Why should I have chiropractic care during pregnancy?
During pregnancy, there are several physiological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. These changes place increased stress and load to the body commonly leading to:
* Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
* Pelvic changes
* Postural adaptations
All these can lead to an increased chance of mechanical back pain and/or sciatica. A misaligned pelvis may also occur, reducing the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction can make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
