Can Chiropractic Care Benefit You During Pregnancy?
I first came to Dr. Myers in the 28 th week of my second pregnancy because of severe shooting pain. I had also experienced these pains in the final weeks of my first pregnancy. I feel very strongly that the chiropractic treatments that I received from Dr. Myers were solely responsible for the elimination of these horrible pains, and most importantly saved me from another C-section”. – H.M.
The answer is Yes!
Accumulated stress and trauma during life may cause shifts in the pelvis that women carry into pregnancy. Changes that occur during pregnancy often increase pelvic and spinal imbalance.
Let’s face it, pregnancy, though wonderful, is uncomfortable at best. From the moment you conceive and throughout the remainder of your pregnancy, the body makes many amazing changes…it’s obvious that as the baby grows, your center of gravity changes, and increased stress and pressure is placed on your spine, affecting your lower back, pelvis and hips.
Imbalance in the pelvis affects the shape of the uterus and the position of the baby as it grows. These imbalances cause pain in the mother and increase stress on the growing fetus.
Chiropractic Care during pregnancy can be very helpful…
- Chiropractic care can increase comfort during your final trimester and delivery
- It can help reduce the need for pain medication
- It can help shorten labor time
- Relieve back pain during pregnancy
- Help lessen the likelihood of labor in the back
- Helps reduce postpartum depression
- Reduces the need for forceps, episiotomies, epidurals and C-sections
The Webster Technique
Webster technique is a safe, gentle, yet extremely effective technique used during pregnancy by some doctors of chiropractic to reduce spinal and pelvic stress. Reduced stress during pregnancy means less pain and an easier delivery for mom and baby, because it allows the baby to move into the best position for birth. Additional information about Webster technique and other topics related to the benefits of Chiropractic during pregnancy can be found at International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
