Pregnancy Chiropractic in Rotorua

Chiropractic during pregnancy is an important part of prenatal care. Unfortunately, not enough women know of the benefits of chiropractic care, both for themselves and their unborn baby.

A woman’s body undergoes an incredible amount of changes during pregnancy. As her baby grows, her musculoskeletal system must adjust accordingly to accommodate the growing uterus and prepare for delivery. Chiropractic care helps keep her body aligned as these changes occur, and also helps keep the nervous system functioning at its optimal level.

Chiropractic removes any subluxations or nerve interference, and enhances nervous system function. A healthy pregnancy helps a baby’s development. When the spine is adjusted, it also helps the pelvis move and function well.

This reduces the chance of in-utero constraints so the baby has room to move, and the mum is more likely to have an easier labour. Our mums report to us that they have faster and easier deliveries with fewer problems.

Many pregnant women experience pain and discomfort resulting from the stresses put on the body by the rapid growth of the baby and the changes the body must undergo to accommodate this. We recommend regular chiropractic spinal check-ups throughout pregnancy to ensure Mum is functioning at her optimal potential.

Some issues chiropractic may help with include low back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica, thoracic pain, headaches, referred arm and leg pain, pins and needles in arms and legs. Targeted, gentle care may help reduce a mum’s discomfort, which makes everyone happier.

Our chiropractors are skilled in the Webster Technique, a gentle process specifically designed for pregnancy adjustments. At no point do we ever touch your baby. We also provide pregnancy belly pillows to provide our mums with as much comfort as we can.

Some patients have told us that adjustment has helped them with positioning issues. Making sure the spine and pelvis are properly aligned gives your body the strong foundation needed to deliver a healthy baby.
