Chiropractic & Pregnancy
Pregnancy causes massive change in the hormones and physical appearance of the body. Pregnancy hormones change the tone of the ligaments in the body and loosen them in preparation for childbirth. There is also significant change in the body's positioning and movement patterns as a result of the growing baby.
As a result of all this change in structure and hormones, musculoskeletal pain is very common in pregnant women especially low back pain.
Many women seek out chiropractic to help but are concerned that they can not be treated whilst pregnant, however we can treat pregnant patients. We adapt our techniques to suit mother and baby.
