Hey, I’m Dr. Gregg, with Align Wellness Center, here in Northbrook, Illinois. And if you, or someone you know is pregnant right now, they’re going to want to check out this video. You know, one of the most common problems that moms to be wind up having during their pregnancy is that they wind up experiencing lower back or neck pain. Now when you’re pregnant, one of the biggest things that becomes difficult is managing medications and or drugs when you’re going through the entire process.
Parents and moms want to be as healthy as they can be, and as natural as they can be, so that their developing baby can be as healthy as they can be as well. Now, according to the American Pregnancy Association, there are about five things that pregnant moms-to-be have had major issues with, that they can solve naturally by meeting with and getting under chiropractic care.
One of the most common ones that we wind up helping out with is lower back pain. Lower back pain winds up affecting about 50% of moms-to-be. And the reason that it winds up affecting them is when we look at the spine developing, is that as a woman becomes pregnant, their body composition changes.
Their stomach and abdomen winds up becoming larger. And the lower back winds up changing the position that it’s in, and the structure that it’s in, so it becomes stressed and strained underneath the change of physical positioning and posture. When a chiropractor works with a pregnant mom-to-be, we wind up looking to understand where are their misalignments, and where is motion improper within the spine, particularly the lower back and the pelvis, to help restore proper motion.
Now this has been shown to help moms-to-be with reducing the level of pain that they experience during their pregnancy. Also, according to the American Pregnancy Association, they’ve found that chiropractic care can also help in reducing the length of time that a labor winds up being.
What an amazing thing to wind up doing. Helping a labor to be quicker can wind up making it easier on mom, easier on baby, and make it be healthier, and the need for less interventions. Additionally, they said that chiropractic care can wind up helping with reducing nausea, from morning sickness that moms wind up experiencing, as well as helping for them to maintain their flexibility. Now, I’m Dr. Gregg Gerstin, and we’ve worked with many moms-to-be in helping them to keep as healthy as they can be and as active as they can be during their entire pregnancy.
If you or someone you know is pegnant, and maybe having problems with lower back pain, or difficulty with getting through their pregnancy, please share this video with them, so they can understand that there’s a safe and natural method for them to get relief, and to help their baby stay healthy, and that they don’t need to rely on medications or drugs during their pregnancy, that can wind up affecting their developing baby.
Once again, I’m Dr. Gregg Gerstin with Align Wellness Center and I want to thank you, for letting me be a part of your health. (upbeat music).
