I’m pregnant and in pain: can a chiropractor help?
Pregnancy brings many life changes, including aches of pain. As many as half of all pregnant women experience back pain at some stage of their pregnancy. If you’re pregnant and dealing with backache, you’ll be glad to know chiropractic care may be able to provide welcome relief and even improve your experience of pregnancy.
Chiropractic in pregnancy: is it safe?
If you’re pregnant and considering chiropractic care, you may have concerns about safety. A chiropractor uses particular techniques to maintain and adjust the joints of your spine, helping to relieve stress on your spinal nerve and improve your overall health and wellbeing. Chiropractic care is largely safe during pregnancy, but if you have moderate to severe toxaemia, have vaginal bleeding, placental abruption or have an ectopic pregnancy, it’s wise to consult your doctor before seeing a chiropractor. Your chiropractor will work with you to ensure that you and your baby stay safe and comfortable during the session.
The benefits of chiropractic care in pregnancy
Pregnancy brings many physical and hormonal changes. You might find it more difficult to stay comfortable in your established posture or sleep position, and this could lead to joint damage or spinal misalignment. Additionally, with changes to the size and shape of your pelvis, and your spinal curve, your back will be under a lot more stress than normal. A chiropractor may be able to help you avoid any lasting back or hip pain. Maintaining your joint health with a chiropractor may help to offset the changes pregnancy brings and will ensure a more positive experience.
