Pregnancy and Chiropractic

When a woman becomes pregnant, it is very common for medical doctors to treat her as if she had a disease. Allopathic practitioners regularly attach a diagnosis code in the patient’s chart and proceed to treat the condition of pregnancy as a sickness. Insurance plans obviously cover the condition of pregnancy and so there are naturally many procedures and medical protocols that are billed to a patient over a nine month period of time.

Just about any other animal on our planet is capable of delivering its offspring in a natural environment without a group of medical specialists standing around a birthing table. Some animals routinely birth an entire litter of offspring at the same time without any complications. A horse, a cow, a giraffe and countless other examples could be cited to demonstrate that the birthing process is not a disease but rather a natural process within nature that has been artificially complicated by traditional medicine when it comes to human beings.

If it makes good sense to get your spine checked for vertebral subluxations when you are not pregnant it would logically make good sense to get your spine checked when you are pregnant. It is perfectly safe for a woman to receive chiropractic adjustments during her entire pregnancy.

Misaligned vertebrae (vertebral subluxations) can interfere with the human nervous system and can cause an impediment to a human being’s health. All people need to have a properly functioning nervous system at all times during the course of their lives.

There are many ways to modify adjusting techniques through the various stages of a woman’s pregnancy and women should take full advantage of getting under chiropractic care while being pregnant.

Ideally, you always want your body functioning at its full potential. In the case of pregnancy, when a child is forming and growing, it is especially important for a woman’s body to be operating as efficiently as possible. Chiropractic care allows all human beings to have a better expression of health and to operate, physiologically speaking, at a very efficient level.
