The excitement of preparing for a new baby can be interrupted for many women by back pain. Chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective means of relieving such pain. At Dixon Health we see many women during and after pregnancy.

What causes back pain during pregnancy?

There are a variety of factors that contribute towards back pain in pregnancy, postural and hormonal changes being key. As the baby grows, the mother’s body changes. Hormones released during pregnancy, mainly oestrogen and progesterone, cause ligaments and joints to soften, making them more prone to injury.

How can chiropractic help with pregnancy?

By ensuring that your pelvis and nervous system are correctly balanced, alongside providing advice on muscle relaxation techniques and the best positions to support your back, we can help your body to adapt to pregnancy.

We consider chiropractic care to be an important part of your prenatal routine. As mother and baby grow together, chiropractic helps to release restrictions allowing the body to perform at its very best.
