AIEA, Hawaii, Oct. 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Expectant mothers often benefit from chiropractic adjustments and complementing services for a range of conditions that occur during pregnancy, reports Chiropractic Family Health Center. Pregnant women who want to experience a healthy pregnancy with reduced discomfort often turn to chiropractic for gentle and effective care.
Chiropractic care can reduce accompanying aches and pains without medication and realign the structure of the body to create an optimal environment for the safe development of fetuses and delivery of newborns. Women often experience lower back pain during the third trimester of pregnancy when they have a significant amount of weight and pressure on the pelvis and lower back, which can exacerbate pre-existing conditions, such as herniations, bulging discs, sciatica and radiculopathy.
Pregnant women experience specific symptoms and require tailored treatment. A female’s changing body, laxity in ligaments and new weight distribution can place additional stress on the vertebrae and cause misalignment on the spinal column, added stress on sensitive nerves and unusual discomfort. Chiropractic is useful to balance the spinal column and ensure that weight is easier to carry. An Aiea chiropractor can assist with prenatal chiropractic care and pain management through all stages of a pregnancy.
A pregnant woman will have their center of gravity shift toward the front of the pelvis. This will cause additional stress to the lower back and joints of the pelvis. As the pregnancy progresses, additional weight increases the curvature of the lower back and places more pressure on the facet joints of the lower back. If a woman has pre-existing conditions, the changes can tax the area, cause pain and make it difficult to perform routine activities.
“Pregnant women find significant pain relief without medication and can improve the environment for safer and easier deliveries. Studies have shown that the use of chiropractic have even reduced delivery time,” said Dr. Paul Kurihara, DC. “As an experienced chiropractor, I offer spinal adjustments, as well as nutritional, exercise and ergonomic techniques to address the unique needs of a woman’s changing body during this special time.”
Dr. Paul Kurihara, DC, Aiea and Pearl City chiropractor and owner of Chiropractic Family Health Center, serves residents of Pearl City, Halawa, Waipahu, Makakilo and surrounding areas. The entire family can feel and function better with their chiropractic and wellness services including chiropractic care, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and spinal and postural screenings.
