The backbone of health


Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Chiropractic care is possible throughout all stages of pregnancy. It is gentle and safe. The health benefits have been demonstrated in many clinical studies.


In one of the studies, conducted by Irvin Hendryso M.D., a member of the American Medical Association board of trustees, it was shown that women who received chiropractic adjustments in their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver children with greater comfort. Also well-known orthopedist Per Freitag M.D., conducted a hospital study that incorporated chiropractic adjustments during the patients pregnancy. He found that the need for painkillers during delivery was reduced by half.


At Glasgow Chiropractic we pride ourselves in having numbers of families under care and in particular Mums-to-be. A woman’s body goes through a great many changes during pregnancy and can be put through many different stresses. Chiropractic care has been shown to help make the pregnancy an even more enjoyable and smoother process for women by helping them to restore the balance to their pelvic muscles and ligaments. This then leads to safer and easier deliveries for both mother and baby, with less stress for everyone involved.
