Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Backache is some of the most widely recognised painful side-effects of pregnancy. Chiropractic care can be of great help during that time.

Happy pregnant ladyThe hormone progesterone causes your ligaments and joints to slacken to facilitate the passage of the baby through the pelvis. This can makes the joints weaker and  can, in an already unstable spine, aggravate spinal problems.

Later, this is aggravated by the changes to your balance and the stresses made on your spine by your growing tummy.

Chiropractors are trained in adjusting the spines of pregnant women and our clinics are equipped  with special equipment for the pregnant figure. It is also very safe for both mother and baby.

There is even a possibility that the more flexible state of your joints provides an opportunity for easier correction of chronic spinal problems.
