Pregnancy Chiropractic in Mandurah

Adjusting pregnant womanDr David Minns and Dr Grace Beavington have a passion for helping moms-to-be explore the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy. Chiropractic offers a healthy alternative for women searching for answers to their headaches, body aches and pains, and those looking to better prepare their body for birth.

Chiropractic can be a promising option for pregnant moms looking for alternative, holistic care.

Prepare Your Body for Birth

During pregnancy, your body is going through many changes. It is expanding to support a new life, and that means changes in your pelvic region including your hips, your abdominal muscles, the curvature of your back, and your hormones.

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps women retain function at optimum levels, and as pain-free as possible.

When the pelvis, which houses the child, is functioning correctly, it stands to reason the unborn child will have a better environment to thrive in. With a properly functioning pelvis, the process of delivery is easier. Also, it has been reported anecdotally that the first pregnancy is much easier and akin to a second pregnancy when chiropractic has been part of the process.

Dr Minns has adjusted hundreds of pregnant women since he started his practice. He feels so strongly about the benefits of chiropractic for pregnant women that he has adjusted his wife throughout her two pregnancies.

Gentle Adjustments for Pregnant Patients

As Dr Minns and Dr Beavington do for other patients, they have several different methods of chiropractic adjustments they can use to help pregnant moms thrive.

The Thompson table, which is used for patients of all ages presenting with various pain or discomfort, can also be used for pregnant patients easily without pressure on their abdomens. Our team will do whatever we can to make the adjustments as comfortable as possible.

There are no x-rays done during pregnancy, but otherwise, an appointment during pregnancy is similar to any other appointment. You’ll be greeted, undergo a thorough consultation and a journey back through your health history. Then a complete chiropractic, orthopaedic and neurological examination will help our team determine what the exact nature of your complaint is and if chiropractic would be beneficial.
