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.


Harmony Chirocranial Clinic Chiropractor in Suffolk & Norfolk
I had been suffering from neck and back pain along with a lack of mobility in my neck for a number of years. Finally I decided to try a Chiropractor for advice and maybe treatment.

I visited The Harmony centre and had a session with Paul Parolin. Paul assessed my condition and started a course of treatment with me and now only two months on the pain in my back and neck has gone and the amount of mobility I have in my neck is amazing.

On top of this success and because the way the treatment works there have been other beneficial outcomes too. I feel more relaxed, my posture has improved and I am able to concentrate for longer periods at a time.

Paul has recommended occasional sessions of treatment to keep things in working order (akin to having a car serviced) which I shall be taking advantage of.

My only regret is that I wish I had done this years ago!!
