Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy Problems


Pregnancy and childbirth are among the most exquisite and miraculous moments in life. However, as it requires compatibility from both parents and proper care, not all pregnancies are successful. Below are some of the most common problems that mothers face.

Damaged Egg or Sperm Cells

Upon conception, a lot of things may actually go wrong. For one, an ovary may not discharge an egg; or should it do so, the egg may be weak or damaged. A woman who is a bit older, smokes or uses drugs, or has been exposed to chemicals and radiation is said to be likelier to produce these kinds of immature and damaged eggs.

For men, on the other hand, they might have problem producing good sperms due to several reasons. A similar case may be that they are able to produce, but their production is slow-moving. When any of these situations happen, the damaged reproductive cells may not be able to join successfully, or if they do, they may produce a fertilized egg that will not survive the early stages of growth.

Blocked or Bent Fallopian Tube

There are also other problems whose causes could be rooted to the systems and organs in the woman’s body. One of which is a blocked or bent fallopian tube which in turn can prevent the entry of the sperm to the uterus. Similarly, some women may have problems with their endometrium which would not allow a fertilized egg from being implanted. Aside from these two, the abnormalities in the levels of hormones, either as being too low or too high, can actually disrupt the entire cycle. However, it is good to know that most occurrences of these problems are now medically treatable.

Improper Timing

Assuming of course that all these turn out to be in perfect order, timing is still essential for a successful conception. Hence, the sperm and the egg must be able to meet, if the sperm arrives way ahead in the uterus before the woman ovulates, the sperms will perish even before the egg comes out. If, on the other hand, they are late in coming, they will miss the opportunity to meet the egg.

Although fertilization can happen only when there is an egg, it is a fact that not all women regularly ovulate. Some women have their eggs emerge earlier or later than usual, particularly for younger women who have irregular periods still. Hence, there would always be some possibility that she may be fertile at any moment, even at times that she is having her period.

To avoid these pregnancy problems, it is best that both the mother and father maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating well balanced meals, getting enough sleep, taking in essential vitamins and minerals, avoiding drinking and smoking, engaging in proper exercise, and getting massage therapy or chiropractic care,

How Chiropractic Care Helps with Pregnancy Problems

In general, chiropractic care remove sublaxations or damages in the nervous system. And when the nervous system is free from any pain, discomfort, or damage, the body goes back to functioning normally and healthily. This includes helping the body cope with infertility and pregnancy issues.

Regular chiropractic adjustments get rid of back pain and spinal problems which may contribute to the irregularity of an individual’s reproductive system. When these irregularities are removed or minimized, the chances for a man or a woman to produce the right amount of reproductive cells may increase. Moreover, chiropractic care also helps relieve stress, headaches, and even mental and emotional strains that also negatively affect conception.

To discuss these infertility and pregnancy problems, it is best to consult with a chiropractor to know what proper steps you need to take.
