Chiropractic is not a replacement for painkilling drugs (or a quick fix relief).
It is a natural way to stimulate your body to heal itself and this may take time.
Chiropractic is not dangerous. Your chiropractor has trained for over 5 years to use the safest and gentlest techniques available.
Chiropractic is not unconventional. It is scientific and now a mainstream part of healthcare around the world. Thousands of people use chiropractors every day as a part of a good health regime.
Pregnancy & Postnatal
Restoring pelvic balance
Doctors of Chiropractic work specifically with your pelvis throughout pregnancy restoring a state of balance and creating an environment for an easier, safer delivery.
Safer and easier deliveries
When reviewing the obstetric texts, the reported reasons for complicated and painful delivery (dystocia) are caused by pelvic imbalance and its resulting effects on your uterus and your baby's position.
Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy restores balance to your pelvic muscles and ligaments and therefore may lead to safer and easier deliveries for you and your baby, with less stress for everyone involved.
The chiropractic techniques used throughout the pregnancy are selected to be specially gentle and, above all, safe.
Facts and Figures
- Pregnancy and child care increase women's vulnerability to back problems. Studies in the USA indicate that between 40% and 60% of pregnant women get back pain (Perkins, Hammer and Loubert. Journal of Nurse-Midwifery. Vol 43, No.5, September/October 1998, page 334)
Men's pain is often a result of an injury; women's as part of their everyday lives, a result of long-standing conditions or activities, including domestic work and child care.
Factors which contribute towards back pain include:
Pregnancy - hormonal and other body changes
Caring for babies and young children - breast feeding, bathing, picking up
Menopause and risk of osteoporosis
