Pregnancy Chiropractic at Chiro Works Bayside

pregnant person with hands on tummyPregnancy is a beautiful journey, but it may also bring discomfort and challenges. Most pregnant women experience lower back pain affecting the sacroiliac joints resulting from a shift in their centre of gravity, hormonal changes like relaxin production, and ligament stretching, which may impact spinal structure and alignment.

Ideally, women should start seeing a chiropractor before pregnancy, but regular visits are essential throughout their journey. The frequency of visits may increase during the last trimester when discomfort intensifies.

Tailored Care for a Healthier Pregnancy

During pregnancy, our approach evolves to ensure more comfort and security. We use special pregnancy pillows to allow the woman to lie on her stomach without pressure. Therapy focuses on gentle stretching, mobility enhancement, and localised adjusting techniques like the Activator® tool.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is beneficial for both mums and their babies. It’s designed to keep her body in the best shape possible and helps ensure she can readily embrace this beautiful journey. Our methods of care help the nervous system to remain healthy, providing an optimal environment for the baby to move around and allow their overall growth and development to progress naturally.

Benefits of Care for Our Mums

Some benefits our mums have seen from chiropractic care during their pregnancies include:

  • Optimal development: ensures the body functions at its best to support the baby’s growth
  • Low back pain relief: relieves common pregnancy-related discomfort
  • Headache relief: chiropractic care helps reduce the headaches many pregnant women experience
  • Stress reduction: chiropractic care helps alleviate stress on the nervous system, benefiting mum and her baby
