For many pregnant women, aches and pains in the lower back and hips are part of the experience. In fact, approximately 50 percent of pregnant women will experience back pain at some point before they deliver. During pregnancy, there are many changes that occur in the body to accommodate the growth of the baby. These changes often lead to common aches and discomfort pregnant mothers experience, such as low back pain. Regular visits to a chiropractor during pregnancy can address these issues.
Yes, absolutely. Over at Live Well Chiropractic, Dr Siew Wei performs Webster technique which is a specific chiropractic sacral and pelvic analysis and adjustment specifically for pregnant moms. Webster technique is helpful in improving the nervous system function, providing a more balanced pelvic bone, muscles and ligaments. Side effects may include lesser lower back pain, more comfort and movement, better sleep, and posture, it also optimises the baby’s ability to get into the best possible position for birth.
During pregnancy, women may experience a wide range of symptoms due to the changes happening in their bodies. Here are some of the most common symptoms that Chiropractic care can help with:
There is generally no wrong or right time to begin Chiropractic care when you're expecting. However, we would suggest to start prenatal Chiropractic adjustments as soon as possible to make as much corrections to the spine and surrounding muscles so you're able to enjoy your entire pregnancy.
What we can do is gently and specifically adjust the mother’s spine and pelvis back into a proper balanced state, re-establishing normal physiological function. When it reaches a balanced state, the baby can do what it's designed to do, which is to find the best possible position for itself for birth.
