Why would you seek chiropractic care when pregnant?
Women will seek chiropractic treatment for many reasons whilst pregnant. During pregnancy, there are several physiological changes that occur in the body. Some of these changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints and also may cause pain or discomfit for example: Protruding abdomen and increased back curve, Pelvic changes, Postural adaptations, Making sure that the pelvis is balanced and aligned is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. Stress experienced by the mother can also effect the body and in turn the baby. From 8 weeks of pregnancy babies can be seen to be responding to mothers stress level.
