Prenatal Chiropractic Care

During pregnancy, women often experience neck or back pain due to weight gain and altered biomechanics. Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps keep the spine and pelvis in balance and alignment.

Chiropractors trained to work with pregnant women may use tables that adjust for a pregnant women’s body and apply techniques that avoid unnecessary pressure on the abdomen.

The Webster Technique is a specific adjustment for pregnant mothers that reduces interference to the nervous system, and balances the pelvis, muscles and ligaments. It helps relieve intrauterine pressure and allows the fetus to move more freely.  It is specifically useful in assisting in turning breech babies.

    Some of the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:

    • A healthier pregnancy
    • Reduced symptoms of nausea
    • Reduced labor and delivery time
    • Reduced neck and back pain
    • More optimal fetal positioning and reduced risk of cesarean delivery
