Pregnancy Chiropractor in Lake View Chicago: Dr. Jason Godo, D.C. offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When your body goes through the various stages and trials of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to extreme amounts of stress. After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to bear the growing weight of another person over a short time frame of just nine months. The center of gravity shifts forward and substantial weight gain adds stress to the spine of the expecting mother. This stress frequently causes lower back pain, headaches and migraines, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms that can wreak havoc on your quality of life.
Chiropractic for a Healthier and Happier Pregnancy
Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during pregnancy, caused primarily by the weight that must be balanced by an overworked spine and support system. Furthermore, how smooth and uncomplicated your delivery is has a lot to do with the state of your body. A body that is stressed, misaligned and worn out can result in complications during delivery – resulting in anything from a painful delivery to problems with positioning the baby correctly.
A study performed by the American Medical Association Board of Trustees concluded that women who received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver with far more comfort. Plus, the need for painkillers was also reduced by half in several patients in another well-known study.
My body soaks up stress like a sponge and then shakes it about like a wet dog to any unaffected parts. I had success with an applied kinesiologist in Ohio, and felt this was important to continue in Chicago. Thus, I was elated when I found Dr. Godo. The Zyto Scan (non-evasive, you put your hand on a sensor and it scans you) hides nothing, so if I’m stressed out or something is causing issues, Dr. Godo can see it clear as a bell and help. He does adjustments and recommends supplements if needed. However, he has given me practical strategies to do to help keep my body healthy. In fact, most of his recommendations for me are lifestyle changes that do not cost a dime. Issues he has helped me with are headaches (amazing relief for the ones that weren’t associated with jaw clenching), women issues, tightness in my right side, food issues, and stress. Other perks…evening hours and everyone that works there is super friendly.
