Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy chiropractic care focuses on diagnosing, managing and addressing the causes and symptoms of musculoskeletal pains.  

Pregnancy chiropractic care aims to relax muscles and correct posture, which may reduce neck and back stiffness, relieve the stress on your pelvis and reduce pain and discomfort. 

Chiropractic and Pregnancy

During the nine months of childbearing, our bodies go through significant changes, which can impact our sleep, mood and appetite. But, some of the biggest changes our bodies experience during pregnancy is the expanding belly and the pressure it puts on our spine and joints.

How your body changes during pregnancy

As the baby continues to grow, the added weight and size of the baby can shift the mother’s centre of gravity, move organs and place added stress and weight on the spine, joints and muscles. 

Body changes we may experience during pregnancy include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Leg cramps
  • Sciatica 
  • Varicose veins and haemorrhoids (due to increased blood volume)
  • Dizziness and fainting
  • Water retention (may cause swelling in face, ankles, hands and feet, sometime carpal tunnel syndrome)

Prenatal chiropractic care

As the spine is one of the most affected areas of a woman’s body during pregnancy, prenatal chiropractic care involves modified adjustments aimed to address these imbalances and musculoskeletal symptoms experienced during pregnancy. 

Back pain while pregnant

During pregnancy, the added weight of a growing baby significantly impacts our spine and musculoskeletal system. This may cause the centre of gravity to shift, resulting in postural and biomechanical stress or imbalances. As a result, it is very common for women to experience significant back pain while pregnant. 

Postnatal chiropractic care

Postnatal chiropractic care is an important part of recovering from labor and delivery, and it can help with a variety of issues that new mothers face. After childbirth, it can be common for new mothers to experience decreased mobility, joint stiffness, back pain, hip pain, neck pain and general body stiffness.

Postnatal chiropractic care aims to address these musculoskeletal health concerns and get new mothers’ bodies back on track. 

We also offer paediatric chiropractic care.
