Pregnancy creates tremendous stress on the spine, back and the nervous system of the expecting mother. As the fetus grows, there will be more weight on the front of the body and the mother’s back will compensate to manage the weight. Postural compensation results in tight muscles, stress on the spinal discs of the neck and back, pressure on the knees and feet.
Chiropractic care is a great natural alternative and non-invasive service that can be utilized throughout all trimesters. Most pregnant mothers are not aware that they can get chiropractic care during their pregnancy for pain relief and minimize difficult labour. Dr. Rogini at Shakti Chiro is specifically trained to provide safe & effective prenatal and infant chiropractic care.
Chiropractic during pregnancy improves and manages spinal and pelvic distortions, decreases pain and reduces intrauterine constraints. This will allow maximum space for the baby to be in optimal position in the womb. Chiropractic care using Webster Technique [hyperlink within website] will relax and reduce tension of tight uterine muscles and muscles in the pelvis. As a result of adjustments, this will improve the labor progression and cervical dilation.
Shakti Chiro not only manages the pain symptoms during pregnancy but also supports the health of the mother and the developing baby throughout the trimesters.
