Are you excited to bring your little one into the world but not looking forward to the discomfort of pregnancy? A visit with Dr. Felicity Keough-Bligh, Dr. Caitlin Cross, and Dr. Michelle Mashinter at Keough Chiropractic – your prenatal chiropractor in St. Charles, MO – can help you achieve a more pleasant experience.
Effects of Pregnancy On the Spine
You’re probably aware of how pregnancy can impact your energy, your appetite, your mood, and more. Morning sickness, aches, and pains are all “normal” parts of pregnancy.
Are you aware, though, that as your body adapts and the baby grows inside of you it can impact your spinal column? It can cause spinal misalignment, nerve and disc compression, muscle tension, and more.
Those effects can not only make pregnancy more uncomfortable but also make labor longer and more intensive. Additionally, it can leave you with problems for years to come.
