Sheppard Chiropractic Centre is putting an end to three myths about pregnancy and chiropractic care.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes!  Chiropractors are trained to safely perform adjustments on pregnant women.  And chiropractic care is very beneficial during pregnancy.

Do pregnant women need a chiropractor?

Carrying a baby places unique stresses on your body.  Chiropractic care will alleviate the stress on your spine and relieve discomfort.  It will help to control morning sickness.  Chiropractic care can potentially ease your delivery.

Chiropractic care, like a nutritious diet, moderate exercise, and avoiding tobacco and alcohol, is an important part of prenatal care.

Is there a specific point in my pregnancy when I should stop chiropractic care until after the baby is born? 

Chiropractic care can safely be given throughout your pregnancy.  The final decision about your treatment—pregnant or otherwise—is always yours.

You may find chiropractic care particularly helpful late in the pregnancy when your spine is under the greatest stress.

Do you have a friend or family member who is pregnant?  If so, make sure she knows what chiropractic care can do for her during her pregnancy.  And if you’re pregnant, make sure to give us a call so we can help you experience these benefits.  You can reach Sheppard Chiropractic Centre at (506) 635-8182 or (506) 847-7172.  We would be honoured to assist you.
