Chiropractic & Pregnancy

In the last month, I’ve had three patients who gave birth to their first babies – three healthy baby boys. You may be thinking what the hell’s that to do with Chiropractic treatment?!
These three women have been under chiropractic care for years. Before they got pregnant, they initially had treatment for relief from various aches and pains, and since then for regular maintenance check ups to make sure that their bodies are working at 100%, allowing them to stay fit, active, pain free and healthy.

With having such a optimal neuromuscularskeletal system, their bodies respectively were able to handle and adapt well to the extra stress of child bearing, natural birth, and post partum recovery…….with no aches, pains or complications.

Through research in this area between chiropractic and pregnancy the statistics speak for themselves;
1)Those first time mothers, receiving chiropractic treatment whilst pregnant had 24% labour times. Mothers on the second or third pregnancy had a 39% shorter pregnancy. This is in comparison to mothers not receiving chiropractic care.
2) For mothers receiving chiropractic treatment for back pain during the pregnancy, 84% gained relief from their symptoms. (1)(2)(3)
