You don’t have to be expecting a baby to know that pregnant mothers suffer a whole range of uncomfortable ‘side-effects’. These may be anything from nausea and back pain to constipation, heartburn and fatigue, and most women are only too familiar with the less happy side of being pregnant. In fact, studies show that 50 per cent of women suffer with low back pain during pregnancy.
Chiropractic can often restore the feelings of blooming health and vitality that are supposed to accompany pregnancy. It works on the principle that the nervous system controls every part of the body through the nerves branching off the spinal cord from between each spinal joint.
If the joints are not moving properly (as a result of poor posture, stress, accident or other factors) the nerves can be affected and cause discomfort, pain or even disease.
Chiropractic involves gentle and specific manipulation of the joints of the spine and limbs, to restore mobility, relieve pressure on nerves and allow the body to heal. No drugs are used, making it an ideal treatment for those who are expecting.
