Why is it important to have chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Many changes take place in a woman’s body during pregnancy. Your center of gravity changes as the abdomen starts to protrude causing an increased curve in the lower back. Numerous changes take place in the pelvis and the entire body makes postural adaptations for the increased weight and shape.
