Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, non-invasive and drug free discipline. Routine chiropractic care help manage pain in your back, hips, and other joints, it can also help to establish pelvic balance.
During pregnancy, your body ramps up production of certain ligament- and joint-loosening hormones that help to pave the way for baby to make an exit. Without these hormones your baby's head would never be able to fit through your pelvis, but those hormones, combined with a baby belly, can also rapidly lower you center of gravity, leaving you loose-limbed, sway-backed and unusually clumsy.
All of this can do quite a number on your spine. Chiropractic care aims to adjust and realign your spine and pelvis, as well as the ligaments and muscles that surround it, to lessen the pain, improve your posture and mobility, and promote health throughout the body.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth.
