Why use a chiropractor during pregnancy?

During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many physical and hormonal changes. These can have a big impact on your posture and how comfortable you are. As your pregnancy progresses, your body will also begin to prepare for labour which can cause further aches and pains in your hips, buttock and back.

Regular visits to a chiropractor can help with these and also prepare your pelvis and spine for labour.

What can a chiropractor treat in pregnancy?

A chiropractor can help provide relief from a number of different conditions that pregnant women may experience. These include:

  • Joint pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Difficulty walking
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • Back pain
  • Bad posture

What are the benefits of chiropractic care in pregnancy?

As well as helping relieve aches and pains, it can:

  • Reduce nausea
  • Provide relief from discomfort
  • Loosen up joints and reduce any tension in your muscles
  • Prevent a misaligned pelvis
  • Help the developing baby
  • Reduce the need for an invasive birth

Is chiropractic treatment safe during pregnancy?

Chiropractic techniques focus on spinal adjustments and massage therapy to help with misaligned joints. There are no drugs or surgery involved which means it’s completely safe for before, during and after pregnancy.

It’s best described as a physical therapy that reduces joint, nerve and muscle stress and promotes health around the body.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Our chiropractors have been trained to treat women who are pregnant. Our tables are able to accommodate you and we also have a range of accessories and pillows to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible. Our techniques will also not put pressure on the abdomen.
