Prenatal and Postnatal Chiropractic Care
Guiding you towards a more rewarding pregnancy!
Physiological and endocrinological changes occur during pregnancy. These modifications prepare the body for the task of creating a viable environment for the baby. Biomechanical changes such as your abdomen protruding and changing your center of gravity leads to an increase in the curve of your back, pelvic unbalancing and postural alterations. These changes can put extra strain on the body during pregnancy and, as your body adapts, this can result in misalignment of the spine or joints. Chiropractic care can assist your body in the process and help prepare it for the oncoming alterations.
There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care and pregnancy. Chiropractic care can not only help you throughout the pregnancy, but after delivery as well. Once the baby is born, chiropractic adjustments can help your body recuperate as it slowly returns to “normal”. The repetitive activities you will have with the new baby such as feeding/nursing and carrying positions can affect your body as well.
