Belly Bliss offers a variety of chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is safe throughout pregnancy, for both Mom and Baby.
Early in a woman’s pregnancy, her center of gravity begins to shift forward to the front of her pelvis. Although a woman's pelvis is designed for pregnancy and childbirth, the displaced weight still increases the stress on her joints and muscles. As the baby grows in size, this weight increases the curvature of her low back, which can increase the stress to the spinal discs. Any imbalances present in the woman’s pelvis prior to pregnancy become greatly exaggerated throughout her pregnancy. This can cause new aches and pains, difficulty with daily tasks, or make it harder to exercise or sleep. Our chiropractic treatments restore the imbalances present in your pelvis, helping you to function at 100%.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy not only helps you to stay more comfortable, it can also help to facilitate your birth. Regularly scheduled adjustments during pregnancy have been shown to substantially reduce a woman’s labor length. First time moms averaged a 24% shorter labor, while mothers who have already given birth experienced a 39% reduction in the average labor length, compared to controls. Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can also help ensure your baby is in optimal fetal position. This reduces the likelihood of posterior, breech, or transverse presentation. Regular chiropractic adjustments can safely continue up until the time of birth.
Chiropractic care can help women struggling with fertility challenges
Chiropractic care can improve the overall function of our nervous system, including the reproductive system. The nerve pathways to our reproductive organs pass through the lower portion of our back and sacrum. Any dysfunction, such as structural or biomechanical stress, can apply pressure to these nerves. When pressure is applied it can interfere with the nerve impulses and result in reduced function or overstimulation of the reproductive organs and associated tissues. Some women may display symptoms such as pain, muscle spasm, or fertility challenges.
Many chiropractic patients have sought care for a low back or pelvic condition and found themselves pregnant! The average patient seeking care for infertility can expect to see positive changes in 3-4 months. This includes improvement in hormone levels, endometrial thickening, and normalization of luteal phases.
Belly Bliss's chiropractic treatments can be safely added to any existing fertility treatments.
Women have found a great many benefits from chiropractic care. Chiropractic patients experience a reduction in premenstrual symptoms including cramping, bloating, low back pain, headache, and fatigue. Improvements in nervous system function also help regulate the digestive system. Chiropractic patients previously diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome have seen a reduction or resolution of their symptoms. In the United States, nearly 60% of chiropractic patients are female. Women especially are taking advantage of natural chiropractic care to help regulate hormones, manage stress, and help improve their immune system, spinal mobility and overall health.
Many parents are not aware of the benefits of chiropractic care for infants and children. Their spines and nervous systems face daily challenges similar to ours. Sometimes the symptoms are obvious: colic, reflux, chronic ear infections. Sometimes they are more subtle, such as poor sleep habits, digestive challenges, or facial asymmetry. Dr. Voigts specializes in newborn care, successfully treating infants only a few hours old. Through gentle examination and palpation, any challenges to the infant spine and nervous system can be easily identified. Dr. Voigts uses a safe, low-impact method of adjusting to help resolve these challenges, allowing your child to reach their maximum potential.
