I am Dr Cynthia Seaman, a progressive chiropractor, serving the Edgebrook and northwest side of Chicago. For many years I have been using my gentle chiropractic healing hands for expectant mothers.
If you are a mother to be you will find chiropractic heightens the vitality in your body so you can have a comfortable, energetic pregnancy. Chiropractic treatments take care of the joints out of position so your body can be relaxed, your muscles aren't tight and your nervous system is really humming.
Pregnancy can be hard on your lower back, neck and shoulders. Examine the body of an expectant mother from the side and it is easy to see why they are in pain. Increased breast tissue rounds the shoulders forward placing tremendous pressure on the neck and shoulders. The weight of the growing baby places strain on the low back which can result in bladder problems, low back pain and even pain in the buttocks or down the legs.
The nine months of pregnancy brings on many hormonal changes that relax the ligaments that are normally stabilizing the lower back and pelvis. As the pelvis rotates down in front, the muscles of the low back and pelvis become short and tight, causing increased pressure on the joints of the low back producing achey, lower back pain.
At Seaman Chiropractic Center,we have had great success increasing the odds of a woman getting pregnant; once she is, our flexion distraction table which provides a gentle non force correction has a drop down middle segment just for the last months of pregnancy when you are your biggest and don't want to be on your stomach. My massage therapist is excellent at prenatal massage and when we add muscle workouts , you are more active, stronger and your body bounces back much faster after you give birth.
Seaman Chiropractic Center can help make this special time in a woman's life as enjoyable as it was meant to be. Call today 773-545-2233 if you want to get pregnant or if you want your pregnancy to be comfortable and energetic.
"I had tried for 7 years to get pregnant. I went for fertility treatments that did not work. I had pretty much given up the past year or two. This pregnancy is a blessing!I truly believe the chiropractic care has been the reason for this pregnancy."
