Chiropractic for Pregnancy in Murrysville?

Chiropractor Murrysville PA Aaron Tressler Pregnancy Support

The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. It's common for women to visit a chiropractic office in Murrysville regularly for low back pain, as well as other related issues, such as sciatica, leg cramps and constipation. This can lead to difficulty performing daily tasks as well as difficulties in labor.

Chiropractic treatment for pregnancy can be an outstanding source of relief for back pain. Many women also comment that the birthing process was easier after having undergone chiropractic treatments. The following article takes a more in-depth look at the discomfort caused by pregnancy and explains exactly how chiropractic treatment can help.


Prenatal Chiropractic in Murrysville

During pregnancy, a woman’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. As the baby grows, a mother’s center of gravity shifts to the front of her pelvis, resulting in added stress and discomfort in the lower back and the various joints of the pelvis. At the peak of pregnancy, resulting from the associated weight gain, the curve in the lower back (lordotic curve) can increase to the point of causing serious impact on the vertebral joints, the sacrum, and the hip joints.

The nerves that travel to all other parts of the body have their origin in the spine. When the spine is compressed, these nerves can become irritated causing the pain to radiate to other areas of the body. Sciatica is a condition commonly stimulated by pregnancy, involving pain that radiates from the lower back all the way down the legs.

If a previous issue exists with the alignment of the spine, and there has been a history of lower back problems, pregnancy will often aggravate the condition. Pregnancy can cause the spine to become misaligned to the point that it does not simply go back into place once the pregnancy is complete. This can make the tasks that become necessary once the child is born, such as carrying a baby on your front or back, breast-feeding, and bending over to lift and pick things up, painfully difficult.


Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic practitioners can provide safe and effective personalized care throughout your pregnancy and in the postpartum period. A thorough examination will determine the best treatment to address your discomfort and prepare the body for the height of pregnancy and childbirth. There are specialized adjustment methods to accommodate pregnancy. These treatments may reduce the need for pain medications throughout the delivery as well as help to reduce labor time. Follow up treatments can assist in realigning the body after the pregnancy and speed up the transition to a healthy post-pregnancy body.

Emily's Story - Becoming a Doula

Chiropractic Murrysville PA Emily Fry Meet The Team

I knew I would end up serving in a field of work that was close to childbirth and women. Since I was young I have been enthralled by the process of pregnancy and birth. The beautiful roar of a mother bringing life into this world is quite empowering and beautiful. At a young age I was able to witness my siblings home births. It was an experience that I will never forget and that I blame for putting this fire in my heart.

I became a doula because I know that in today's world, pregnancy and childbirth can be extremely overwhelming. I want to help mothers understand that they have so many choices to make and I want to help them make an informed one. I am honored to work alongside a community of women to serve women.
