The third trimester is a pre-labor peak of discomfort
There is so much going on- you feel mentally drained, emotionally exhausted and physically short of sleep. Your body is strained from the baby's near-full grown weight. Many women in the third trimester report symptoms of:
- Frequent urination
- Fatigue and anxiety
- Back pain and associated discomfort
As contractions begin, the discomfort can reach a breaking point; at Scorca Chiropractic Center, our job is to keep you from reaching that point! We want to help strengthen your body against the physical and emotional challenges of the third trimester. Read on to find out how we can help.
Chiropractic for third trimester pregnancies
Chiropractic is considered a safe and effective care option for women in all phases of pregnancy. While your primary care physician and other doctors will look after the specifics of your pregnancy, we will look after your body. The problems stem from the fact that your pelvic region is destabilized, with hormones contributing to loosened ligaments, a shifting center of gravity and the growing weight of the baby. By using spinal adjustments, we are able to prevent your spine from impinging on nerves, as well as allay the causes of muscle spasm. Third trimester chiropractic also focuses on ensuring that the baby presents in the proper direction for birth. We are a Webster-certified clinic, meaning that we can provide the hands-on treatment you and your baby need to have a successful, complication-free pregnancy.
