Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy2024-04-01T08:52:04+00:00

Working in ‘Nappy Valley’ means that our Chiropractors are extremely confident and experienced in treating pregnant women. All of our Chiropractors are trained in a technique known as the ‘Webster Technique’, it is a method which assesses and corrects the pelvis and soft tissue structures (muscles and ligaments). This means a mother’s pelvis alignment is improved and the tension on her pelvic muscles and ligaments are reduced. Many pregnant women receive chiropractic care for reasons including:

  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica
 Pubic Pain
  • Breach presentation
  • To prepare for delivery

Research has shown this can improve comfort during pregnancy and an easier delivery may also be achieved. Please see the following link for more information about The Webster Technique

Our One Body Philosophy

At Northcote Chiropractic we practice the One Body Philosophy. You have one body. We are one team. So our Chiropractors and Massage Therapists work together to ensure a united approach to your healthcare.

Our lovely Massage Therapists are all very experienced in working with pregnant ladies, and as such, we feel that our massage therapies can enhance your care as this releases toxins and muscle tension. And as joints and muscles work along side each other, if there is a dysfunction within the joint then it will pull on the muscles and if there is dysfunction within the muscle it will affect the joint and movement patterns.

“I initially came to the Northcote Chiropractic in my early pregnancy as I had experienced a sudden and rather brutal onset of pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. Delphine immediately identified the problem as originating from much lower in my back and pelvis, emanating from longstanding misalignments which were being exacerbated by the fact that I was pregnant.

Her diagnosis was spot on: I felt significant improvement after the very first session. The neck and shoulder pain disappeared within days and hasn’t returned.
I have continued to see Delphine for adjustments throughout my pregnancy and I honestly don’t know how I would have managed without her! Any pains and niggles arising from my changing body shape are quickly identified and dealt with and as a result this pregnancy (which is my second) has been so much more comfortable than my first.

Delphines’s considerable skill and good humour, along with the general warmth and friendliness of everyone working at Northcote Chiropractic, makes every visit a real pleasure.”

We all experience them and they sort of just happen at different times as reactions to events but we don’t always understand them.
