Chiropractic for Pregnancy

Chiropractic care aims to adjust and realign your spine and pelvis, as well as the ligaments and muscles that surround it, to lessen pain, improve your posture and mobility, and promote health throughout the body.

You undergo many physical and hormonal changes over the course of your pregnancy, this means a lot of stress and change on your body in a fairly short period of time. Routine chiropractic care supports your body through these changes, helps you adapt and stay healthy and balanced throughout your pregnancy as well as managing the discomfort that is often associated with these changes.

As your baby grows and your centre of gravity shifts, so does your posture and this can mean back, neck, pelvic and hip pain, headaches, and a whole host of other aches and pains that pregnant women commonly report as your body adapts to these changes. Chiropractic is a safe, effective, drug-free health care option to help manage many of these symptoms. Even a pain-free pregnancy is subject to postural and hormonal changes that can benefit from chiropractic care to keep things moving effectively.

A pelvis that’s out of alignment can restrict the amount of space available to your developing baby. Not only can this be uncomfortable for both mom and baby, it can contribute to baby getting into positions that are less than ideal and this can be simply because they are unable to get into the correct positioning due to restrictions and misalignments in and around the pelvis. Chiropractic can help to align your pelvis and allow things to move correctly, this can provide your baby with as much space as possible over the course of your pregnancy and may lead to a faster, easier labour and delivery.

The Webster Technique

There are a special group of chiropractors who receive additional training, education and certification in treating pregnant and paediatric patients through the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association (ICPA).  The Webster technique, taught through the ICPA, is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment.  The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of pelvic imbalance. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth.
