Did you know 62% of women experience lower back pain during pregnancy? The majority of these women (69%) only experience this for the first time during their pregnancy! However, as common as pain in pregnancy is, it is certainly not normal! Pregnancy Chiropractic care with Dr Amy Norman may be of benefit to you! One study found 85% of pregnant women get back pain relief with Chiropractic!
Making you comfortable during pregnancy and prepared for birth!
Some research has indicated a wide range of possible benefits when having pregnancy Chiropractic care in combination with Obstetric care during pregnancy. This includes
Reduced back pain during pregnancy
Reduced pain during labour
Reduced labour times
But first and foremost- by getting your body as comfortable as possible during pregnancy, you will be more mobile and move better. This will promote better birthing outcomes and can work in a few ways. One of the goals with pregnancy care and Chiropractic is to keep your pelvis ready for birth. By keeping your pelvis aligned and managing associated muscular, joint and ligament tissues you will be giving your baby as much space needed for them to get into an ideal position for birth. Pregnancy posture has many impacts for your birth experience such as foetal positioning and back pain. Keeping you active and healthy during pregnancy will improve birth outcomes.
At Dynamic Chiropractic we also provide women with various education, ergonomic advice, recommended stretches and sleeping positions as well as provide a variety of pregnancy and postpartum products!
