Pregnancy and Townsville Chiropractic care

This month at The Physio Movement it is women’s health month, and we thought it would be a good opportunity to talk about pregnancy and chiropractic care.

During pregnancy your body changes as it nurtures your growing baby, and can often place strain on your posture and spine. Chiropractic care during pregnancy at TPM is a gentle treatment to assist aches and pains and pelvic alignment.

While there are many symptoms associated with pregnancy, at our Townsville chiropractic clinic we work to assist with the most common symptoms including;

As a new addition to the Townsville Chiropractic team we spoke to Dr Jack who focuses on pre and postnatal care with a clinical interest in paediatrics Chiropractic.

How did you get into womens health chiropractic care and why do you believe mums should consider chiropractic care during pregnancy?

“I think I ultimately got more involved in pre- and post-natal chiropractic because I could see the gap. Earlier in my career as a rural working solo practitioner I would have mothers come to me with specific needs and issues and I wouldn’t necessarily know what it was they exactly needed to best suit them in their issue at that time. This drove me to further my understanding and seek opportunities to educate myself further in this field specifically.

I find it particularly rewarding treating mums and kids. Chiropractic care can be utilised to benefit all people’s quality of life and personal performance. However, in pregnancy we see a particular range of conditions that can be treated with chiropractic care easily, effectively and most of all safely. As a practitioner there is no better feeling than being able to help mothers through these potentially unsettling and unnerving moments.

We use a range of techniques to do this; Manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue therapy and most of all rehabilitation! In my experience active mobility and strengthening throughout the term of your pregnancy will be a sure-fire method to ensure a smooth delivery and even smoother 4th trimester.

Antenatal chiropractic is comparatively much more multifaceted and wholistic when compared to many other approaches in health care. I believe It is for this reason we see such lasting results with patients throughout their time with us.”
