Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman's life. There are so many changes going on. The amazing changes that occur as your baby is growing will cause ligaments to relax in order to prepare you for the delivery, and your posture to adapt as the natural increase in weight takes place.
How Chiropractic Benefits The Baby
If your spine is in great health and well aligned then these changes should not cause any problems, however, if this is not the case then you may be experiencing pain and discomfort, and your pregnancy may not prove to be such a wonderful experience.
A misaligned or twisted pelvis will not only be uncomfortable for the mother but may also affect how your baby gets through the birth canal during the birth, due to alterations in the muscles, ligaments and connective tissue around the uterus. Also if the pelvis is twisted your baby's growth and movement may be compromised, affecting their nerve system development. Research shows that the brain of the unborn learns through movement and any constraint reduces the rate of the baby's movement.
What To Expect At Your Chiro Consultation
Just like any person who comes to the practice, we assess the pregnant women to determine if there is a problem we can help them with. We have special chiropractic tables that allow pregnant women, even carrying twins, to lie face down. The chiropractors at Errol Street Chiropractic Centre use gentle techniques to help improve your pelvic and low back function.
