THROUGH ALL STAGES OF MOTHERHOOD, PEAK PHYSICAL & BIOMECHANICAL FUNCTION IS ESSENTIAL FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE
FEMALE & PREGNANCY CHIROPRACTIC
Nadine is a qualified Chiropractor and Pilates instructor and uses both these modalities to get the best health outcomes for her patients. The techniques she uses are gentle and modern. Nadine does not need to "crack" or manipulate bones to get a result. Instead she works with specific muscles according to the positioning of your joints.
Making sure all joints and muscles are functioning appropriately can help to:
Avoid and relieve discomfort commonly associated with pregnancy and nursing a baby;
Assist in optimising the alignment and tone of the birth canal to help the baby to exit your pelvis without obstruction; and
Aid in a speedy recovery post birth.
Areas of interest for assessment include:
Pelvic floor dysfunction;
Low back pain and sciatica;
Symphysis pubis dysfunction;
Abdominal Separation; and
Headaches and general aches and pains.
What does the treatment involve?
Nadine will ask many questions about you, your life and your wishes for your pregnancy and birth. She will perform a physical assessment to establish what changes or options you may want to consider.
Nadine always keeps a check on your posture, blood pressure, fundal height and urine as well as keeping an eye on other signs of negative change for example swelling, much like your obstetrician or midwife. Nadine utilises specialised pregnancy pillows, chairs and tables to ensure that you are 100% comfortable throughout the entire session. You should not feel any pressure on your stomach or breasts.
Specific muscles are released and mobilIsations are used to create optimal positioning of your joints in preparation for your growing baby and labour.

Her aim and philosophy is to assist women holistically though what is an extremely challenging, physically taxing, exciting and transforming stage of their life. Nadine does this through education; teaching women about their fertility and their bodies, how to nourish themselves before conception and during stages of pregnancy and about strategies to enhance the likelihood of their ideal birth.
