(NewsUSA) - Being pregnant is the experience of a lifetime for most women. But when it comes to prenatal care, many don't know that a doctor of chiropractic care can help with the aches and pains that come with their changing posture.

"As the body changes during pregnancy, the head, spine and pelvis can become stressed," explains Dr. Lora Tanis, a chiropractor specializing in pediatric and pregnancy care. "Chiropractic care provides gentle, effective adjustments to relieve headaches, neck and back pain -- all without the use of medication."

This is especially important since a UCLA study found that the drug acetaminophen, if taken during pregnancy, has been associated with a higher risk in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Experts now suggest that non-pharmacological approaches, including chiropractic care, can effectively manage pain.

"A postural spinal motion evaluation and treatment can establish balance in a pregnant woman's pelvis and reduce undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments," Tanis says. "In addition, with a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth."

For a healthier pregnancy, more women are discovering that chiropractic care delivers. For more information, visit yes2chiropractic.org.
