Women during pregnancy regularly seek chiropractic care. Common reasons for pregnant mums-to-be visit include:
- Lower back pain
- Pelvic pain
- Pubic pain
- Neck pain
- Leg pain
- Chest pain
Our chiropractors utilise gentle and specific techniques to help alleviate pain and discomfort during pregnancy. We aim to release tension and help balance the pelvis and spine allowing the best environment for the baby during development and delivery.
After birth ligaments begin tighten as hormone levels start to return to normal, which increases the chances of misalignments of the spine and pelvis. Gentle adjustments and exercises are used to return the spine and pelvis back to normal working function.
Studies have shown that the addition of chiropractic care to standard obstetric care gives significant benefits regarding low back and pelvic girdle pain .
