Pregnancy-related Symptoms

Even the best pregnancies can manifest in some of these common symptoms due to the loosening of ligaments and changes in posture:

  • Backpain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Pelvic pain (Symphysis pubis dysfunction)

You may experience pelvic instability post-delivery, shoulder and neck pain if breastfeeding, or general aches and pains from carrying and caring for your newborn.


Can Chiropractic Help?

Our chiropractors aim to make your pregnancy as comfortable as possible, the delivery of your baby optimal, and your recovery as fast as possible post-birth. This can be assisted by stabilising the pelvis with a number of chiropractic techniques and specific exercises.

Dr Alan is qualified in Webster technique, a specific pregnancy technique.

If your baby has had a difficult birth, is unsettled or is having trouble feeding (particularly on one side), it may help to discuss these events with Dr Alan to see if chiropractic can help. Our Impulse Adjusting Instrument has a specific setting for paediatric care.

As part of your first visit to our office, our chiropractors will take a full medical history and carry out a thorough physical examination to determine if they are able to help you. Read more here.
