Chiropractic Care In Pregnancy

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is an essential ingredient to your prenatal care choices. A large percent of all pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy. This discomfort is due to the rapid growth of the baby and interference to your body?s normal structural adaptations to that growth.

Preexisting unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis become overtaxed during these times. The added stresses lead to discomfort and difficulty while performing routine, daily activities.

Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Specific adjustments eliminate these stresses in your spine, restore balance to your pelvis and result in greater comfort and lifestyle improvements.

How It Works?

As your baby develops, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth. So long as the pelvis is in a balanced state, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supportive suspension for the uterus. If your pelvis is out of balance in any way, these ligaments become torqued and twisted, causing a condition known as constraint to your uterus. This constraint limits the space of the developing baby.

Any compromised position for the baby throughout pregnancy will affect his or her optimal development. Conditions such as torticollis occur because a baby?s space was cramped in-utero.

Best Possible Position For Birth

If the woman?s uterus is constrained as birth approaches, the baby is prevented from getting into the best possible position for birth. Even if the baby is in the desirable head down position, often time?s constraint to the uterus affects the baby?s head from moving into the ideal presentation for delivery. The head may be slightly tilted off to one side or even more traumatically, present in the posterior position. Any baby position even slightly off during birth will slow down labor, and add pain to both the mother and baby. Many women have been told that their babies were too big, or labor ?just slowed down? when it was really the baby?s presentation interfering with the normal process and progression. Avoidable interventions are implemented during a natural process into an operative one.

?Doctors of Chiropractic work specifically with your pelvis and spine throughout pregnancy restoring a state of balance and creating an environment for an easier, safer delivery.

What Our Clients Say

Luis R.

I love coming here. The atmosphere is always fantastic! The energy and the care I receive are great. I always look forward to getting my adjustments from Dr. Sab and Dr. Jason. It is also a very zen place for registered massage therapy. My posture, breathing and Body Mass Index have improved beyond my expectations. Thank you so much for the care you provide our whole family.

Shelley L.

I started going to Live Well Family Health Centre on Centrepointe around 2 months ago. I had been going to another chiropractor in the city, but felt that it was not doing too much. My Daughter also goes to the center and recommended that I try it out. I first met with Dr. Jason, who listened to me about my aches and pains and then subsequently had a session with him. I also told him about my TMJ and he did this procedure that had never been done to me before, and the instant relief in my jaw was amazing. Dr. Jason and his staff are incredible. I do look forward to my appointments.

Live Well Family Health Centre is an awesome place for chiropractic, yoga and massage (those are just the services I have tried). Drs. Jay and Sabrina are amazing chiropractors and are, along with their staff, personable, caring and very skilled. Thank you to all of you!

I highly recommend LiveWell Family Health Centre. I went from sitting on the sidelines to back in racing form in one season. Already signed up for National Capital Race Weekend and I?m confident nothing will hold me back, thanks to Dr. Jason and his team.

I came to prevent scoliosis from getting worse. Awesome service, excellent results!

Katharine L.

Before coming to see Dr. Jason, I can?t remember a time when I could tip my head back and look at the ceiling, not even when I was a teenager. He fixed that, and a few other nagging problems, not to mention that I just generally feel better. Now, I actually function like a ?normal? person! Thanks Dr. J!
