Pregnancy

At Kardinya Chiropractic we use a range of gentle and safe techniques to help relieve pain throughout the body as it progresses through pregnancy. We can also help improve pelvic balance through chiropractic adjustments, which can be especially beneficial during labour and delivery.

 

During pregnancy there are many physical, emotional and hormonal changes. Some of the biomechanical changes that can occur during pregnancy include: 

  • Hyperextension of the neck

    • This can lead to neck pain, tightness and headache​

  • Forward head posture

    • This can lead to thoracic outlet syndrome, neck pain, headaches, arm and wrist pain/numbness and tingling, carpal tunnel syndrome 

  • Hyper extension of upper back

    • This can cause reduced lung capacity, difficulty breathing, indigestion​

  • Anterior pelvic tilt

    • This can lead to pelvic pain, pubic symphysis dysfunction (SPD)​, pubic girdle pain (PGP)

  • Increased stress on low back

    • This can lead to sciatica, low ​back pain, constipation

As your baby grows and develops within the womb, it is natural for your posture to change, which in turn will see your centre of gravity shift. Many patients regularly visit our chiropractors during their pregnancy, to address the above common occurrences.

Some ways in which our chiropractors can support you through pregnancy through treatment:

  • Alleviate discomfort and pain in your back, neck, hips, and joints

  • Improve spinal alignment and posture

  • Reduce experiences of nausea

  • Promote optimal nervous system function and communication between your brain and body
