Adjusting women throughout pregnancy is one of the most rewarding aspects of chiropractic.
Biomechanical changes and stress to the neuromusculoskeletal system are present during and immediately after pregnancy.
Chiropractic evaluation and treatment of the spine and sacroiliac joints of the pelvis during this period may be warranted and considered a safe and effective means of treating common musculoskeletal symptoms of a non-musculoskeletal condition that many pregnant patients encounter; such as the muscular tension often associated with back labour (contractions and sharp pain felt in the lower back during labour).1
Receiving chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can help relieve back pain.
