Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Many women experience back pain during pregnancy, often aggravated by increased load in the abdomen. With the softening of ligaments to help the pelvis to allow the baby to be born, chiropractic treatment may benefit the new mum or mum-to-be.

Further problems can also be caused by:

  • Picking up children and putting them on one hip
  • Twisting to put children in car seats
  • Tiredness
  • Emotional stress
