How Prenatal Chiropractic Can Help

Prenatal chiropractic care is a type of chiropractic care that is specifically designed for pregnant women. This type of care can offer a variety of benefits, including relief from pain, better birthing position for the baby, reduced labor time, and reduced stress levels throughout the body.

Prenatal chiropractic care can help to ease back pain by aligning the spine and pelvis through sacrum adjustments. This can help to take the pressure off of the back and other joints. One thing that our pregnant patients like best about visiting us is that we use Webster technique, a chiropractic adjustment technique specific for pregnant women.

Webster Technique

Webster technique allows a patient to lie face down to receive their adjustment-something many pregnant women love! These moveable tables have an open space for your growing belly, so the baby will not be affected one bit. Women often feel relief and relaxed simply by getting to lay in this position that’s usually off limits.

This technique can help to reduce stress on the hips and spine by realigning the pelvis. This can help to take the pressure off of the uterus and alleviate stress on the nervous system, as well as create the best space for the baby to grow. This technique is often utilized on pregnant women whose baby may be in a breech position, as it can help turn the baby and get him or her into optimal birthing position.
