Are there times when your pregnancy is making you uncomfortable? As the baby grows and both mom’s and the baby’s bodies change, the discomfort can increase.
Chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy can help alleviate stressful symptoms like hip and pelvic pain. Using the right techniques, chiropractic care can even make the delivery safer and easier. Specifically, working with a chiropractor who is trained and certified in the Webster analysis and technique is a healthy and comfortable way to find relief and prepare for a potentially easier birth. I am Webster certified, which means I’m equipped to do the analysis and related adjustments. I love working with my prenatal patients using the things I’ve learned! Some of my patients, like Sydney, can tell they sleep much better after receiving this adjustment!
Here’s why the Webster Technique makes such a difference. When the pelvis is out of alignment, the ligaments connecting the pelvis to the uterus increase their tension and can distort the baby’s environment. The Webster Technique improves pelvic balance by beginning the process of realigning the sacrum. This may relieve the pull that creates tension in the uterus. Once that tension is removed, the baby can move more freely and assume its best possible position for birth.
Consistency in care is an important part of what makes the Webster Technique successful. You can start chiropractic care early in your pregnancy before you start experiencing discomfort. Most patients report feeling discomfort in the seventh or eighth month of pregnancy but starting early can prevent problems from even starting and make it a more enjoyable experience for you. It also doesn’t matter how many pregnancies you’ve already had. Whether this is your first or even your third pregnancy like my patient Paula, the Webster Technique can help you!
Are you pregnant and want to start on this path to a healthier pregnancy? While it’s true that starting early is better, it’s also never too late to start! If you receive at least three prenatal chiropractic adjustments with me, your first adjustment after birth for you is complementary. Your infant’s first appointment and adjustment are also complementary.
