Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a special time and a unique experience to each woman.
In nine months two cells turn into 3 trillion and you create life. This means every day there are changes to the woman’s body as well as the baby’s.
During this time of intense physical and emotional change it is essential to look after yourself. You should continue to be active and mobile, eat healthily, rest, and looking after your spine.
There is no time in your life when getting regular chiropractic treatment is more important than during pregnancy.
Chiropractic can help mothers with:
- Back pain and discomfort
- Improve flexibility and mobility
- Increase energy
- Decrease stress
- Help achieve deeper, more restful sleep
- Promote a strong immune system and healthier baby
What does the chiropractor do?
First the chiropractor will give you an in-depth health assessment, checking you from head to toe using special equipment that keeps you comfortable and safe at any stage of your pregnancy. This is followed by a report with your results and recommendations. The chiropractor can also advise exercises and postures that promote the optimum position of your baby.
What does the research say?
Most women experience lower back pain during pregnancy, having chiropractic treatment in combination with standard obstetric care has been shown to be more powerful in alleviating pain than obstetric care alone. Women receiving chiropractic care also reported less pain during labour.
