Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself. Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective way to help restore proper structural alignment and movement, helping relax tight muscles, optimize function, ease pain and discomfort.

During pregnancy, chiropractic offers a multitude of benefits including restoring proper pelvic movement/balance, decreasing pain and discomfort, allowing women to have a more comfortable pregnancy and often an easier delivery. Although all chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women, there are those with a special interest in prenatal and postnatal care that undergo additional training such as Webster certification. You can be sure of this here at the Nest Health.

Pelvic Physiotherapy is a specialized service provided by registered, skilled and qualified physiotherapists who have additional training and certification to treat this region of the body. They take a full history, perform orthopedic assessments and most importantly, they perform an internal examination of the pelvic floor muscles (vaginal and sometime rectal, if needed). This internal exam is key in distinguishing between a weak or tight pelvic floor and providing the correct treatment plan. Pelvic physiotherapy is not exclusive to pregnant and postpartum women, although it is during those times that it is most often utilized.

If you’re pregnant and have never been assessed we encourage you to have at least one visit with our pelvic floor physiotherapist before your baby arrives. This can be a game changer and prevent a lot of problems from occurring.

If you just had you baby, we encourage you to wait till you’ve been cleared by your midwife or OB (usually around 6 weeks postpartum) before making an appointment with our pelvic floor physiotherapist.

We cannot stress enough how vital it is to restore proper function the muscles in the pelvic floor after pregnancy and childbirth. Pelvic floor dysfunction can contribute to pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, chronic pelvic pain and difficulties with bladder or bowel function. Many of these are preventable if addressed and treated early on.
