Pregnancy Care

With a prime focus on women’s health, our pivotal attention goes towards pregnancy. Being a life-changing experience, it also comes with inevitable health concerns that may cause discomfort and difficulty. Our therapists are professionally trained to combat such aches and pains that are associated with pregnancy such as lower back pain or neck pain.

Why Chiropractic care for pregnancy?

Many factors leading to body pain in pregnancy could be caused by structural, postural and even hormonal changes. With chiropractic care that incorporates soft tissue massage, mobilisation, spinal manipulation and even specific exercises, can help provide relief.

Pelvis alignment is one of the key benefits of chiropractic care as it is very important during pregnancy. Some of the complications related to a misaligned pelvis is intrauterine constraint where the baby does not have optimal space to move freely. It can even make it tough for the baby to move to the desired position to be born. This may affect the woman’s ability for a natural birth.

With chiropractic care by a licensed therapist, pelvic balance can be maintained and restored by massage, postural alignment and even corrective postural exercises.
