Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when they’re carrying a child.
However, the reality is that this doesn't have to be the case. Our Team of Family Chiropractors at Adelaide Family Chiropractic have helped many women in the Woodcroft and Morphett Vale Region experience a healthy and happy pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can often help make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating the strain placed on the spine and pelvis caused by the growing fetus, thus creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
There are other advantages of engaging in chiropractic during pregnancy as well. By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain is better able to communicate with the rest of your body, which means more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, potentially less nausea, and more.
And It's Safe...
Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy is both effective and very low risk1, which means that expecting mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically as well as mentally.
