At Shannon Avenue Chiropractic, we offer non-invasive therapeutic techniques to reduce pain and ensure a healthy nervous system while your pregnant.
Chiropractic care is a safe drug-free treatment option during all stages of Pregnancy.
The body goes through amazing changes during pregnancy and the body adapts uniquely to this situation, these changes and changes in weight distribution put more pressure on put on your spine as your body changes and your baby grows.
Back pain during pregnancy is common and we love helping pregnant patients throughout their term and into postpartum care.
Treatment is safe in each stage of pregnancy, but it’s important that you let your Geelong Chiropractor know as soon as you are pregnant so that treatment can be tailored according to the stage of pregnancy you are in.
As your pregnancy progresses to the second and third trimester, treatment techniques may change and we can use a pregnancy pillow to ensure you are still comfortable to lay on your stomach.
There has been positive research on receiving chiropractic care and less intervention during birth as well as decreasing pain outcomes.
We commonly see patients in our clinic during pregnancy and postpartum with:
- Lower back pain
- Mid back pain
- Foot/ankle pain
- Pelvic and Sacrum pain.
Ensuring that you receive care postpartum can also be an important part of your recovery and self-care. We usually allow 6 weeks before recommencing care if mum has had a C-section performed to allow for appropriate healing, but New mothers often experience an increase in mid Back pain from Breastfeeding, holding or rocking their baby and just general soreness post labour. Reach out to us. We would love to help.
