Brooklyn Chiropractic Care is Safe Enough for Expectant Mothers

While being pregnant is often an exciting and joyful time of life, there are inevitable physical effects that women must go through. Unfortunately, for many women who are expecting, pregnancy can be an extremely uncomfortable experience.
From hormonal changes to morning sickness, these changes can manifest early in the first trimester. Mood swings and strange food cravings are bad enough; however, as the baby grows and develops, the woman’s body is inevitably impacted.
Gentle Chiropractic Can Ease the Physical Demands of Pregnancy
During pregnancy, the bones, ligaments and muscles shift, change and can become unstable. These changes are facilitated by a hormone called relaxin. Some of the bodily changes that can be experienced include:
- Spinal misalignment
- Pelvic alterations
- Increased lumbar spinal curvature
- General discomfort
Ideal spinal health and chiropractic treatment focuses on several key areas. At the top of the spine is the C1 vertebra, also known as the atlas. If this area is out of alignment, the head, neck, and even brain function can be affected.
The pelvic and sacrum areas of the body help to anchor the spinal structure. If any of these bones and their related tendons, ligaments, nerves or muscles are out of alignment, tremendous discomfort can result. A misaligned pelvis can also be dangerous to an unborn child, as they can move into a breech position.
The Webster Technique Facilitates Optimal Pelvic Alignment
The Webster Technique, also called The Webster In-Utero Constraint Technique, can help tremendously. It is a form of gentle chiropractic care developed by Dr. Larry Webster to properly balance the pelvis and reduce stress on the uterus. Dr. Webster developed his Webster Technique after his adult daughter had to endure labor while her baby was in a breech position.
Gentle chiropractic care from our Wayne chiropractor can be immensely helpful for pregnant women or anyone desiring a more gentle chiropractic approach. Ongoing general chiropractic care and prenatal chiropractic care can be invaluable to pregnant women. When the neck, spine, back, sacrum and pelvis are all working together properly, the result is a far more comfortable pregnancy and a healthier, happier mother and child.
