Chiropractic and Pregnancy

 

Is Chiropractic safe for pregnant women?

The answer is yes! Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints in pregnancy with over half of pregnant women experiencing it at some point during their term.  The physical changes that a woman goes through during pregnancy can put enormous pressure on the spine and pelvis causing day to day activities, including sleeping, to be incredibly uncomfortable.

Not only is Chiropractic treatment safe but research tells us that women who have regular Chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies suffer less back and neck pain, have generally shorter, easier and more comfortable birth processes and tend to recover faster.

TIPS TO HELP RELIEVE BACK PAIN WHILE EXPECTING:

  • Maintain regular Chiropractic care, even if you are not in pain.
  •  Place a pillow between your knees and sleep on your side to relieve stress on your lower back.
  • Wear flat or low-heeled shoes.
  • Pay extra attention to workplace ergonomics; use a cushion for your back if necessary to add extra support and use a small stool or foot rest to take the strain off your legs and back.
  • Exercise to keep your back muscles strong and better able to support your changing body.  Walking swimming and stationary cycling are excellent low impact choices during pregnancy.
