Pregnancy Chiropractic at Family Health Professionals Helensvale

As taking medication isn’t an option, drug-free chiropractic care may address such discomfort allowing you to enjoy the comfortable and healthy pregnancy you deserve.

Here are ways chiropractic may help throughout the following stages:


Chiropractic care may help the body to be as strong, supple and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy.

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy could reduce back pain, nausea and other types of discomfort without the use of drugs.

Another reason why we recommend that pregnant women get adjusted is the growing baby’s weight and the natural adaptive postural changes needed as time goes on can put pressure and strain on the joints and surrounding muscles. Chiropractic care can help ensure that your spine and pelvis are strong and properly aligned.

For some women, chiropractic care during pregnancy may help restore a state of balance to the spine and pelvis. When that takes place your body could function better with fewer symptoms.

Being under Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy ensures that the pelvis is functioning optimally.  Mechanical irritation of the sacroiliac joints can reduce pelvic mobility which is essential for natural childbirth.

All births and even natural births can place stress on a baby’s spine.  Our Chiropractor recommends that you have your baby’s spine checked for any issues after birth when you feel comfortable.  Checking a child’s spine is safe and gentle and not traumatic.
