At different stages in our lives our bodies can need a little extra care and attention. Pregnancy causes many changes to our body and these can in turn put extra stress on your body.
When you come in for a chiropractic assessment we will assess your entire body with a special focus on your pelvis, pubic symphysis and the soft tissue structures around your uterus.
As your baby grows the structures around your uterus can be stressed in ways they haven’t experienced before.
During pregnancy we will change some of the techniques and ways we adjust you to ensure you and your growing baby are comfortable and safe.
Common presentations in pregnancy
- Pelvic or Pubic Symphysis pain
- Mid back pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Postural changes
- Uncomfortable sleeping
- Numbness and tingling in hands
If you know someone struggling with any of the above presentations then please refer them in for a pregnancy assessment. During this time we will be able to assess and discuss how chiropractic may be able to help you have a more comfortable pregnancy and birth.
