Pregnancy is a remarkable time of change, and growth. It’s also a period that can present it’s own unique challenges.
As the body changes to accommodate a growing baby, the mechanical and hormonal shifts that occur during pregnancy can lead to challenges. Pregnancy can particularly impact the low back, pelvis, and ligaments. Other symptoms may include back pain, indigestion, and sciatica.
Many women recognise pregnancy as a time to focus on natural health and avoid medication or other substances while baby is growing and developing. For this reason, many women may receive chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Chiropractors are skillful at assessing joint motion and function. Restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system may make pregnancy a more comfortable journey.
Gentle blocking procedures, and other Chiropractic techniques can be tailored to each stage of pregnancy to assist with healthy function throughout this time and to prepare the body for birthing.
We are experienced in the gentle care of women during all stages of pregnancy.
