Webster’s Technique (Optimal Fetal Position)

Pregnant womanThe position of the pelvis and sacrum play a large role in how a baby is most comfortably positioned in-utero.

Chiropractic care can help ensure proper alignment of the pelvis allowing the baby to have optimal room in-utero, making it easier to him/her to get into a head down position. Proper positioning of the baby can help eliminate the need for cesarean by utilizing Webster’s Technique.

Ease Pregnancy Symptoms

Chiropractic can help ease pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea, heartburn and swelling in feet and hands. Chiropractic adjustments help ensure optimal brain-body communication, and if there are misalignments in the spine, nerve communication can be interrupted, and symptoms begin to show.

Natural Relief from Lower Back Pain

Chiropractic care can help relieve lower back pain naturally and safely. It is estimated that over half of women will experience pregnancy related lower back pain. The reason behind this is, as the belly grows the center of gravity moves forward, and lower back curve increases putting more pressure on the joints of the lower back and pelvis. Chiropractic adjustments help keep the spine and pelvis in alignment, helping prevent and alleviate lower back pain.

Stronger Immunity

Your immune system is intricately connected to your nervous system. Proper function of the nervous system is imperative for proper function of the immune system. Pregnancy can take a toll on the immune system and extra stress during this time can make your body more vulnerable to illness. Chiropractors can help keep you healthy and feeling great during your pregnancy. Chiropractors can also help you with proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle changes which can all have a positive impact on you and your baby’s health.

Easier Labor and Birth

Chiropractic adjustments can help shorten labor and make the birth process easier. If the mother’s spine and hips are in proper alignment, and the nerve communication to the muscles of the pelvic floor and uterus are free and uninterrupted, labor and birth can progress more easily and possibly take less time than if there was an alignment issue.

Assist in Creating a Movement Plan

During pregnancy it’s important to change your exercise and movement focus from training to patterning. We want to focus on given space for the baby to grow and space to the nerves to have the most effective communication between the muscles and the nerves the innervate.

Choosing Chiropractic Care during pregnancy is one of the most important and life changing choices you can make for you and your baby! Chiropractic care is a safe, gentle and drug free way to keep your body functioning and feeling its best. Chiropractors can provide you with natural and holistic expertise to help ensure you have a well-rounded team of health professionals by your side.
