Our current medical system’s process for birth has produced a situation where we (the USA) have one of the highest rates of birth trauma and neonatal deaths among the top industrialized countries. As a parent we want to do everything possible to give our children their best start. Therefore, a birth process that is as close to its innate and biological design is most desirable.
Safe and natural chiropractic care can be a wonderful option for relief and well-being, for mother and baby as well as a source of knowledge and confidence for expecting mothers.
In our practice, we will not x-ray you while you are pregnant, yet you will receive a complete history, consultation and detailed examination. Our comprehensive exam uncovers the nervous system imbalances and interference, as well as, imbalances in the low back and pelvis ligaments (which suspend the uterus in the pelvis). Our doctors use very gentle and specific adjustments to correct the structural misalignments. We are trained and certified in the Webster technique.
The Webster Technique is a specific prenatal chiropractic analysis and adjustment performed by our doctors. The goal of this specific sequence of adjustment is to reduce the effects of joint dysfunction (caused by increased weight and increased hormone production). In so doing significantly improves the neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis. This has been proven to help with the overall pregnancy as well as proper fetal development.
A pregnant woman may be a candidate for chiropractic care if she has:
- Low back pain or sciatica. Sciatica is a pain in the buttock region and/or down the leg and can be very debilitating.
- Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction- Pain in the front groin area, the feeling of increased pressure.
