Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy
During pregnancy there are several physiological and endocrinogical changes in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. When you add the increase in weight, shift in centre of gravity and the change in biometrics, this is due to all the weight being out in front, it is no wonder that pregnant women are prone to back pain.
Lower back pain is the most common reason that pregnant women seek Chiropractic care. Headaches and migranes, mainly caused by subluxations in the cervical spine or neck, can also be treated by Chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care also has the following benefits during pregnancy:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy.
- Controlling symptoms of nausea.
- Reducing the time of labour and delivery.
- Relieving back, neck and joint pain.
- Can help prevent a caesarean delivery.
Many of pregnancy’s ‘side effects’ can be reduced with Chiropractic care such as lower back pain, leg cramps, mid-back pain, neck pain, headaches, and even nausea.
