Pregnancy is a time of wonder and change, mystery and challenge, joy and fulfillment. It is a precious time in which the care and support we grant ourselves – physically, emotionally and spiritually – is especially important, not only for ourselves but also for the growing baby. Our role at Bridge Chiropractic is to provide a nurturing, mother-centered, safe and gentle means to promote optimum health before, during, and after pregnancy, both for mother and child. This will form the foundation of a life-long partnership in health and wellness for the whole family.
Our approach includes hands on therapies and education, which help the woman adapt to the changes her body goes through during pregnancy. Structural changes and associated symptoms which may occur during pregnancy include: increased curve of the low back, changes in center of gravity, alteration of gait and “flattening” of feet, increased laxity in joints (especially pelvis and low back), mid-back pain related to increased breast size and postural changes, hip pain, pain when rising from a seated/lying position, and sciatica.
