How Chiropractic Adjustments can help you


Pregnancy can be a wonderful experience, but it is not so wonderful if you have pain. Especially spinal or pelvic pain, that could be very easily helped with chiropractic care. It is perfectly ok to get adjustments throughout the whole pregnancy right up to the day. We can modify the techniques not only to get the relief needed around the beautiful growing belly, but also based on your comfort levels. So, if you are pregnant and are feeling uncomfortable in any part of the spine due to the changes happening in your bosom then try chiropractic. I have seen so many pregnant women throughout their pregnancies, and it is a wonderful time, especially when they are in so much less pain, in their pelvis or lower back or even your rib and mid back region.


Why spinal adjustments can help:

Spinal adjustments performed by chiropractors can be tailored to address the specific needs of pregnant women. As the body releases hormones like relaxin to prepare for childbirth, joints become more flexible, potentially leading to misalignments. Chiropractors use precise, low-force techniques to realign the spine, relieving pressure on nerves and promoting optimal functioning of the nervous system.


How Chiropractic Adjustments Support Pelvic Health During Pregnancy:

Pelvic pain is a common complaint during pregnancy, often attributed to the increased weight and pressure on the pelvic region. Chiropractic care can play a crucial role in addressing this discomfort by focusing on the alignment of the pelvic joints. By ensuring proper alignment, chiropractors can enhance pelvic stability and alleviate strain on surrounding muscles, ligaments, and nerves.


Contact a qualified chiropractor:

Chiropractic care for pregnant women is safe when performed by a qualified practitioner. Chiropractors trained in prenatal care understand the unique needs of expectant mothers and utilise specialised tables and support systems to accommodate growing bellies comfortably. Not to mention after the birth and all the carrying and breastfeeding, the stress on the mid back and shoulder and neck is huge, and the constant rocking and placing the go-rowing child on the hip. So many imbalances and stresses can cause spinal pain, and chiropractic can help early motherhood be a much less painful experience.
