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 structural adaptations during pregnancy may increase the amount of stress placed on your joints, muscles and tendons, by educating you on how to stand, sit and move better we can help relieve this increased stress.
We also offer advice on exercises that can help sustain those changes in the early stages of pregnancy.
