Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe during pregnancy?

In now word: YES!! It’s an effective, non-invasive treatment that can help with the aches and pains that so often is associated with pregnancy. And a properly aligned spine can help make both pregnancy and delivery more comfortable.

Back pain during pregnancy has both mechanical and hormonal causes. Mechanically your centre of gravity moves forward as the baby develops which causes an increase in the curve of your low back and thus the load on the joints, ligaments and muscles of the spine and pelvis. Hormonally the body produces greater amounts of pregnancy hormones which results in a loosening of ligaments and joint capsules.
