Dr. de Castro
Can I see a Chiropractor while I'm pregnant?
Short answer, yes!
Treating pregnant patients is one of my favourite things to do. So I have had my fair share of questions! Let's go through some together
Is Chiropractic safe?
Yes, we alter how we treat during pregnancy so that everything is safe for you any baby.
What kind of things can you help with?
Pretty much anything muscle, nerve or joint related. Got sciatica that's getting worse as you grow? I can help. SI joint pain with walking? That too. Headaches? Super common in pregnancy, let's work on it!
What sort of things to you do during a treatment?
A lot of things! We can use cupping, instrument assisted soft tissue, muscle release and trigger point therapy. We can also continue with adjustments, though they look a little different for pregnant patients. Exercises also play a big role in how I like to treat!
How do I lie on the table?
I've got pregnancy pillows! It makes it easy to lay face down throughout your entire pregnancy
Do I have to come back about I give birth?
You don't have to, but I highly recommend it. It's good to get looked at after labour to see how the process may have changed things, and I can help support you throughout the 4th trimester to heal and keep yourself moving. I can also treat baby!
