New research demonstrates that pregnant women who received chiropractic care had a greater ability to relax their pelvic floor muscles at rest. Not only does chiropractic treatment provide relief of back and pelvic pain, it may help them have a natural vaginal delivery.
"For a woman in labor, the ability to relax pelvic floor muscles (as well as contract them) to allow the baby to move through the birth canal is incredibly important, especially as the baby crowns. If the woman can’t relax these muscles as the baby moves through, she will tire more quickly and may require more interventions to assist the birthing process . Muscles that cannot relax could also interfere with a birth progressing without interference. In an ideal situation, strong pelvic floor muscles with an ability to relax would better prepare a mother for a natural, vaginal birth."
