Chiropractic care is possible and safe throughout all stages of pregnancy.
As you can imagine pregnancy can put a lot of stress on the mother’s spine and body. Her centre of gravity shifts forward so that the low back can take a lot of strain. Not only is the weight increased for her body to carry but hormonal changes begin to relax the supporting tissues of the spine which may make the spine and nervous system vulnerable to injury.
Chiropractic can help to maintain the stability of your pelvis and balance of pelvic muscles, this in turn may help you to have an easier, less painful and less traumatic delivery for both mother and child.
Chiropractic adjusting techniques are adapted to suit the stage of pregnancy. At Hands on Health we have a special table which can fit a pregnant tummy in to minimize the strain on Mum
