The clinic are welcoming a lot of lovely, excited, expectant mothers this Winter and it is lovely.
What isn’t so lovely though is the reason they are here!
Some of these ladies appreciate how beneficial chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies can be for them and others are suffering with some pretty horrible pregnancy-related pain and discomfort.
That is where we come in!
Chiropractic care is absolutely fine to have whilst you are pregnant. It is a completely natural, holistic and drug free way to ensure your body is functioning properly. Regular gentle adjustments and manipulations can ensure a healthier more comfortable pregnancy, labour and birth.
Chiropractic treatment is designed to ultimately keep your spine aligned. The main premise of chiropractic is to allow the body to heal itself by removing any obstructions to the nerves in the spinal column. When our nerves allow the brain and the body to communicate freely, the body is able to work as it was designed. During pregnancy our posture changes hugely – mainly due to the weight of the new bundle which you carry on the front of your body – it doesn’t take a genius to see what this does to our bodies – brings our centre of gravity forward thus, our posture changes with it! During this time your spinal curvature also dramatically changes – this is where chiropractic care can help – with regular adjustments we can ensure that your spine stays as aligned as possible during those life-changing 9 months!
Do you suffer with any pregnancy related sickness or nausea?
Chiropractic care may also help to alleviate some of those nasty symptoms. We can’t guarantee this for all pregnant women, but if the nausea and vomiting is due to a structural problem, an adjustment may help remedy the symptoms!
Our specialists here at the clinic can treat specific pregnancy related complaints such as –
Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)
Lower back pain
… and much more!
By ensuring there are no vertebrae out of place, chiropractic can also help to encourage baby into the correct position for birth. If your lower spine and hips are out of place, your baby could end up laying sideways, posterior or breech – none of which are ideal positions for a straight forward labour!
Regular chiropractic adjustments can also help to shorten the labour process and make it a little easier! If your hips and spine are in correct alignment and if all your nerves to the muscles and organs are free and healthy, this can mean a quicker process, as an alignment issue may delay things. Also, if you were wanting a drug-free, natural birth, chiropractic care may help you accomplish this goal!

We wish you a happy, healthy, pain free pregnancy and delivery!
