We are so excited for you! Whether it is your first or sixth pregnancy, we are here to help you along the way!
As any healthcare provider will tell you, pregnancy is a time when a woman's body goes through some major changes. Not only is her body creating a new life, but it is also preparing to deliver that life into the world. This can put a lot of strain on the spine and nervous system, which is why chiropractic care during pregnancy is so important. Chiropractic care helps to ensure that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment, which helps to reduce pain and discomfort during pregnancy and delivery. In addition, chiropractic care can help to improve the function of the nervous system, which is essential for the development of your baby. Ultimately, chiropractic care during pregnancy is an important part of maintaining mom's health and comfort during this special time.
Webster is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nervous system. This technique was developed by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Federation of Chiropractors in Pediatrics, in order to improve nerve system function in pregnant women. When applied properly, the Webster Technique balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus, and allows optimal fetal positioning.
There are many reasons why pregnant women may seek out chiropractic care, including but not limited to: relief from back pain, sciatica, headaches, neck pain, nausea/vomiting, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, pubic symphysis pain, round ligament pain, diastasis recti (abdominal separation), and stress reduction. In addition to providing relief from common discomforts experienced during pregnancy, regular chiropractic adjustments can also help to prevent potential complications such as intrauterine constraint (restriction of the baby’s movement within the uterus), breech presentation (when the baby is positioned bottom-down instead of head-down), and cephalopelvic disproportion (when the baby’s head is too large to pass through the mother’s pelvis). For these reasons, it is recommended that expectant mothers receive chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies. We can also work alongside your pediatrician and OBGYN.
