Are you pregnant in Chapel Hill NC or plan on being pregnant sometime soon? Even before you become pregnant, Dr. Cosmas Leigh at Leigh Brain & Spine can detect any imbalances in the pelvis or elsewhere in your body that could contribute to pregnancy discomfort or possible neuromusculoskeletal problems after childbirth.
What is Natural Pregnancy Care?
Many pregnant women have found that spinal adjustments provide relief from the increased low-back pain brought on by pregnancy. Spinal manipulation is safe for pregnant women and their babies and can be especially attractive to those who are trying to avoid medications in treating their back pain. New studies in respected medical journals have shown that spinal alignment during pregnancy can reduce the need for medications and medical procedures during the birthing process allowing women to enjoy a more natural birth. Studies also reveal that spinal alignment can reduce labor and delivery time.
The benefits for the woman are clear but the benefits for their new babies are astounding. Babies are born healthier and more vital following an easier birth. The team at Leigh Brain are also skilled at prescribing all-natural vitamins, minerals, and supplements to support mom and baby’s needs during pregnancy. Dr. Cosmas Leigh also provides nutrition, ergonomic, and exercise advice to help a woman enjoy a healthy pregnancy.
Spinal care can also help after childbirth. In the eight weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten up again. Ideally, joint problems brought on during pregnancy from improper lifting or reaching should be treated before the ligaments return to their pre-pregnancy state-to prevent muscle tension, headaches, rib discomfort, and shoulder problems.
