Pregnancy Pain Treatment
During pregnancy, many women experience pain in their lower back due to a shift of weight to the front of the pelvis, especially during the third trimester. Studies, including the research from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, have shown that with the help of chiropractic care, pregnant women were able to restore their balance, reduce their pain, avoid the use of pain medications, and even reduce time in labor.
How Chiropractic Can Help You
In order to properly heal your back, chiropractors perform "adjustments", or manipulations, to your spine. These treatments reduce or eliminate the inflammation on the nerve or in the surrounding soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons or ligaments. With the inflammation gone and your range of motion is restored, you can enjoy a pain free spine that's less likely to become arthritic as you age.
Dr. Schillinger uses a variety of adjusting techniques, which allows you to choose a treatment style that's most comfortable for you.
A major benefit of chiropractic care is that it does not require medications or surgery.
Because Schillinger Chiropractic and Wellness Center is focused on patient education, you'll learn the lifestyle changes you'll need to make (in exercise, diet, stress management) in order to maintain your spinal health on your own.
