For many years, women have known about the benefit of chiropractic care during pregnancy. Thankfully this is becoming a more mainstream concept and medical doctors are now referring their pregnant patients to us for care. By creating and maintaining optimal spinal and pelvic alignment, moms find pregnancy to be more comfortable and are ultimately better prepared for a safer, easier birth. Of course, anytime is a great time for a more optimally functioning body. This is especially true when your body is being put under the stress of pregnancy. Pregnant mothers find their adjustments improve their pregnancy and make delivery easier for themselves and their baby. Many women have aches and pains through pregnancy and chiropractic is a great, drug-free way of managing those discomforts. Adjusting methods are always adapted to a patient’s size, weight, age, and current condition of health.
Our chiropractors utilize the Webster technique for pregnant patients. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of the sacral subluxation or SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
