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
Vivienne-K-testimonial-paul-Parolin-Chiropractor-Harmony-Chirocranial-ClinicHaving been a person who has always been physically fit, it came as a shock to my system when I sustained a back injury at work, necessitating in my having to use a walking stick.

Initially on my G.P.’s referral I enrolled for physio treatment. Although it helped my mobility levels the pain was not decreasing and after 3 months I decided to seek the advice of Paul Parolin, a chiropractor at The Harmony Centre.

Having also suffered for 15 years from arthritis in my neck, Paul agreed on a course of treatment for this and his diagnosis of a twisted spine and vertebrae problems.

I found Paul to be very understanding of my problems, always explaining the treatment and I am amazed at how he can determine exactly where the ‘knots’ and pain sites are.

I have benefitted hugely from the treatment and regained confidence in walking as well as having more mobility in my neck.

I would thoroughly recommend the Harmony Centre for the warm and friendly welcome and highly professional approach to clients needs.
