Pregnancy Chiropractic in Melbourne

Woman with hands on pregnant bellyPregnancy is an exciting, new chapter of life. However, as beautiful as it is, it is often accompanied by aches, pains, and discomfort. As your baby gets ready to enter the world, your body is forced to accommodate your little one’s growing body. Christie Chiropractic happily offers prenatal chiropractic care to help your pregnancy go as smoothly as can be.

How Safe Is Chiropractic Care for Expectant Mothers?

When it comes to prenatal chiropractic care, we offer specific care that benefits both mother and baby. For example, pregnant women experience increased ligament laxity. This means that they are hypermobile. It is for this reason that we modify our techniques to be much gentler than general chiropractic methods.

Dr. Christie has had specific training for pregnant mothers and utilizes Webster’s technique to carefully realign the pelvis, allowing for better function, and release the complimentary ligaments and muscles located in the pelvic region. We do our best to adapt care to suit the needs of expectant mothers without compromising their comfort.

Benefits for Your Baby

While pregnant, your body is shifting, your joints are moving, and your pelvis is opening to accommodate labor and delivery. These many ongoing physical changes can lead to muscle imbalances. By getting adjusted, your pelvis is able to function as it should, with normal range of motion. This is important because a restricted pelvis directly affects how your baby is able to move and establish comfort inside the womb.

At Christie Chiropractic, preparation for a prenatal chiropractic visit is no different than preparation for a standard appointment, with the exception of x-rays as they will not be taken.

We understand that chiropractic care can be nerve wracking to new mothers. As a mother herself, Dr. Christie is always open to address your questions and concerns! Contact us today.
