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.

Anne-F-testimonials-Paul-Parolin-Chiropractor-Halesworth-SuffolkI have had a recurring problem with pain in my neck and back for a number of years. When  I first visited Paul, about three years ago, I couldn't stand up straight. After my first visit my posture had definitely improved and the pain was noticeably less.  I made a number of weekly visits and found improvement in my posture and I had less pain each time. I have visited osteopaths in the past and have found them helpful. However, the chirocranial approach is a much less painful  treatment. I visit Paul monthly and the underlying problem has diminished and my visits are now mainly maintenance. I have recommended Paul to a number of friends who have also found the technique beneficial.
