A question often asked of chiropractors:-
Is chiropractic care "safe" during pregnancy?
The answer is an emphatic - YES!

Pregnancy Chiropractor Care for People in Evandale, Norwood and St Peters

During pregnancy it is not uncommon for the expectant mother to experience pain and discomfort as her body adapts to the many changes taking place as a result of the growing child within her. These not only include the many hormonal changes but also biomechanical changes as the body deals with the extra weight and the inevitable changes in posture.

Such changes can affect the expectant mother's spine and nervous system, which may in turn result in compromises to nerves, joints, connective tissue, ligaments, posture and stability.

Common questions about Pregnancy and Chiropactor care

Is there a time during pregnancy when spinal adjustments should stop?
Absolutely NOT! Many of our patients even receive chiropractic care up to and during labour to facilitate an easier delivery.

Should I see a chiropractor only if I have experienced pain whilst pregnant?
No! Regular spinal checks are an important part of maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system to ensure the expectant mum is healthy as possible. Remember, your body is changing in many ways and that can place a great deal of stress on your spine and nervous system. So rather than wait for problems to arise, we recommend a regular check up at our clinic for all of our pregnant patients.

Why hasn't my obstetrician recommended chiropractic?
A common myth exists amongst the obstetrical community that chiropractic has no role to play during a pregnancy. As a result, over the years many women have endured unnecessary suffering during their pregnancies and subsequent births.

The truth of the matter is that once an obstetrician truly understands the potential of chiropractic in maintaining optimal health of the expectant mother they often become very supportive of chiropractic care for their patients. In fact a number of our patients visit our clinic as a result of direct referrals from their obstetrician and or midwife.
