Chiropractic Care in Pregnancy

Chiropractic Care in Pregnancy

Did you know that Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help in many different ways.

Chiropractic Care in Pregnancy

Regular chiropractic care can also provide a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery for both mother and baby. We got the chance to catch up with Dan from Murray Chiropractic in Toowoomba to talk about these benefits and here is what he had to say:

“Pregnancy is a time of change for everyone. During a babies development mum may experience a variety of changes such as

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Mood swings
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Increased urination
  • Dietary requirements & appetite
  • Pelvic & spinal posture
  • Fluid retention
  • Walking, standing & sleeping posture
  • Pelvic, spine and abdominal pain
  • Emotional stress levels

The body is designed to self-regulate but sometimes mums need a little help to both prepare and manage this time of change. Chiropractic helps mums restore and maintain function by:

  • Activating the brain & nerves
  • Improving pelvic stability
  • Improving blood flow
  • Reducing fluid retention
  • Reducing postural stress
  • Giving postural advice
  • Dietary requirements & appetite
  • Regularly checking your function
  • Reducing pain without medication
  • Improving sleep
  • Reducing emotional stress

Chiropractic care can help throughout all stages of change

  • Before Pregnancy (detect problems early, prepare the body for the changes ahead)
  • During Pregnancy (helps to prevent & manage symptoms, relaxes the pelvic ligaments for pregnancy)
  • After Pregnancy (helps return mum’s body get back to normal, helps kids develop their brain and nerves)

Please speak to your health practitioner to discuss any of the above information prior to booking in with a chiropractor to ensure this methods is safe for your. Be sure to research Chiropractors and ensure you seek someone experienced in this area to ensure the correct technique.
