Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is crucial to the normal physiological function of both mom and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. Regular adjustments maintain and improve the balance and alignment of the spine and pelvis which allows for a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery for mom and baby. We focus on proper alignment and optimal communication between your brain and your body. This allows your body to do exactly what it was meant to - grow and deliver a healthy baby in an efficient and powerful way.
Developed by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the sacrum (tailbone). The goal of the adjustment is to reduce and relieve the effects of sacral and sacroiliac joint dysfunction, intra-uterine constraint, and pelvic distortions. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is promoted. Sacral subluxation can contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correcting this dysfunction may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
