How does chiropractic help give pregnancy back pain relief?

During pregnancy, there are several physiological and hormonal changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints:


Pelvic changes


Protruding abdomen and increased back curve


Postural adaptations

Establishing pelvic balance and spinal alignment is the major key chiropractic care during pregnancy.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Many women seek chiropractic care to relieve neck or back pain that can result from weight gain and altered biomechanics during pregnancy. But even if you’re not in pain, you can benefit from visiting a chiropractor

Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy, other than providing back pain relief include:


Maintaining a healthier pregnancy


Reducing the time of labour and delivery


Controlling symptoms of nausea


Relieving neck pain and headaches

When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth.

The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
