Pregnancy and Chiropractic


Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Pregnancy can bring an array of musculo-skeletal complaints which will usually just be temporary until baby is delivered. This could be as simple as general thoracic pain and headaches to the debilitating pain of PSD/pelvic pain. At Bulimba Chiropractic, we have a pregnancy table which drops away allowing baby to sit comfortably while you lie on your tummy for your treatment. This also allows Niki to assess your pelvic joints in a neutral position for dysfunction (SIJ, pubic symphysis, sacrum and lumbar spine). Using the gentle activator tool, Niki can release the ligaments around specific areas of the pelvis to encourage muscles to relax, this is turn will assist in reducing pelvic and lumbar pain related to joint movement dysfunction in pregnancy. Conditions that Chiropractic can assist with in Pregnancy are: - pubic symphysis dysfunction - intercostal (rib) pain - lumbar, mid thoracic and neck pain - pregnancy related headaches We are located just off Oxford Street Bulimba with plenty of parking at the rear of the practice.
