Pregnancy is a physically demanding experience. Stretched. Kicked. Poked and prodded. And all the common, in pain. Dr. Stan G. Langford III offers chiropractic adjustments and therapy at his Chula Vista, CA, practice for pregnancy pain relief. Dr. Langford uses the activator method of adjustment for relieving pregnancy-related discomfort. Studies show that 90 percent of pregnant patients experience low back pain relief with chiropractic treatment.
Common Pregnancy Pains
The body goes through many changes to prepare for and create an environment for your developing baby. These changes can lead to issues such as a misaligned spine or joints. Some of the common complaints during pregnancy are:
Lower back pain is the most common complaint; in fact, one study reports that over half of pregnant women experience significant low back pain. The cause is often a condition known as sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
As the belly grows, mothers naturally tend to lean backward to counter-balance the weight. As they do, abnormal pressure on the pelvis joints leads to dysfunction and pain. Fortunately, gentle chiropractic treatment naturally corrects the sacroiliac joint function, and provides pain relief, without potentially harmful medication.
Faster and Less Painful Labor and Quicker Recovery
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction that causes pain during pregnancy can continue to cause problems during labor. In vaginal delivery, the pelvis must expand to let the baby pass through the pelvis and birth canal. Stiff or dysfunctional pelvic joints can slow or even prevent this process, causing pain, prolonged labor, and an increased likelihood that a cesarean section will become necessary.
Let Dr. Langford help your body heal itself rapidly by restoring normal function through chiropractic adjustments and therapy – and enjoy your baby, pain-free.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe during Pregnancy?
Chiropractic care is generally safe during pregnancy, but it is important to choose a reputable chiropractor who has the necessary experience and qualifications to provide gentle and effective care. Dr. Langford has more than 30 years offering comprehensive chiropractic services and has earned the trust and loyalty of satisfied patients.
Chiropractic care has been providing pregnancy relief to women for over 100 years. The Activator method of adjustment is a particularly safe, gentle treatment for pregnancy care and is offered in our San Diego County office by Dr. Langford. This technique is a type of chiropractic manipulation and is administered through a hand-held mechanical instrument that emits low-force impulse at the treatment points. This system addresses several types of back pain and neck pain as well as headaches.
Make Your Pregnancy a Smooth Process
Nine months of pregnancy involving weight gain, hormonal changes, and severely altered biomechanics wreak havoc on even the healthiest mothers. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, plantar Plantar Fasciitis, and back pain can linger long after baby has arrived. Let Dr. Langford help your body heal itself rapidly by restoring normal function through chiropractic adjustments and therapy – and enjoy your baby, pain-free.
