Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a wonderful time for mothers-to-be as they await the birth of their child. Sadly, countless of women experience some pain during pregnancy in many different ways. A common symptom is neck and back pain, and often it is recommended to see a chiropractor to alleviate the pain.

Doctors will encourage women to see a chiropractor during and after pregnancy due to the changes in the body as well. There are pelvic and abdominal changes that occur during pregnancy which happen to provide a comfortable environment for the unborn fetus, but not for the mommy-to-be. These changes can also put stress on the sciatic nerve, which is a pain in the lower back and shoots down the end of the leg. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body.  

If you are pregnant and are feeling pain, a chiropractor could help limit the discomfort. Pernice Chiropractic, a chiropractor in Selden NY, can bring positive results during pregnancy which includes:
