Dr. Nelson Explains How Chiropractic Care Helps in Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy has many benefits
Dr. Nelson talks with KOLO Channel 8’s Mom’s Everyday about how chiropractic care can help pregnant women by relieving pain and getting baby in the ideal position for delivery. Regular chiropractic care through pregnancy helps ease pains brought on by increased hormones in the body and also helps decrease labor times and possible interventions during delivery.
Caring for pregnant moms, babies and children is a specialized skill, one that Dr. Nelson has spent years honing. She is the only chiropractor in northern Nevada who is Board Certified by The Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics of the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice (ACFP). They have been designated with the CACCP credentials and proudly remain a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She is also certified in Webster’s Technique through the ICP.
Dr. Nelson’s interview with Annie Woods of Mom’s Everyday
Annie Woods: Hi, I’m Annie Woods for Mom’s Everyday and I’m here with Dr. Nelson at Northern Nevada Chiropractic. Thanks so much for having us, Doctor.
Dr. Nelson: Thanks for being here.
Annie Woods: Lets talk about how chiropractic care can really help with prenatal care.
Dr. Nelson: So pregnant women have Relaxin and Progesterone flowing through the body, which creates a little bit of laxity in the ligaments and the joints. With that comes instability, so it causes some aches and pains. Regular care through pregnancy helps ease those pains and it also helps decrease labor times and possible interventions during delivery.
Annie Woods: That’s fantastic, women will love that. And you also have a special certification in this?
Dr. Nelson: I do. So I’m Websters Certified which is very specific to the pelvic area and that’s what affects pregnant women most during the labor period. I’m also certified through the ICPA to work with pregnant women and babies.
Annie Woods: Fantastic. Well thank you so much, Doctor, for all this great information, it’s going to be very helpful for a lot of pregnant women out there.
