LENGTH OF LABOR TIME
Does chiropractic care ACTUALLY shorten labor time?
That's a great question! My answer is PROBABLY!
During labor your sacrum, the triangular bone at the base of your spine, needs to be able to rock back when the fetal head is going past it. If it cannot, due to a subluxation in your spine, then the head cannot descend. Which can cause a longer labor. SO if you are regularly adjusted during your pregnancy then your sacrum is less likely to be stuck in a non-moving position. THIS is why I can say that chiropractic care can shorten labor time. Getting regular adjustments throughout your pregnancy is such a wonderful way to reduce discomfort, potentially shorten labor time, and have regular check in points with someone educated in prenatal care to ask your questions.
