Seattle Chiropractor Discusses Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Seattle Chiropractor Discusses Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Hey, it’s Dr. Zapata with Emerald City Spinal Care in Seattle. Over the years, I have worked with numerous patients who were pregnant, and found that they expressed many benefits of being under chiropractic care for the duration of their pregnancy – as well as after giving birth. So, with that thought in mind, I wanted to share with you three reasons why it is important to see a chiropractor during (and after) pregnancy!

  1. Receiving gentle, specific adjustments helps to ensure that your spine is properly aligned. Studies have shown that 94% of women who received chiropractic care during pregnancy reported a decrease in pregnancy related pain and discomfort.
  2. Easier labor and delivery. Chiropractic adjustments in Seattle have been shown to help reduce fetal distress, allow for fewer medical interventions, and shorter labors. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, mothers who received regular chiropractic care experienced 25% shorter labor times.
  3. Post-partum care. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to help restore proper body mechanics after delivery of a baby. And, chiropractic care can also help improve your posture for breast-feeding.

That’s it for this week’s tip! If you or someone you know is pregnant, or recently gave birth, it may be worth exploring the benefits of chiropractic care!

For all of us at Emerald City Spinal Care in Seattle, thanks and have a great week!
