Pregnancy, infancy and childhood are times for us to cherish, but they are also periods during which our bodies are placed under a lot of stress.
Before, During and After
Sometimes the initial excitement we experience at becoming pregnant starts to lessen by the presence of aches and pains in your back, pelvis or neck. Later in pregnancy, ligaments start to slacken to prepare for the birthing process- a combination of a larger tummy, increased weight, changing posture and softening ligaments can all cause lower back and pelvic instability. Using muscle releases, gentle manipulation and mobilisations, Chiropractic care may help with musculoskeletal issues related to pregnancy.
As a new mum, obviously your body has just gone through an amazingly stressful process. Many ladies seek Chiropractic during pregnancy for musculoskeletal issues.
... and what about the Kids?
As children grow, learn to walk and play sports through childhood into adolescence they are prone to slips, falls and tumbles. We will often never know if child hood accidents play a role in the problems we experience as adults.

The most common form is osteoarthritis, which is inflammation and degeneration of the joints. Chiropractors cannot reverse this damage but may be able to help with musculo-skeletal pain associated.

Talk to your Chiropractor for some great pointers on workplace ergonomics.
