Pregnancy brings many new changes to your body which can disrupt your nervous system. Hormonal fluctuations can cause nausea, heartburn, indigestion, migraines, mood swings, fatigue and more. Physical changes to accommodate your growing child can cause muscles strains, stretch ligaments and irritated nerves. This can result in backache, pelvic pain, joint stiffness, and sciatica. Dr. Jackie’s gentle chiropractic care helps prevent and alleviate these symptoms, without the use of medications.
The goal of the adjustment is to improve your pelvic alignment and relieve any tension in the ligaments surrounding the pelvis. Maintaining optimal spinal health during pregnancy can greatly reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort, improve mobility and flexibility, and even shorten your labor, delivery and recovery time.
