Chiropractic for Pregnant women

During pregnancy your body will go through an incredible amount of physical and hormonal changes. Prenatal (before birth) Chiropractic for Pregnant women can help the body adapt to these changes and maintain a happy and healthy pregnancy.

  • Chiropractic for Pregnant women

  • ICPA Trained “Baby Chiropractors”

  • 17 Years experience treating kids of all ages

Benefits include:

  • Less Headaches & Neck Pain. The loss of the normal cervical (neck) curve as a result of postural changes in pregnancy may lead to headaches and neck pain. Both of which are leading reasons why people see chiropractors in the first place; whether they are pregnant or not!
  • Safer Delivery. Chiropractors work specifically with the pelvis during pregnancy, restoring a state of balance and creating an environment for an easier & safer delivery. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with Chiropractic for pregnant women and recognise this area of expertise through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) advanced Chiropractic Webster Certification. Our Chiropractic Doctors are ICPA members.
  • Less Back Pain. As your baby grows & your womb stretches it pulls your centre of gravity forwards and this can put a strain on your back. Studies show that 84% of women who received chiropractic care during pregnancy felt a relief in back pain.
  • Optimal Foetal Position. Chiropractors trained in Chiropractic for pregnant women can help to detect, prevent and correct fetal malpositions. This is very different to the medical manipulation of the baby; it is done with very gentle touch on your pelvis and is used so that you don’t go so far as to need the medical intervention.
  • Shorter Labour & Delivery Times. A study showed that women who had regular chiropractic through their first pregnancy had a 24% reduction in their labour times. Plus those having their second or third baby reported a 39% reduction in labour times.
  • Healthy Mother: Healthy Baby. Chiropractic for pregnant women helps to ensure a healthy immune system for both mother and child, whose immune systems are intimately linked during pregnancy. We aim to help keep you happy, relaxed and pain-free: and this really does benefit your baby.

Once your bump has landed, we would also love to check your baby for free… It would be our honour!

The Dorsi Spinal Institute

  CLINIC HOURS

Monday 2:00 – 7:00
Tuesday & Thursday 8:00 – 7:00
Friday 8:00 – 2:00

Our principal Chiropractor Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has over 20 year experience in healthcare and has developed the unique Dorsi Method that has a waiting list for other practitioners to learn.

Rather than treating everyone the same, our goal is to find the cause of your problems and really understand WHY they have happened. Your treatment plan will be unique to you. The hands-on treatment you receive will be provided by the Chiropractor or Osteopath and a qualified sports therapist. The Chiropractor or Osteopath will take overall responsibility for your care and provide any recommendations plus the spinal manipulation component of your care. Your sports therapist will work on the soft tissues by providing deep tissue massage, traction or stretching and will take care of your rehabilitation: your homework (if necessary.)

The clinic offers a state of the art diagnostic suite including Colour Ultra HD and 3D diagnostic ultrasound and a GE Direct Digital X-ray system due to be installed in early 2019. We also use the latest posture scanners using Infra-red imaging to build a photo-realistic postural avatar of your body. From this scan we can assess your posture, show you where your body is dysfunctional, identifying potential causes for the condition to relapse and most importantly, we re-assess you at regular intervals during your treatment plan without any additional radiation.

Our treatment protocols are ultra specific to your body and may include traction sessions stretching your spine in the exact opposite (Mirror-Image) to its usual incorrect position. You will have a personalised rehabilitation plan designed by our Masters Degree Level trained Rehab Consultant.
