The incredible physical and hormonal events occurring in a woman’s body during pregnancy are both miraculous and challenging… It is a time when the body expresses an amazing wisdom.
Ligament laxity, weight gain and shifts in the body’s centre of gravity are some of the extraordinary changes that accommodate a growing baby. These changes sometimes create joint discomfort, particularly in the low back and pelvis and stress to soft tissues like muscles and ligaments.
Chiropractors are skilful at assessing improper joint motion and function. Restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system can make pregnancy a more comfortable journey for many women.
We use gentle blocking procedures, and other SOT techniques to assist with healthy function throughout this time and to prepare the body for birthing.
At the Bendigo Chiropractic Centre our practitioners are experienced in the gentle care of women during all stages of pregnancy.
