What is chiropractic ?

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession focused on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal issues, primarily related to the spine. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, aiming to align the body's musculoskeletal structure to enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. They often treat issues like back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other conditions related to the body's alignment. Chiropractic care also emphasises overall wellness and preventive measures.

Pre-natal care

Pre-natal care is an important step both for the mother and the baby.
A woman’s body undergoes innumerable changes during pregnancy
and many women might experience:

  • Pubic symphysis discomfort

  • Lower back pain

  • Hip pain

  • Tingling in arms and legs 

  • Sciatica

  • Post-natal depression

Issues with pelvic alignment and uterus imbalances can lead to misaligned spines and changes in posture. These imbalances affect both the mother and the baby. The uterus connects to the inner pelvis via ligaments and soft tissues. When the mother experiences pelvic imbalances, it creates twists in these ligaments, altering the uterus's shape and reducing the space for the baby to grow.
Consequently, this can affect the fetus's position in the mother's abdomen, potentially causing transverse or breech positioning.
