One of the most magical aspects of pregnancy is the wonder associated with the trillions of interactions that occur following the union of just two single cells to develop an entirely new, unique human being!
All of these delicate interactions are directed by hormonal changes and chemical responses in the mother and baby. The nervous system co-ordinates and controls all of this process entirely, to ensure that they occur at the appropriate time, in the appropriate amount and in the appropriate order.
So, it makes sense that a well-functioning nervous system is an important factor to the overall health of the mother, and the growth and development of her baby. Think of all the functions your body performs for you every single day… then think about all the functions your body performs in addition, to grow a baby from two cells.
So how does it work, you ask?
Nerve impulses travel from the brain, down the spinal cord and out through the spinal nerves that exit between each vertebral bone that makes up the spine. From there, the nerves branch out further and supply information to the entire body to instruct it how to function.
Dysfunction of the spinal joints may cause interference to your nervous system, reducing your body’s ability to adapt to its changing environment, to regulate its systems, and ultimately heal itself.
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure of the spine and pelvis (may include other joints in the body) and its function according to the nervous system, and how that relationship impacts an individual’s health.
A well-functioning nervous system promotes a well pregnancy for mother and baby.
