How Chiropractic Helps When Pregnant

Pregnancy Chiropractor Sydney

Seeking advice from a chiropractor for care while pregnant can be a sensible option, especially if you are experiencing symptoms such as lower back pain, sciatica, shallow breathing, or other postural issues.

The spine — including your posture — is our bread and butter! It’s what we focus on, and chiropractors have at least five years of intensive University education, so we intimately know the spine, its assessment, and its treatment. So, let’s look at some ways chiropractors help during pregnancy.

Back Pain When Pregnant

Chiropractors often help alleviate lower back pain experienced during pregnancy. If you’re experiencing back pain when pregnant, pubic bone pain, tension, or shallow breathing due to posture changes, these symptoms can be assessed.

Get in touch with the team at TherapyWorks today to check if we can improve your alignment and posture for a more comfortable pregnancy experience.

Sciatica When Pregnant

Sciatica, or nerve pain, often occurs during pregnancy. This is due to irritation of your sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in our bodies. It extends from the lower back, through the pelvis, and down the leg.

Extra tension or pressure experienced as a result of your growing baby often causes sciatica.

As your baby grows, extra pressure is placed on the sciatic nerve, which can cause pain, numbness, or tingling sensations in your lower back, hips, and down your legs.

However, we can often help to reduce and better manage these symptoms, resulting in a more comfortable pregnancy experience for you.

By addressing the underlying cause of sciatica – often postural misalignments – chiropractors may help ease muscle tension, improve nerve function, and improve overall alignment.

Posture and Pregnancy

It’s very common for pregnancy, and later on parenthood, to change your posture. And not in a positive way, as postural imbalances often lead to aches, pains and other musculoskeletal symptoms.

As your body changes, the increased weight tends to round your shoulders,  tilt your head forward, and really puts out your posture!

It can make looking down at a computer screen, driving a car and even exercising that much more challenging.

The good news is the specific exercise and gentle chiropractic care help to:

  • relive excess pressure and tension
  • improve range of motion
  • boost flexibility
  • improve alignment thereby alleviating painful symptoms.

Get in touch with our team today to learn more about the benefit of chiropractic care when pregnant, and for local treatment to address a range of painful conditions.

Commonly Asked Questions About Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Pregnancy has a profound impact on the alignment of your spine and pelvis.

This often results in misalignments that can cause discomfort and pain….or just feeling that your posture isn’t right.

In fact getting your alignment checked before conceiving is a great idea. Getting aligned throughout your pregnancy creates a great feeling of a more comfortable and balanced body.

A regular alignment correction is usually required for most women.

Some women have easy pregnancies whereas others have difficult pregnancies. So the frequency of sessions is different for every patient.

Getting aligned or adjusted is different for every patient.

My goal is to deliver the most gentle adjustment possible and there should be no discomfort getting treated. In fact most patients feel great after their session.

I have aligned pregnant patients for 35 years with no problems. Each patient is treated individually and care is taken to get the best results.
