Pregnancy is a time of great change in a woman's body. Between hormonal changes and shifts in body weight, many pregnant women don't even recognize the behavior of their own bodies during pregnancy.
Our chiropractic care can help our pregnant patients start to feel more like themselves while allowing them to be more comfortable. At Body Works Health and Wellness in Chicago, Chiropractor Dr. Z has helped pregnant women get through this challenging and exciting time. We can help you feel better, avoid injury and even better position your baby for labor.
Many of the changes that take place in your body during pregnancy are meant to prepare you for childbirth. Other changes that take place are simply a natural consequence of growing a baby in your uterus.
For example, the ligaments in your pelvis will begin to loosen during this time. This allows you to push your baby through the birth canal. At the same time, your center of gravity will shift forward as the baby inside you begins to gain weight. This shift in weight and body structure can cause lower back pain, shoulder pain and neck pain, and can also make it easier for you to fall and become injured.
You may even get pain of the sciatic nerve during pregnancy. In addition, during pregnancy you may experience anxiety about the coming the birth, the arrival of the baby and your health in general.

What a fantastic place to go for an adjustment or a massage. The facilities are extremely clean and new. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. Dr. Z is a great chiropractor with an extensive knowledge of what ails me. He has helped me get rid of my lower back pain and really assisted with my herniated discs in my neck. Iliana is a great massage therapist, and is able to work out knots no other therapist has been able to before. I highly recommend this place for any body part that needs fixing.
