As most people are aware, after conception a mother’s body begins to change. Hormones begin the task of preparing the environment in which the baby will grow and develop. It is important to make sure the environment is the healthiest and most nurturing it can be. Nutrition is important so too is how the mother is feeling physically, mentally and emotionally.


Often as the baby begins to grow and the term is moving towards the nine month mark the mother’s body struggles with the weight of the baby. The low back can feel the strain of the extra weight pulling the lumbar spine forward. Sometimes due to the extra weight and the softening of the ligaments the mother experiences pain and discomfort. During these trying times minimising discomfort is a good preparation for the upcoming birth process.

I have been fortunate enough to treatment many mothers over the years. Some attend my clinic for the full term of their pregnancy others come looking for relief from pain. Then after the joyful event is over they bring their babies to me.  It is a good idea also for mothers to have chiropractic care after giving birth.

Many times during an initial consultation a mother has said either, “I never had back pain until I became pregnant.” or ” …until I gave birth.” This can be 10, 20, 30 years later. If only they had the opportunity to have treatment at the time then years of pain could be avoided.

Having received chiropractic treatment from Paul Parolin for over a year, I would highly recommend him. I have found Paul to be kind, trustworthy and his treatment very effective. I had a trapped nerve in my spine one side and compacted vertebrae the other, as well as problem areas in knees and neck. I am delighted with the recovery made and am pleased to be able to continue to go every six to eight weeks to maintain optimal function. Paul uses a mixture of firm or gentle, subtle manipulation. His diagnosis was excellent, confirmed by MRI results, and I find his understanding of the body and holistic system impressive. if you are in doubt whether it is worth going, I would say definitely worth it.
