Chiropractic in Pregnancy

Postural changes of pregnancy can have discerning effects on many areas of a woman’s body. As the baby grows, the uterus expands and the pelvis shifts to help keep the centre of gravity stable. The pubic bone and tailbone move backward and this increases the arch in the woman’s lower back. To compensate for these postural alterations, specific muscle groups must work harder to support the body in the upright position and have the strength to accommodate the growth of the baby. Over time, these muscles shorten and become very tight. These additional stresses can lead to discomfort and difficulty with performing routine daily activities. Nurturing a strong, healthy spine and pelvis will allow the baby to grow efficiently without any discomfort to the mum to be and as such more and more women are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy. Chiropractic care in pregnancy is a safe and gentle way to promote comfort and minimise back pain during the pregnancy and to support the natural birthing process. Chiropractic adjustments are very specific and assist in relieving these stresses in the spine, thereby restoring balance to the spine and pelvis area. Some of the benefits of chiropractic care in pregnancy is to promote proper posture while sitting, sleeping, driving or walking; relieve pain in pelvis, hips, back, ribs, neck and joints; prevent or eliminate sciatica and improve proper pre-birthing position.
