Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy
Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Chiropractic care for pregnant women is an excellent way to reduce pregnancy-related back pain, pelvic pain, headache and heartburn. It also helps prevent the development of conditions like sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome. We have found that chiropractic adjustments help with a variety of pregnancy-related complaints including but not limited to:
- pain in the low back or pelvis
- leg cramps at night
- shortness of breath (dyspnea)
- difficulty sleeping (insomnia)
What is a chiropractor and what do they do?
Chiropractors are a type of healthcare professional that focuses on the health and wellness of your spine. The goal of chiropractic adjustments is to improve the range of motion in your body, reduce pain, and promote healing. There are many benefits to receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy including increased blood flow and circulation which can help keep you more comfortable!
In our prenatal chiropractic care in the Mona Vale and Northern Beaches area, we adjust the spine to relieve pressure on spinal nerves. This helps improve nerve function and decrease pain anywhere in your body! We also use therapeutic exercises during pregnancy to help with common complaints like low back or pelvic pain (sciatica), leg cramps at night and poor posture.
