What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care during pregnancy?
Chiropractic therapy is a non-invasive technique to realign joints of the body to reduce spinal nerve stress and optimise health and wellbeing. In other words, a “healthy spine = healthy nervous system = healthy body working at its full potential.”
The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. During pregnancy, the mother experiences physiological and hormonal changes as it prepares for the developing baby. Therefore, caring for the spine grows in importance during pregnancy, particularly the pelvis and spine.
During pregnancy, when your baby grows and becomes heavier, the centre of gravity shifts and your posture changes. As your abdomen protrudes the curve in your back increases, along with pelvic alignment changes.
