How can Chiropractic add comfort during pregnancy?

More mothers are discovering the essential role that chiropractic care plays throughout pregnancy in ensuring a healthier pregnancy and an overall easier birth. Chiropractic care can relieve and even prevent common discomforts experienced in pregnancy.


  • Relief and reduction of low back pain, sciatica, and pelvic pain
  • Relief of shoulder blade pain, rib pain and upper back pain
  • Relief of neck pain and headaches
  • Relief of heartburn, nausea, constipation, indigestion, shortness of breath, frequent urination
  • Optimizing pelvis alignment to facilitate the baby’s comfort and growth in utero
  • Preventing the likelihood of intrauterine constraint and resulting poor fetal positioning (ie breech) via Webster Technique
  • Restoring pelvic balance to potentially reduce the need for intervention during delivery
  • Ensures proper nervous system function which improves a mother’s ability to birth naturally
  • Shorter labour time and more pleasant, easier, safer deliveries

Dr. Lardi will work specifically with your spine and pelvis throughout your pregnancy to restore a state of balance, create a comfortable environment for your baby in utero, and help set the stage for a potentially easier, quicker and safer delivery.

Is Chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Absolutely! Pregnancy may be one of the best times to receive chiropractic care – both mother and baby can benefit. Chiropractic techniques used during pregnancy are very gentle, and are adapted to a mother’s size, weight and condition. Special pillows are also used to ensure a comfortable and relaxing experience. You and your baby’s continued safety and comfort are foremost in our care,

She has been a life saver throughout my pregnancy. As new issues surfaced such as extreme heartburn, tail bone and pelvic pain she worked with my growing body to relive and manage these issues. So instead of focusing on the discomfort of being pregnant I am able to enjoy my pregnancy comfortably.Michelle M.

When is the Ideal Time to Begin Pre-Natal Chiropractic Care?

The ideal time to be evaluated and begin chiropractic care is before pregnancy, or in its early stages.
Any pre-existing imbalances in your spine and pelvis become stressed during pregnancy, resulting in discomfort and pain (ie. back/pelvic pain, sciatica etc). These imbalances can also negatively affect the progress and duration of labour. Addressing imbalances early on will allow for a more pleasant pre-natal and birth experience.

More importantly, poor pelvic alignment will affect your baby’s comfort and growth in utero, which may lead to nerve dysfunction or foetal mal position (ie.breech). Correcting pre- existing pelvic imbalances early will create a comfortable environment for your baby from the start, preventing the likelihood of poor positioning (ie. breech).
