Pregnancy & Post Pregnancy Chiropractic

During Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

During pregnancy, your body undergoes several physiological and hormonal changes in preparation for creating a suitable environment for your baby’s development.

Many women experience lower back pain, hip pain or pubic symphysis pain during pregnancy.

The protruding abdomen, increase in the lower back curvature, pelvic changes and postural adaptations are contributing stress in the pelvis balance and spinal alignment.

It is important to establish pelvic balance and alignment during pregnancy – A misaligned pelvis may become a problem and potentially make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the ability to have a natural and non-invasive birth.

 

Post-Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

During the late 2nd and 3rd trimester, high hormone levels soften and relax the ligament around the pelvis to allow stretch and opening for the birth of the baby.

Research shows that the ligaments begin to re-tighten at approximately 8 weeks after giving birth while some taking up to a year or more.

It is highly recommended for women to visit a chiropractor after birth before the pelvis is tightened up with pelvis imbalance and spinal misalignment.

It is very common for women to complain of life-altering back problem since the birth of their child.

Besides, you need your body in optimal shape to make parenthood an easier job.
