Prenatal and Postnatal Chiropractic Care

Prenatal and Postnatal Chiropractic Care

At The Back Clinic, we understand that pregnancy is an incredibly transformative process - both mentally and physically.

In addition to the mental preparation that comes with giving birth and raising a baby, your body will also naturally make adjustments as your baby and body grow. Unfortunately, these changes may lead to a range of musculoskeletal health issues, in some cases.

To help you overcome these problems and make your pregnancy as comfortable as possible, our experienced chiropractors here at The Back Clinic are ready to care for your body with prenatal and postnatal chiropractic care. We have clinics located at both Bankstown and Rockdale, and patients often travel from across Sydney to visit out chiropractors.  

 

Prenatal and Postnatal Care

Prenatal care refers to the health care treatments you may receive during your pregnancy. For example, your pregnancy checkups and tests are considered prenatal care as they help to keep both you and your baby healthy. Manual therapies, including chiropractic care, often help during this stage of your pregnancy.

Postnatal care in contrast is focused on maintaining your health after you give birth. Doing simple exercises, addressing musculoskeletal symptoms and forming healthy habits may help to give your body the boost it needs post pregnancy. Many patients benefit from a chiropractic consultation as part of their postnatal care. 

 

Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Chiropractic care is generally effective in addressing a range of musculoskeletal conditions, including those experienced during pregnancy. According to the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, ‘chiropractic treatment during pregnancy may be a safe and effective means of treating common musculoskeletal symptoms that affect pregnant women’.

 

What can I expect from a prenatal chiropractor?

Before your care starts, our chiropractors will perform nervous scan systems on your body to get a better idea of what may be going on. When performing chiropractic care on your body, we make sure to treat your body gently and safely by modified techniques, or techniques that are suitable for use during pregnancy.

At The Back Clinic, our prenatal chiropractic care may help in addressing:

  • Back pain: the added pressure to the back (especially the lower back) when carrying a baby often leads to back pain. You may find that chiropractic care for back pain experienced when pregnant may help to balance your pelvis and spine and remove excess pressure from your joints. Find out more about back pain here.

  • Problematic Postures: we use nervous system scans to check your body’s ability to adapt to stress, autonomic nervous system function and your postural efficiency. We also use postural scans to help us identify any biomechanical issues or imbalances.

  • Mental stress: we provide our patients with reading materials and advice to support you during your pregnancy.

 

Postnatal Chiropractic Adjustment

Our support during your pregnancy continues even after you give birth. To help your body overcome any difficulties experienced while pregnant, our postnatal chiropractors are trained to address a wide range of health complaints.

Postnatal care may include:

  • Postural checks to assess your balance, biomechanics and overall movement and flexibility

  • Gentle treatment to help you recover from musculoskeletal health concerns experienced during pregnancy.
