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.

Pain after Falls or Car Accidents

If you have been involved in an accident and are suffering pain as a result it may be beneficial to get checked out by a chiropractor. It’s critical to seek professional help sooner rather than later if you find yourself continually dealing with pain.

Your chiropractor will take a detailed history and perform a thorough examination. They will be able to recognise if there is a need for further assessment or imaging, to rule out any serious underlying issues such as a fracture.

The pain may be nerve pain or it may be referred pain which means, it is not felt at the actual site of the injury. Your chiropractor will be able to diagnose the source of the problem after a thorough assessment that involves orthopaedic and neurological testing.

Seeing a chiropractor is the best way to ensure any serious issues are addressed. Tension and discomfort caused by joint or muscle strains, sprains, damage of ligaments/tissues, as well as misalignment of joints which can cause radiating nerve sensations into your arms and legs.

A comprehensive appointment will allow us to access your exact situation and provide you with individualised care for long-term relief!
