  • Pelvic Pain: Hormonal changes can affect the ligaments and joints in your pelvis, leading to discomfort.

  • Sciatica: Pressure on the sciatic nerve can cause pain and tingling sensations in the lower back and legs.

  • Postpartum Recovery: After childbirth, your body needs time to heal and regain strength, which may involve discomfort.

Our Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

  • Prevent Discomfort: Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help alleviate common discomforts such as back pain, pelvic pain & sciatica. Our adjustments aim to provide relief and improve your quality of life.

    Ben is a great chiro. I came to Bathurst from Sydney just over a year ago & when I first got here I was looking for someone to get adjustments. I was only used to a chiro who would get you in & out as quickly as possible not someone who actually did an assessment on you & wanted to listen to you. I can't recommend Ben & the team highly enough. They do make you feel like your part of the family when you first walk in as they actually remember your name. If your looking for someone to not just give you an adjustment but to care about you, look no further than ben
    02:35 05 Jan 24
    Dr Ben and Dr Talissa are simply the best Chiro Bathurst has to offer. They are holistic chiropractors which was a very different experience from all other chiropractors I have visited before. Dr Ben took the time to actually properly diagnose my chronic migraines. After a number of treatments and exercises I was given to correct my underlying issues, I am down from DAILY migraines to only now having 1 minor headache in the past 30 days. I wish I came earlier.

    Bathurst Chiropractic is a warm and caring place everyone is very friendly there! I would highly recommend this service to anyone who is strugging with pain management and balance issues caused by degenerative osteoarthritis!I have never been to a chiropractor before or a Kinesiologist, so I was very nervous. The first appointment and adjustment with Talissa, was amazing she is so calming and reassuring and all my nerves immediately eased. I was shocked at how out of balance I was. The x-rays were surprising, too. I had 3 months of extensive work on my vagus nerve system 3 times a week alignment visits, reduced to twice a week. I have been 4 weeks post leaving after my balance dramatically reduced to within normal range. I continue to stay focused on listening to my body's needs through medition throughout my vagus nerve system. Thank you Talissa, you have changed my life and I greatly appreciate all you have helped me with and thank youtoall the staff who make every day warm and inviting.

    Is pregnancy chiropractic care safe?

    Yes, pregnancy chiropractic care is generally considered safe and beneficial for expectant mothers. Numerous studies (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19674697/), have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care during pregnancy. Chiropractors who specialise in prenatal and maternity care are trained to use gentle and specific techniques that are suitable for pregnant women.

    These chiropractic adjustments aim to relieve discomfort, improve spinal alignment & support overall well-being during pregnancy. The study mentioned found that chiropractic care was associated with high levels of patient satisfaction and no adverse effects. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified and experienced pregnancy chiropractor who can provide personalised care tailored to your specific needs and stage of pregnancy.

    Always discuss any healthcare decisions during pregnancy with your healthcare provider, including your chiropractor, to ensure the best care for you and your baby.

    How does pregnancy affect spinal and pelvic health, leading to discomfort and pain for expectant mothers?

    Pregnancy brings significant changes to a woman’s body, including shifts in posture and weight distribution due to the growing baby. The added weight forward shifts the center of gravity, leading to increased stress on the lower spine, facet joints & sacroiliac joints. This can result in lumbar lordosis, which exacerbates lower back pain. Additionally, the biomechanical changes can affect other spinal curves, potentially causing mid-back, upper back, shoulder & neck pain. Hormonal changes during pregnancy, such as increased progesterone, oxytocin & estrogen can further impact pelvic stability. The pressure on pelvic structures can contribute to discomfort. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to provide relief from low back pain for 84% of women, leading to more comfortable labor experiences and reduced labor times. In some cases, it even reduces the need for painkillers during labor.

    How does chiropractic care affect the baby during pregnancy?

    Chiropractic care primarily focuses on the mother’s health and alignment, but it can indirectly benefit the baby by creating a more supportive environment for growth and development. A well-aligned pelvis may also improve fetal positioning for birth.

    More specifically, many healthcare practitioners believe that misalignments in the pelvis can limit the space available for the baby’s development, potentially leading to complications such as breech positioning. Chiropractic adjustments are designed to help align the pelvis and surrounding ligaments, which could support optimal fetal positioning for a healthier and more natural delivery. Additionally, the American Pregnancy Association suggests that chiropractic care can be successful in preparing the pelvis for labor, potentially improving fetal positioning. If you have questions or concerns about this, it’s advisable to discuss them with your chiropractor or healthcare provider. Numerous studies have found the benefits of chiropractic for you and your baby.

    When should I consider seeking chiropractic care during pregnancy?

    You can seek chiropractic care at any point during your pregnancy. Many women find it beneficial to start chiropractic adjustments before discomfort or pain becomes severe. However, it’s never too late to begin care & our chiropractors can provide relief and support at any stage.

    Are there any specific chiropractic techniques used during pregnancy?

    Our Chiropractors use specialised techniques for pregnant women, such as the Webster Technique, which focuses on pelvic alignment. These techniques are designed to be safe and effective for expectant mothers.

    How often should I schedule chiropractic appointments during pregnancy?

    The frequency of chiropractic appointments can vary depending on your individual needs and the chiropractor’s recommendations. Some women choose to have regular adjustments throughout their pregnancy and after birth for recovery, while others may seek care on an as-needed basis. Our pregnancy chiropractors can help create a customised care plan based on your specific situation and goals by starting your free phone assessment now.

    Can chiropractic care help with breech babies or other positioning concerns?

    Expert prenatal chiropractic care, particularly the Webster Technique, is known for its success in helping with breech positioning. It involves specific adjustments to the pelvis that can encourage optimal fetal positioning. Discuss any concerns about your baby’s position with our pregnancy chiropractors with your free assessment now.

    What are the common conditions that pregnancy chiropractic care can address?

    Our pregnancy chiropractic care is a holistic approach that can assist with a wide range of conditions and discomforts experienced during pregnancy. This includes but is not limited to:

    • Low Back Pain: Chiropractic adjustments can provide relief from the common low back pain experienced during pregnancy due to postural changes and added weight.
    • Pelvic Pain: Chiropractors can address pelvic pain and discomfort by improving pelvic alignment and reducing strain on the pelvis.
    • Sciatica: Chiropractic care can alleviate sciatic nerve pain, which often occurs due to pressure on the sciatic nerve.
    • Neck and Shoulder Pain: Postural changes can lead to neck and shoulder discomfort, which chiropractors can help alleviate.
    • Headaches: Chiropractic adjustments may reduce the frequency and severity of headaches during pregnancy.
    • Hip Pain: Chiropractors can address hip pain by ensuring proper alignment and reducing pressure on hip joints.
    • Breech Presentation: The Webster Technique, often used in pregnancy chiropractic care, may help with breech baby positioning.
    • Nausea: Our holistic chiropractic care during pregnancy can alleviate nausea by improving spinal alignment, reducing stress, enhancing blood flow, balancing hormones & promoting overall well-being.
    • Overall Discomfort: Chiropractic care can enhance overall comfort during pregnancy, contributing to a healthier and more enjoyable experience.
