Mothers who are adjusted during pregnancy typically have less symptoms during pregnancy, maintain health for themselves and baby, and have healthier, safer deliveries. Many changes in hormones and biomechanics occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy. As the baby grows the mother’s body has to change to accommodate the developing fetus. The change in biomechanics alters the way gravitational forces are distributed throughout the mother’s spine and pelvis leading to subluxations and stress on the nervous system. Pelvis distortions can influence the way the baby lays within the womb, as well as affect the delivery of the child.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Help relieving headaches, neck, midback, and lower back pain
- Help relieving numbness and tingling in arms/legs (sciatica)
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Helping symptoms of morning sickness
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Prevent a potential cesarean delivery
Dr. Jessica is certified in the popular Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the pelvis. This adjustment reduces nervous system stress and is used to detect and correct sacral subluxation and joint dysfunction of the other pelvic bones. Its purpose is to improve functional movement within the pelvis to allow for proper space for the growing fetus.
