We understand it can be daunting seeing a Chiropractor during pregnancy and we do our best to explain our treatment techniques and approach to keep you at ease. Our approach includes modified gentle treatments including spinal mobilizations, soft tissue therapy and exercises.
What to expect during your pregnancy chiropractic appointment
As a Pregnancy patient the ultimate goal will be to get out of pain as quick as possible, we will then spend time helping you manage the symptoms through education and modifying your day to day activities.
The changes and adaptations happening in your body throughout pregnancy may increase the amount of stress placed on your joints, muscles and tendons. We aim to work as a team throughout your pregnancy, educating you on how to stand, sit and move better we can help relieve this increased stress. We also offer advice on exercises to keep you comfortable, moving and reduce stress as your pregnant body changes.
