Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustments May Help Reduce Risk for Breech Birth, Says Back to Health Family Chiropractic

FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- July, August, September, and October are some of the busiest months for labor and delivery at hospitals and birthing centers across the country. As expectant mothers prepare to give birth, Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin of Back To Health Family Chiropractic is raising awareness about the role that prenatal chiropractic care can play in preparing a woman's body for child birth. For women with a birth plan that calls for a natural birth and avoiding a C-section, discovering that a baby is in breech position late in the pregnancy can be frustrating, says Dr. Michlin. A specialized chiropractic adjustment technique may help turn the baby and reduce the risk for a breech birth.

"If a baby becomes breech, there are chiropractic adjustments that can gently help turn the baby around," said Dr. Michlin. "Additionally, adjustments help to maintain proper alignment of the pelvis and spine, which reduces intrauterine constraint. I recommend expectant mothers receiving regular adjustments throughout pregnancy in order to prepare for a safe and healthy delivery."

In addition to increasing the likelihood for a natural birth, Dr. Michlin also says that prenatal chiropractic adjustments can help relieve common pregnancy-related pains, including lower back pain.

"As a woman's body changes to accommodate a growing fetus, these changes place additional pressure on the joints," said Dr. Michlin. "Expectant mothers can experience significant lower back pain, hip pain and joint pain. Gentle adjustments designed specifically for pregnant women help to reduce this pain and support a healthy pregnancy. As a chiropractor, my goal is to help women during pregnancy by alleviating their pain without the need for medication and preparing their bodies for a safe and healthy delivery."

Dr. Michlin works with women throughout the duration of their pregnancy providing specialized chiropractic adjustments and nutritional counseling designed to meet their evolving needs. The Fort Worth chiropractor says that chiropractic care may also be beneficial for women who are trying to conceive.

"For women struggling to conceive, chiropractic care may be able to increase the likelihood for conception," said Dr. Michlin. "We work closely with each patient to create a customized treatment plan designed specifically to meet their evolving needs before, during and after pregnancy."

In addition to specialized prenatal chiropractic adjustments, Back To Health Family Chiropractic offers comprehensive pain management care for back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, sciatica, fibromyalgia and scoliosis. As North Texas' only certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor, Dr. Michlin offers upper cervical chiropractic care utilizing the Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting technique.

"The Atlas vertebrae is the top cervical bone in the neck," said Dr. Michlin. "When it is out of alignment, this can cause the entire spine to experience alignment problems. Atlas adjustments bring back correct alignment for whole body health."
