Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be a helpful way to decease pain and improve mobility. By delivering gentle adjustments to the spine, pelvis, with soft tissue work on surrounding ligaments, we can optimize pelvic alignment and decrease pain.
Our doctor is trained in Webster technique, a specific technique used during pregnancy to help with pelvic alignment.
As the baby grows, the increase in lumbar lordosis curvature can cause increase stress on the low back. To stay upright with the shift in center of gravity, the mid-back curvature also changes and can result in discomfort. Hip flexors and round ligaments increase in tension to support the growing fetus, resulting in discomfort and pain. Soft tissue releases are utilized to decrease discomfort and stress on the women’s body.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can:
- Studies show that women receiving care during their pregnancy may decrease labor times
- May optimize fetal position to allow for best possible position for birth
- Natural form of pain management during pregnancy
- Prepare the body for postpartum stressors
