Services

As a CHIROPRACTOR I apply hands on manual therapy to facilitate balance in your body.

Balance facilitates comfort, creates space for your baby to move into a favourable fetal position and allows suppleness in your soft tissues in preparation for labour. Being balanced will then help you recover optimally postnatally, as you adjust to motherhood and the new adventures that come with it.

Treatment Options

 I can treat and help with:

  • Pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain

  • Lower back pain and sciatic pain 

  • Neck, jaw, shoulder pain, headaches

  • Trunk related dysfunction (thoracic spine and ribs)

  • Round ligament pain

  • Fetal malposition including breech and posterior presentation (knowledge in Webster techniques, Spinning Babies and Optimal Maternal Positioning)

  • Preparing the body for labour by body balancing and encouraging suppleness and responsiveness in soft tissues. (This means less resistance for the baby during the labour process - that is, an easier birth!)

  • Abdominal wall and pelvic floor dysfunction including Diastasis Recti, prolapse, incontinence, dyspanuria. 

  • Post natal recovery including breastfeeding mechanics/difficulties and exercise prescription 

  • Breastfeeding support including positioning and latch

  • Newborn and infants for plagiocephaly, torticollis, head tilt preference, feeding difficulties, tongue ties.
