Chiropractic for pregnant women is a safe, non-invasive treatment. Treatment can help reduce the pain associated with pregnancy, prepare the pelvis, muscles and ligaments for birth.
During pregnancy, there are several physiological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. A protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes and postural adaptations can result in pain during pregnancy and affect the preparation of the pelvis for birth. Restriction in the pelvis during pregnancy can sometimes result in intrauterine constraint, preventing the baby from being able to get into the best possible position for delivery.
Chiropractic treatment throughout pregnancy can assist with managing the changes to the body and allow the baby room to develop and move into the best possible position for birth.
Chiropractic services are covered by most private health funds
