Pregnancy is a special time for many women, and it's important to take extra care of your body during this period. Many pregnant women seek regular chiropractic care to help with physical changes that can occur during pregnancy. All chiropractors receive some training in prenatal adjustments, although some are certified in something called the Webster Technique, which provides more experience. As a baby grows, its center of gravity changes and often its posture is affected, which is where much of the attention will be focused.
Physical changes during pregnancy can cause discomfort in the spine and joints. When you first learn that you're pregnant, you may be concerned about the safety of chiropractic care. Fortunately, in most cases, a pregnant person can benefit from chiropractic care with little risk. If you need a chiropractor in Lithia Springs, AICA Lithia Springs focuses specifically on car accident injuries.
In the event of an auto accident, emergency services will evaluate the site and determine if emergency medical care is needed or if you need to be taken to the hospital. Aside from specific cases where the doctor or gynecologist recommends abstaining from chiropractic care to avoid further complications, chiropractic care is generally safe during pregnancy.
