Chiropractic Care for Fertility, Pregnancy and Afterward: Natural Care Blog

Welcome to my blog. I recently became a mum for the first time to a beautiful baby girl, but it wasn't an easy process. I spent a lot of money on fertility treatments and was even beginning to consider IVF, when I finally sought the help of a chiropractor. Whether it moved organs, relaxed me or did something I can't understand, I was pregnant two weeks later. I want other women to know about the amazing potential of chiropractic care and how it can help with fertility, pregnancy back pain and even your life as a mum toting around a heavy baby or toddler. I will post other natural care articles as well. Enjoy in good health.

How To Become A Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is an alternative form of medicine that aims at treating some of the mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the back and the lower back. A lot of people due to day to day activities get mildly or severely injured due to backlash or other mechanical restraints that cause pain and sometimes makes the person unable to move the damaged part of their body. Part of this problem is solved through chiropractic care, a form of physical therapy. Those who practice chiropractic care are called chiropractors, and to become one, they have had to go through several stages of higher education and practice. Here is how you become a chiropractor:

The Education A Chiropractor Has To Go Through

Many believe that a chiropractor does not go through a long or complicated higher education. In fact, that is not true. Chiropractors have to go through pre-med school to gain extensive knowledge of the sciences such as biology, physics, chemistry and psychology. After several years of pre-med, they have to complete a specific program to chiropractors that includes anatomy, chiropractic principles, biochemistry, spinal anatomy, pathology, clinical orthopedics, pediatrics, dermatology, ethics and jurisprudence.

In their final year, future chiropractors have to complete a clinical internship, under a professional chiropractor, and do rotations in a hospital or clinic. Sometimes, chiropractors also complete additional training and certification for fields such as nutrition, sports medicine, acupuncture etc.

The License Of A Chiropractor

It is necessary for a chiropractor to have a license and he or she obtains it by sitting a commission. After being evaluated, they receive their license and are able to practice their profession. Chiropractors should also undertake continued professional development on a yearly basis so that they can maintain their license and registration.

The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care

There are a lot of benefits to chiropractic, and it mostly involves reducing muscle, ligament and soft tissue pain by hands-on treatment. They manipulate the deep tissue by putting pressure on it to relieve the acute pain in parts of your body such as the neck or lower back. Some research has shown that chiropractors help with headaches.

Other than acute pain, which is a pain caused usually by whiplash, from moving furniture or lifting heavy objects, chiropractors also treat chronic pain. Chronic pain is a reoccurring pain that usually lasts more than a couple of months. It does not go away on its own as acute pain does and it has deeper physiological causes. Most chiropractors also help with posture and body alignment.
