One of the most important times for Birmingham women to see a chiropractor is before and during pregnancy.
Seeing a prenatal chiropractor is important for both mom and baby. The changes in a woman's body during pregnancy put added stress on the spine and nerves. This is why things like sciatic pain, low back pain, and other biomechanical ailments are so common during pregnancy.
Maintaining chiropractic care during pregnancy will help the body adapt to its temporarily altered state. The result is a more comfortable pregnancy and shorter labor times, less risk of medical intervention (C-Section).
