is confined and held against the mothers pelvis for prolonged time-this can alter the shape of the new born head and if unresolved, could lead to learning difficulties.
Chiropractic care helps to keep your pelvis aligned allowing baby to grow comfortably in the womb and to safely travel through the birth canal. It may also help you regain normal strength and movement post pregnancy, which you will need as you carry your special little bundle in your arms.
Chiropractic care is very gentle during pregnancy. Dr. Lisa Smycz uses special techniques and positioning to keep you comfortable at all times.
Begin your pregnancy chiropractic care before you conceive and prepare your body for the miraculous journey ahead of you. With gentle chiropractic care, you will not have to suffer the pains and twinges sometimes experienced during pregnancy and you can enjoy every moment.
