Pregnancy Chiropractic at Lifetime Chiro

Ensuring our mums-to-be are healthy and pain-free during pregnancy is very important. Chiropractic is gentle, all natural care that may help mum’s body function properly and keep her more comfortable.

Considering Chiropractic

The chances of going through an entire pregnancy without complaints of aches and pains is slim. Most women will get quite sore. Chiropractic care may ease some pain and discomfort.

Around weeks 20-24, the round ligaments at the front of the pelvis start to become unstable. This may cause sacroiliac joint pain, so adjustment is necessary. Afterwards, mum is usually less stressed, which is better for her and the baby. Keeping everything in balance helps throughout the pregnancy.

Chiropractic adjustment may ensure everything is properly aligned and functioning without restrictions. Only bony ligament systems and muscular structures of the pelvis are worked on. The baby is not touched at any point.

How it May Help

  1. Reduces uterine restrictions — When a mum’s ligaments relax, it can allow the baby to be in the right position when she’s moving around. Sometimes too much stress is placed on the ligaments, preventing the baby from moving. Adjustment can reduce stress and allow the baby to move.
  2. Reduces lower back pain — The extra weight mums have to carry can cause pain. Chiropractic care may correct the posture of the spine as the baby grows, and prevent discomfort. Other benefits may be relief from headaches, back, chest and neck pain, sciatica and tight hip muscles.
  3. May help with recovery after birth — Studies show that regular adjustments, prior to delivery, may help the body recover faster. Proper alignment stimulates the nervous system, helping it remain functional, balanced and healthy.
