PREGNANCIES

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a vital time for therapy as it can reduce or prevent the stresses to the baby’s body before giving birth. Birth itself can be the first incident in a cascade of events that can negatively impact the way that an individual’s nervous and muscular systems function. Starting treatment prior to pregnancy is ideal as it provides sufficient time to improve the expecting moms musculoskeletal health such as pelvic muscle tone and core stabilizing muscles.

Poor muscle tone, weak core musculature, hormonal shift, increased mechanical demand, postural adaptation and pelvic changes.
