Chiropractic during pregnancy pays specific attention to the enhancement of both the woman's nervous system and musculoskeletal system, thus lessening the pain and discomfort often associated with pregnancy and labor. Chiropractic utilizes techniques specific to the pregnant woman to address the hormonal changes, laxity of connective ligaments and shifts in weight-bearing structures during pregnancy.
We utilize the Webster Technique (www.icpa4kids.com), a pregnancy-specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant women that reduces interference to the nervous system and balances out the pelvic muscles and ligaments, not only to offer relief from discomfort but also to facilitate the mother's overall good health. Prenatal chiropractic care effectively removes uterine constraint in the expectant mother and allows the baby to move into the best possible position for birth.
Many women are referred from their OB/GYN or Midwife because research indicates that a woman who undergoes chiropractic care during pregnancy often times experiences less discomfort during delivery and can expect up to a 39% reduction in labor time. Come benefit from our pregnancy pillows (you can actually lay face down!!) and see why women are raving about chiropractic care during their pregnancy.
