It offers solutions for discomforts and pain a mother might be experiencing during her pregnancy. Pregnancy is an exciting time for new parents, but it is often accompanied by aches and pains that were not experienced before. It involves the use of different tools to help alleviate pressure on specific points on the mother’s neck and spine hence reducing the pain experienced in the neck and back. Prenatal chiropractors will evaluate health risks and use gentle and light pressure to avoid any complications. The mother and child safety always comes first.

What are the Common Conditions a Prenatal Chiropractor Treats?

During and after pregnancy the body undergoes an incredible amount of physiological changes. As the body changes the curve at the back increases, the abdomen protrudes more, ligaments relax and the pelvis changes.

  • Lower back pain

  • Leg pain
  • Costo-vertebral pain
  • Round ligament syndrome
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Pain between shoulders
  • Arm and neck pain
  • Headaches
