CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY
Pregnant mommas deserve some huge credit for carrying and bringing angels into our lives! Unfortunately, as a pregnancy progresses, these mommas tend to develop pain in their low back, neck & shoulder area, and in the pelvis in both the front and the back of the body. This pain is due to hormonal changes that accompany pregnancy, with the most prevalent being the hormone, Relaxin. This hormone causes ligaments to relax causing joints to fall out of aligment and cause pain. As a pregancy progresses and that adorable baby bump enlarges, it causes those mommas to adjust their postures, which in turn causes them pain. The curves that occur normally in the spine become much more pronounced during pregnancy and muscles then become imbalanced. Regular chiropractic care through pregnancy can keep the spine and pelvis aligned to keep the nerve impulses flowing freely to their destinations. Studies have shown that regular chiropractic care can decrease the pain and time during labor and delivery.
"Webster Technique" is a specicfic technique used for pregnant women to decrease their pain. The definition of this technique set by the ICPA is "a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment with the goal of it being to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and/or SI joint dysfuction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved." Ask your chiropractor about this special technique today!
