Pregnancy Chiropractor Melbourne Explains
The basic principle of chiropractic relates to the ability of the human brain to process all the incoming information (sensory input), integrate it at various points along the pathways and create an appropriate, measured response (motor output).
This whole process is described as afferentation and it is this motor output that causes your body to function in balance and a state of wellness.
The practice of chiropractic is essentially the measurement of this motor output which allows us to identify where in the body to take a contact and make a highly specific, fast thrust which we call an adjustment.
This really fast thrust provides what is termed impulse into the nervous system which is carried to the brain by the nerves where it “resets” the brain function to allow an appropriate motor outflow.
In following this principle, the chiropractor seeks to influence the quality of the output from the brain which in turn has the potential to affect most of the structures of the human body.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to be safe for both mother and foetus.
Your Changing Body
As your pregnancy progresses there will be an increase in circulating hormones which cause significant muscle and ligament relaxation.
In light of these changes your chiropractor will apply gentle, highly precise adjusting techniques designed to provide the best therapeutic outcome while ensuring maximum comfort and safety for both the expectant mother and baby.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy offers general health benefits. It is a medication-free approach to pain reduction that restores functional balance to the pelvis with its connecting muscles and ligaments. Clinical research has demonstrated that pelvic constraint is lessened by chiropractic care during pregnancy which may potentially lead to a better delivery.
In one study by Fallon, it was found that in mothers who had chiropractic care during pregnancy, first-time deliveries (prima gravida) averaged a 24% shorter labour, while experienced (multiparous) mothers had a 39% reduction in the average labour time in a statistically significant percentage of births.
Dr Irvin Henderson MD (a member of the American Medical Association Board of Trustees) has reported that women who received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver their child with much more comfort.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is just a natural choice.
