Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

pregnancy chiropractor london Carrying a baby for nine months is not an easy job for expectant mothers. Weight gain, poor posture, back pain and digestion problems can all cause discomfort but many treatments and medication, which would normally be used to help ease those problems, are unsafe for pregnant women to take. A McTimoney chiropractor uses practices that can help ease some of these issues that can plague pregnant women, without the use of medications.

The McTimoney chiropractic method is a more gentle approach, which focuses on gently adjusting bones and joints using short, deft movements. The technique, which is applied using hands only, is pain free and is so gentle it is even suitable for use on those experiencing backaches as a result of pregnancy.

Pregnancy can affect everyone in different ways. You might be fortunate enough to sail through your pregnancy completely pain free. But for those who do have issues, those nine months can become a miserable period of your life. Expecting a baby is supposed to be an exciting and happy time, which can make the side effects even harder to cope with. But there is no need to suffer, as I can help you to address the problems and ease any discomfort you are suffering from.

As your pregnancy develops, you are more likely to experience problems because weight gain can put more strain on the back. Some of the symptoms can include sore legs, headaches, sciatica, and shortness of breath, sickness, tiredness and dizziness. McTimoney chiropractic treatment can help relieve those issues and improve your spine and pelvis alignment throughout the nine months and beyond.

Treatment can also help with the delivery of your baby. Many women, who undergo a course of McTimoney treatment, experience a shorter and less painful labour.  As a trained McTimoney chiropractor, who has been practising for 23 years, I have a lot of experience in dealing with expectant mothers. I will assess your body during every session, so I can carefully monitor how you are coping with the pregnancy and help prevent you from experiencing any future problems before they arise.

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy can help strengthen your muscles, which is important the heavier you get. We can also work on making your joints more flexible and help boost your circulation. Staying healthy during your pregnancy is absolutely essential, which is why I will also look at other aspects of your lifestyle, including exercise and diet to try and make your pregnancy as enjoyable and pain free as possible.
