PREGNANCY

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe and effective evidence-based alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of common neuromusculoskeletal conditions that can greatly assist you throughout your pregnancy and labor.

A common reason for seeking chiropractic treatment during pregnancy is to correct the spinal alignment and pelvic balance to enable the body to function properly. In order to meet with the physical and mental demands of pregnancy, various physiological changes occur to a woman’s body in order to create a suitable environment for the baby to grow and develop. We assist in these demands by helping the body to improve circulation through improving mobility, balanced and relaxed supporting muscles.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?

Yes! Chiropractic care is a safe, effective practice during pregnancy. Here at Healing Hands Chiropractic Singapore, we advise all mothers to get routine chiropractic care during pregnancy which can help to manage pain during pregnancy in the joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It can also establish a balanced pelvis which can provide your baby with as much space as possible to move and grow over the course of your pregnancy. This also can possibly help to allow faster, easier labour and delivery.

When there is a misalignment in the pelvis, it creates an “intrauterine constraint” where the uterus space is compromised therefore restricts the baby to move freely and leads to malposition.

What Happens To Our Body During Pregnancy?

  • You may experience extreme fatigue, irritability, bloating, reflux, indigestion, dizziness, headache, and etc.
  • Weight gain of approximately 10-15 kg may occur.
  • Body ache especially in the lower back, hips, lower and upper extremities are common areas although neck, shoulder and arm pain also can occur.
  • You can get swollen easily anywhere in the body due to water retention
  • Your bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments can become softer and looser
  • You grow a new organ (placenta)
  • Your blood volume increases

These changes during pregnancy can result in a spine or pelvis being misaligned and can cause pain.

Increased weight plus the growing belly often leads to an increased curve (swayback) in the low back area, causing increase stress and pressure in the spinal joints and discs.

This will also cause the shoulders, neck, and head to slouch forward as a form of compensation. Additionally, this will reduce the mobility of the low back and hip region which ultimately can lead to pain during the pregnancy.

As these changes in the pregnant woman’s body occur during each semester of pregnancy it will have a profound effect on the body as a whole which can affect the natural progression of the woman’s body to accommodate the healthy growing baby. We can help in such cases with trust and faith in the body’s healing process @Healing Hands.
