Pregnancy Chiropractic in Northcote

When you are a mum-to-be, you should be able to relax and enjoy the experience. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t always cooperate, and pre-existing imbalances in your spine and pelvis become more exaggerated when pregnant.

As a result, you can feel pain and discomfort in your lower back, neck, shoulders, and pelvic region, preventing you from fully embracing this special time.

There is hope, however. Chiropractic adjustments, modified for pregnant women, as well as prenatal massage and acupuncture, work together to help you enjoy your pregnancy once again!


How Chiropractic Helps

Chiropractic care is extremely beneficial during pregnancy, and we treat many mums here at our practice.

Over the course of your pregnancy, the organ positioning and musculoskeletal system shift greatly. As a result, it’s extremely important that your pelvis, joints, spine and nervous system are healthy, fully functioning and properly aligned for maximum comfort.

In turn, this allows for your growing baby to have optimal development and positioning during gestation. Studies also show that expecting mothers, who have ongoing chiropractic care through pregnancy, experience less pain and shorter labour times.

Adding Pregnancy/Prenatal Massage to Your Plan

As you prepare to welcome new life, a prenatal massage offers the perfect opportunity to nurture your wellbeing and is a great addition to any wellness or self-care regime. With gentle, tailored techniques, massage has been shown to alleviate the common discomforts of pregnancy, such as lower back pain, swollen ankles, and muscle tension.

As a stand-alone service or used in conjunction with chiropractic, prenatal massage has many benefits for Mum and Baby. A prenatal massage is a moment to relax and focus on the many blessings headed your way. You can honour your incredible motherhood journey and embrace the love that blooms within while our capable and highly skilled staff work to loosen your muscles and ligaments.

If you also receive chiropractic adjustments, massage prepares the body to hold those adjustments for longer periods of time, meaning you have fewer symptoms of pain and discomfort in between adjustments.

How Acupuncture Can Benefit Your Pregnancy

For women, the months before, during, and after pregnancy can be filled with physical limitations, discomfort and even pain. You can really start to lose yourself, feeling not like yourself during this challenging time. In addition to the benefits of chiropractic and massage, acupuncture is another option for mums-to-be to try.

Expectant mothers have used acupuncture for a while now to alleviate pain, ease morning sickness, and reduce stress. Additionally, it’s a holistic and non-invasive method to help breech babies get into the proper birth position or induce labour when necessary.

The needles are nothing to fear; the fine needles are medical-grade, and when inserted, most patients feel nothing. It’s quickly becoming a popular choice for pregnant women to add to their wellness routines.
