Pregnancy

Studies have been done to show that women under chiropractic care have reduced labour time. Pelvic balance and function are vital during this time in a woman’s life.

At Aspire Chiropractic Hamilton, we have two chiropractors who alongside spinal adjusting, specialize in providing pregnancy chiropractic care.

Here are ways chiropractic can help throughout the following stages:

Preconception

Chiropractic care may help the body to be as strong, supple and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy.

Pregnancy

Getting regular chiropractic care during pregnancy may help to reduce back pain and other types of discomfort without the use of medication. As taking prescription or OTC drugs isn’t an option, natural chiropractic care can address such discomfort allowing you to enjoy the comfortable and healthy pregnancy you deserve.

Labour and Birth

Being under chiropractic care throughout pregnancy may help to reduce labour time and decrease the need for various interventions during the birth process.

After Birth

Even natural births can place stress on a baby’s spine. That’s why we recommend getting your baby assessed as soon after giving birth as possible. We apply about the same amount of pressure that’s employed to check a tomato for ripeness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will adjustments hurt my baby?

No, not at all. A baby is adjusted using just a very light touch. That’s all it takes to remove any spinal misalignment.

At what point in my pregnancy should I start receiving care?

Chiropractic can benefit you at every stage of pregnancy. The earlier you start, however, the more likely you’ll enjoy a comfortable pregnancy.
