I knew that my body was going to change when I became pregnant, and I was actually looking forward to that. I am still amazed at the role a woman plays in becoming a mother, and that is after having three children of my own. However, when I was pregnant with my first child, I was not prepared for the pain that would come even before the labor. I had some people in my pregnancy support forums tell me to research Pleasanton chiropractors because the right chiropractor would be one of the most valuable people on my pregnancy team.
I can definitely understand that now, but I was clueless then. I thought that back pain was just something I was going to have to suffer through, but I found out that there are a lot of things that can be done to help alleviate some if not all of the pain. My next concern was how the chiropractor would be able to work on my back, because I did not feel comfortable laying on my tummy. I soon found out that there are special tables that are used, and that not only was my baby completely comfortable, but I was too!
The chiropractor that I went to was actually very knowledgeable about pregnancies. When he told me that women actually have an easier pregnancy when they receive care from a chiropractor, I knew that i was going to see him for several months. The funny thing is that it did not take long for him to relieve the pain that was in my back. He did explain why the lower back is affected so much during a pregnancy, and why adjustments are necessary to regain the proper alignment. I did have a much easier pregnancy after that, and I saw him for my other two as well!
