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.
A mother’s body often goes through drastic physical and biomechanical changes over the nine months of pregnancy. In addition, the labour and delivery (whether vaginally or via C-section) can cause changes in the mother’s pelvic alignment as well as that of the lower and mid-back region. Such misalignment in those structures can bring pain, aches and discomfort during various everyday activities such as walking, nursing, sleeping, and etc; both during and after pregnancy. Healing Hands Chiropractic care can help to restore these misalignments through specific and precise manual therapy, stretches and specific exercises.
Key Chiropractic Benefits includes;
Identifying postural imbalances to detect any differences in weight between the right and the left sides of the body, alignment from our head all the way down

1-on-1 consultation with our Chiropractors with a detailed review of your health history.
Our Chiropractor will investigate and educate you on the necessary steps forward in reaching your health goals.
Our Chiropractors will perform a series of range of motion tests to determine your current body condition and an adjustment will be administered if deemed
clinically safe to do so.
Our Chiropractors will use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled force to the spinal joints. “Crack” or “Pop” sound may occur as your spine gets manipulated. Do not be alarmed, as the adjustment releases trapped gasses from your joints.
X-Rays will be prescribed so that we can accurately diagnose your condition before prescribing a customized treatment program. It is also for your safety and for us to rule out any possible underlying conditions that cannot be treated by Chiropractic.
The review of your X-rays is complimentary at your following visit if you take up the X-rays with our preferred diagnostic partners.
