Many of my patients ask “Is it safe for me to continue chiropractic care during my pregnancy?” The answer is a booming “YES!” In fact, not only is it safe; but I highly recommend it to help with aches and pains.
Another great reason to see a Chiropractor during pregnancy…..IT’S DRUGLESS allowing for relief of the common symptoms associated with new postural strains.
When expecting, I recommend finding a chiropractor who is Webster Technique Certified. This chiropractic technique helps to correct sacral and pubic bone misalignment, and better balance pelvic muscles and ligaments. However, it can be used even with non-pregnant patients to help with low back and pelvic discomfort. Webster technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment for all weight-bearing individuals.
▪ It reduces tension in the pelvic joints and muscles and brings better alignment to the pelvic area thereby reducing pain.
▪ It Removes tension on the ligaments that support the pelvis, such as the round ligaments, sacrotuberous ligaments, dorsal sacroiliac ligaments and more.
Pregnancy and birth are special times in a woman’s life that she should enjoy and treasure, not something to just “get through.” I recommend finding a chiropractor who is committed to helping you have the best possible childbearing experience through holistic prenatal care.
