Prenatal/Pregnancy & Pediatric Care
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
During pregnancy, it is common for the low back and pelvis to become misaligned. This can occur during any stage of pregnancy, especially as baby grows and your center of gravity changes. Often, this works its way up into the midback and ribs, as well as the neck and upper back. This can lead to pain in these areas, as well as other symptoms such as headaches, carpal tunnel, pelvic pain, tailbone/sacrum pain, and sciatic/leg pain.
Throughout pregnancy, expecting mothers experience a considerable change in their spinal and pelvic alignment and balance. As the baby grows, the spinal curves shift to accommodate that growth. Today, more and more women are searching for alternatives to pain medications and drugs during pregnancy. By gently aligning the spine and pelvis, Prenatal Chiropractic Care fits perfectly into today’s mothers’ goals of giving their babies the best chance for a safe, healthy, and natural delivery.
The Webster Technique is a specific technique that is designed to help balance the sacrum and pelvis during pregnancy. Webster Technique follows a specific analysis and gentle diversified adjustment that is safe and comfortable for mothers-to-be, and promotes improved neuro-biomechanical function of the pelvis. Benefits of this technique include creating an optimal environment for proper fetal positioning in-utero, faster labor and delivery times, and reduced pain experienced during labor and delivery.
