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
Before discovering Paul at The Harmony Centre I put up with constant back, neck and shoulder pain brought on by heavy lifting and various mishaps.  On discussing with him what outcome I hoped to achieve I quickly realised improvement wasn’t going to take place overnight.  Working with his guidance, manipulation and a lot of self help, yes do have to actually perform the given exercises regularly, my aches and pains have gradually diminished.  Months later, with a slight lifestyle adjustment, I have now improved beyond my expectations, although I still visit Paul for the “odd” maintenance check!!
