How you can find relief from pain during pregnancy

 

PREGNANCY

Is it safe to see a Chiropractor during Pregnancy?

Absolutely! In fact at North Shore Family Chiropractors Chatswood we support women throughout conception, pregnancy, and post-birth. Pregnancy is a time of great change for you and your spine, as the added weight of the baby changes your centre of gravity and puts more pressure on your spine. Many pregnant women complain of back pain and may find that their pelvis and hip alignment is also impacted.

At North Shore Family Chiropractors Chatswood, your Chiropractic Doctor is trained to work with pregnant women in each trimester. Our goal is to provide the most comfortable and rewarding experience possible leading up to your birth.

Common issues during Pregnancy

During your pregnancy your body changes as it nurtures your growing baby. These changes can place strain on your posture and spine. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is an effective and gentle treatment for back pain and pelvic alignment.

While there are many symptoms associated with pregnancy, the aim of chiropractic care is to assist with the most common symptoms including;

  • Low back pain
  • Sciatic pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Posture
  • Pain of the pelvis and groin including pelvic instability

The intensity and presence of these symptoms can be relieved through chiropractic care during pregnancy.
