Prenatal Chiropractic Anoka, Andover and Coon Rapids MN

Chiropractic Care During PregnacyWhen you are pregnant, that joyous human inside your body is immediately being put first. It’s like nature’s way of preparing a mother to the reality that life is not our own. Within us, another human heart is formed. This precious being grows inside of us until he or she is ready to meet us. Pregnancy brings on a lot of teaching points that basically says that we no longer have control. Even our blood supply oxygenates our baby first. It’s just how we are wired. While there is plenty of beauty and splendor in pregnancy, there is also the real reality of pain and suffering. Hormonal changes, back pain, the labor of birth, etc. These are all things that take a great toll on a woman’s body. For this reason, Heil Chiropractic Center is here to help. Offering chiropractic care in the Andover, MN area before, during, and after pregnancy is a holistic approach to help you.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnancy?

If a stranger were to come up to you and ask to adjust your back, we would highly recommend against it. Why? Well, not just anyone should be touching your pregnant, or even non-pregnant body. At Heil Chiropractic Center, we are trained to understand the physical changes that occur within a pregnant body. We use chiropractic care as a way to help ease the pains of carrying extra weight, help to facilitate an easier and faster labor, and give you general wellness throughout your gestation.

Helping Labor

Labor is like no other pain in the entire world. Don’t get us wrong, it’s worth every bit of it but don’t you want to do everything in your power to prepare? With chiropractic adjustments, we work on allowing your uterus to function at it’s full potential. Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce labor time and ease labor pains, making your actual labor a more comfortable and safe process for both you and the baby.

There are so many other benefits of chiropractic care during labor. Maintaining pregnancy, controlling vomiting and other hormonal disadvantages, even reducing the likelihood of postpartum depression are just some of the many things that chiropractic care for pregnant women can help achieve.

If you are pregnant, seeking chiropractic care in the Andover, MN area may be the perfect solution for you. So many things during pregnancy and motherhood are out of your control. It’s time that you do something that’s good for both you and your baby.
