PREGNANCY & CHIROPRACTIC
We’re here to help your body adapt and stay pain free throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
Pregnancy puts a lot of pressure on your body - more specifically your lumbar spine and pelvis. Hormones released create joint laxity and your centre of gravity shifts with the growing weight of your baby. This makes you more susceptible to injury - it may cause sprains/strains and potentially nerve interference that can result in sciatica. This can carry over in to the 4th trimester and the first few years of life, with the increased weight of carrying your baby; the strain on your mid back through feeding (whether it’s breastfed or bottle fed); and by constant bending over in to bassinets/cots etc.
It can cause symptoms that Chiropractic care may be able to help with:
Lower back pain
Groin and hip pain
Chiropractic care tailored for pregnancy is gentle and focuses on realigning the spine and pelvis to reduce the stress on the joints, ligaments, and muscles. A full spinal assessment is undertaken and your biomechanics are adjusted so your body is better equipped.
