In this amazing time of rapid development, hormonal changes, laxity of ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, Chiropractic care can be quite helpful.
Besides relieving the discomfort many expectant mother's may experience, chiropractic care helps to normalize nerve system function for a less stressful pregnancy. Having your spine checked also ensures proper positioning of the pelvis, which allows for optimum space for your baby to grow and wiggle around. The benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed with shorter and more comfortable labor time. What woman wouldn't be excited about that!
Regular chiropractic adjustments, along with other healthy habits, create the best opportunity for a healthy, happy baby.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment, which reduces nerve system stress, and improves pelvic biomechanical function. Its purpose is to detect and correct sacral subluxation and S/I joint dysfunction. This technique is great for pregnant women with low back and hip pain. The goal of the adjustment is to restore normal function of the pelvis and improve mom's comfort through pregnancy and prepare for a safer and easier birth. Dr. Kim will provide pregnancy pillows and use a light and specific contact adjustment technique to ensure you are completely comfortable during your adjustment.
