During pregnancy it is not uncommon for the expectant mother to experience some pain or discomfort while her body is adapting. While it can be common to experience pain or discomfort during pregnancy, this doesn’t mean it’s normal!
At Penshurst Chiropractic we have completed further pregnancy specific chiropractic training and always love seeing our soon to be mums in the clinic! Chiropractic care is safe during all stages of pregnancy and can be tailored to your needs throughout. Pregnancy chiropractic care ensures that the spine and nervous system are balanced and functioning well, but also has a strong focus on making sure the pelvis is aligned and functioning optimally to allow for a more comfortable pregnancy, allow enough space for baby to move and grow, and to aid during the birthing process.
Symptoms that may be experienced during pregnancy that a Chiropractor may be able to help with include:
- Lower back pain
- Pelvis pain
- Groin and hip pain
- Round ligament pain
- Neck pain and headaches
And remember once your baby arrives to consider coming in for your post-natal check and a check for your bub!
