Pregnancy Chiropractic

Helping you and your baby live fully alive!

What many people don’t know is that through the regular stressors of everyday life the joints in your spine can become fixated or locked out of position, losing their normal fluid motion. Because our spines are behind us, we tend to forget that they are even there. However, your spine protects the most important anatomical structure for your body… your nervous system. By restoring the proper alignment and motion to the spinalĀ vertebrae, your nervous system will be free from any interference to do what it does best… Maintain your whole body system in perfect working order.

Growing numbers of pregnant women are seeking chiropractic care before, during and after their pregnancy for a number of reasons. During pregnancy, the woman’s body undergoes extreme changes in a short period of time. While a woman’s body is designed to do so, her joints and muscles are put under a lot of stress.

Chiropractic can alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy such as low back pain, pelvic pain, ligament discomfort and upper back pain. Chiropractors are experts in assessing the pregnant woman’s spine and pelvic bones and determining if there are any problems in the joints that may be causing discomfort. Because of its direct influence on the nervous system, chiropractic care can ensure that the nerves supplying the uterineĀ area are freely sending messages, as they should.

Many women seek chiropractic care during pregnancy to ensure the alignment of their pelvis is optimal for labour and delivery. More and more women as well as childbirth practitioners (midwives, obstetricians, doula’s, etc.) are realizing the benefits that chiropractic care can have on proper pelvic alignment for birth.
