Pregnancy and BabiesChiropractic for Pregnancy

The female body undergoes major postural and hormonal changes during and after pregnancy. Chiropractic care may help to relieve any accompanied aches and pains and make for an easier transition from pregnancy to motherhood. Some women are understandably  afraid to do anything strenuous during their pregnancy, and the idea of receiving chiropractic can be daunting, however let me assure you, as long as you have made your chiropractor aware that you are pregnant, chiropractic care is safe and may be very beneficial during this physically stressful period.

During pregnancy many physiological and hormonal changes take place in the body. Fluctuations in hormones cause a loosening of ligaments and joints throughout the body, which increases the risk of sprains and strains. The breasts and internal structures increase in size and with an ever expanding tummy, the pelvis starts to gradually tilt causing an increase in the curvature of the back, resulting in pubic and lower back pain.
