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.

Lesley Meadows testimonial paul Parolin Chiropractor Harmony-Chirocranial ClinicI had suffered for 17 years with neck pain and limited arm movement and thought that my only option was to live with it.

Physiotherapy helped for a short time but the pain slowly came back. A couple of my friends had recommended Paul to me at the Harmony Centre So I nervously booked myself in for an appointment.

This was one of the best decisions I have ever made!  Paul explains everything to me as we go along and always puts me at ease.

My treatment has been tailored to my specific problems and I started off with an intensive course of treatment and I now see Paul every four weeks.

My life has completely changed, I no longer wake up in pain, I can carry bags and reach up into cupboards. I’m not hunched up and I can sit at my desk without any discomfort.

I feel like a normal person again!  Thanks Paul.
