"As an expectant mother's body changes during pregnancy, regular adjustments provide proper alignment, ensuring optimal function of the nervous system."
BOSTON, MA, May 16, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Chiropractic care can be an essential natural treatment helping women with their aches and pains that occur during pregnancy. According to Dr. Austrager, regular treatments relieve pain and help a woman's body prepare for childbirth. Chiropractic care may also help the body recover more quickly, both physically and mentally, following birth.
Treatments are gentle and free from any medications that could harm the developing child. The Framingham practice also services other Metrowest Massachusetts communities, including Natick, Southborough, Ashland and Sudbury.
Dr. Howard Austrager, a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist, announced that his practice offers chiropractic care for pregnancy pain without conventional twisting, bending, cracking or popping in uncomfortable positions. Treatments include gentle adjustments using minimal pressure and therapeutic pregnancy massage techniques.
"During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes profound physical changes," said Dr. Austrager. "While this is an exciting time, it can also be quite painful and highly stressful. Our goal is to help women enjoy these transformative nine months by naturally and comfortably lowering stress levels, relieving pelvic and back pain and preparing the body for childbirth." Dr. Austrager is an Advanced Rated Activator Methods practitioner and remains current on research about chiropractic care and pregnancy development.
As the uterus expands, many woman experience back pain or aches in their abdomen, groin area and thighs. The pressure of the baby's head, increased weight and loosening joints can also cause pain. Some women may experience a condition known as sciatica, which occurs when the uterus places pressures on the sciatic nerve, causing a radiating pain the lower back, legs and buttocks.
Dr. Austrager uses the Activator Technique and other gentle spinal adjustments to help relieve pain and prepare the body for childbirth. Activator technique is a gentle, low-force technique that does not involve any popping or cracking. The treatment can be performed while expectant mothers are standing, sitting or lying down on our special pregnancy table.
"The Activator Technique allows me to precisely identify the location of pain and administer a precise and gentle correction," said Dr. Austrager. "It's truly amazing in managing pregnancy pain."
According to Dr. Austrager, spinal adjustments are essential not only for managing back pain, but also for ensuring proper alignment of the spine. "When the body is out of alignment, the nervous system is unable to properly send and receive messages," said Dr. Austrager. "As an expectant mother's body changes during pregnancy, regular adjustments provide proper alignment, ensuring optimal function of the nervous system. This lessens pain during childbirth and helps the body heal faster following the birth."
Dr. Austrager says that proper alignment of the spine and pelvis can help lessen common pregnancy complaints, such as fatigue, sleep problems and indigestion. Carpal tunnel syndrome, a common pregnancy ailment, responds very well to chiropractic care. The clinic also offers pregnancy massage. This therapeutic treatment, administered by a licensed massaged therapist, helps the musculoskeletal system relax and release tension. Massage revitalizes the flow of fresh, oxygenated blood, which flushes toxins from muscles while bringing essential healing nutrients. Massage also increases the level of endorphins, natural painkillers that improve mood and emotional outlook. " Massage naturally complements our chiropractic treatments," said Dr. Austrager. "Together with nutrition counseling and low-impact exercise like pre-natal yoga or daily walking, we can help prepare the body for a healthy pregnancy and natural childbirth."
