Do you know someone suffering from aches and pains during pregnancy or are you planning on getting pregnant soon? If so, now is the time to get checked by a chiropractor.

Chiropractic can help reduce pain and discomfort by restoring correct pelvic alignment. Many pregnant women learn to accept low back pain, leg pain, nausea and pubic pain, when in fact natural approaches such as chiropractic can help.

At Discover Chiropractic we use specific pregnancy techniques to help restore function to the pelvis and spine. This helps promote a stress free labour for the mother and proper positioning for the baby. This technique involves assessment of the spine and pelvis followed by gentle and specific adjustments.

There are several benefits of being adjusted throughout a pregnancy. Studies have shown that with regular chiropractic care first time mothers averaged a 24% shorter labour time whist experienced mothers showed a 39% decrease in average labour time. Another study showed that there was a 50% decrease in the need for medical intervention such as epidurals and other pain medication with women that underwent regular chiropractic treatment during pregnancy.

So if you know someone that may benefit from this care, please don’t hesitate to contact the clinic for further information.
