So, you just found out that you are pregnant!
Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting and life changing times in a woman’s life.
During pregnancy a woman’s body goes through amazing changes physically, emotionally and hormonally while all of this takes place to accommodate and make room for the growing baby.
Weight gain with increased joint and ligament laxity may combine to make a pregnant woman feel aches and pains especially in the back, as well as the neck and shoulders.
As the baby grows increasing pressure can become more intense in the lower back, legs, pelvic region, neck and shoulders as her center of gravity changes and her spine is forced into an abnormal curvature which can place more stress on the spinal column from the neck all the way down to the lower back.
A gentle, safe and effective chiropractic adjustment can be beneficial in relieving these problems.
Along with proper regular obstetrics care and support, Dr. Podlaski can help to develop an effective pregnancy plan that fits your individual needs and goals with exercise, nutritional support and gentle, safe manipulation to control pain.
By following customized, personal plan, Dr. Podlaski should be able to help in easing your aches and pains while you concentrate on staying healthy and strong through your labor and delivery.
For women that may have difficulty in conceiving or staying pregnant, Dr. Podlaski may be helpful by looking at a variety of factors that may contribute to the problem. This may include checking hormone balance, nutrition status or deficiency, allergies or internal organ dysfunction.
After your baby is born, Dr. Podlaski can continue to be an integral part of the post-pregnancy recovery and healing process. Many women continue with post- delivery care which will promote healing, relaxation, re-establish proper nutrition and any lingering pain relief.
