Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps women to be as healthy as they can be during pregnancy.
Having your spine checked by a chiropractor ensures that your pelvis is sitting correctly to allow optimum room for your baby to grow and move.
Techniques will be modified to accommodate for your growing belly. Often Chiropractors will have drop out pieces on their table to accommodate the belly allowing the women to lie prone.
Research shows that correct alignment of the pelvis and the spine contributes to a more forward labour with lesspain and trauma for mother and child. In the US two thirds of pregnant women report low back pain. Studies on back aches have discovered that over 50% of all women complain of lower back pain during pregnancy, with the sacroiliac joint of the pelvis being most commonly affected.
