Visit Oceanside Chiropractic for pregnancy massages and chiropractic treatment. Our trained chiropractors and massage therapists can help relieve aches and pains relating to pregnancy. Pregnancy massages need to be done by professionals to ensure that you and the baby are not adversely affected.
There are some treatments our therapists can do to assist you in managing your pregnancy-related back pains. The additional weight of the baby causes major stress to the spine and back muscles, so we are on hand to provide you with the most appropriate treatments to better manage it.
We understand that the first major concern you might have is whether chiropractic is safe for a soon-to-be mother and baby. Firstly, it might be easier to understand what chiropractic actually does, and how it might help. Chiropractic predominantly focuses on the spine, and as chiropractors we aim to help maintain the joints of the spine by making a number of small adjustments. This type of therapy reduces stress on the spinal nerves (which increases during pregnancy), without the use of surgery or drugs. This allows the body to maintain greater overall health, reduce pain, and helps keep you moving and feeling great.
While complications are rare, there are a few conditions that may preclude a pregnant woman from seeing a chiropractor. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please speak to your doctor before visiting a chiropractor:
As pregnant women have enlarged bellies, we have special tables and pillows to allow you to be comfortable during your pregnancy massage. We also employ special techniques that avoid the abdomen, keeping you and your unborn infant safe. We have helped many soon to be expecting, and post-partum mums with their aches and pains.
How Chiropractic Makes Pregnancy Easier
Pregnancy can be a tough time for a woman, with hundreds of little physical and hormonal changes occurring over the course of nine months. One of the changes we see affecting women most is the change to your centre of gravity (your growing belly). This change in gravity causes you to arch your back and makes it difficult to perform your daily tasks the usual way. This can lead to unhealthy positions when you stand or sleep, leading to damaged joints or a misaligned spine.
During pregnancy, the pelvis changes to accommodate for your growing baby and this can cause discomfort in your pelvis often diagnosed as SPD or symphysis pubis disorder. This can also affect the joints of the spine.
Much of the back and hip pain experienced during pregnancy is caused by these issues. That’s why we recommend regular check-ups during your pregnancy to make sure your spine and pelvis are functioning and moving appropriately. One study found that over 75% of pregnant women experienced substantial pain relief after regular chiropractic sessions.
Pregnancy is a one-of-a-kind experience, but that’s no reason to live with the pain. If you are interested in how we at Oceanside Chiropractic can assist you with your pain or discomfort, or if you would like to minimise potential back pain as your pregnancy moves forward, then give us a call at Oceanside Chiropractic today.
We offer safe and effective physical therapy that will help to make your life during and after your pregnancy that much better.
