Pregnancy

At Oasis Chiropractic, our team of chiropractors are well equipped to manage the care of women throughout all stages of their pregnancies.

A woman’s body goes through a dramatic physiological change during pregnancy, including the following ailments which can result in misaligned joints or spine:

  • Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
  • Pelvic changes
  • Postural adaptations
  • Changes in centre of gravity
  • Increased ligament laxity

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
