During pregnancy, many changes will take place in order to create an optimal environment for the developing baby. The expectant mother's organs and systems must now provide for two, so it's crucial for the baby's healthy development that these systems are functioning properly. The influx of hormonal changes that occur within mother and baby are coordinated and controlled through the spine and nervous system. The mother's spine and pelvis undergo many changes in order to accommodate the growing baby, therefore, the risk for nerve interference and discomfort increases.
Chiropractic care helps women be as healthy as possible throughout the course of their pregnancy. Having your spine checked by a chiropractor ensures that your pelvis and spine are in alignment to allow adequate room for your baby to grow. A well-functioning nervous system allows a mother to combat many of the discomforts of pregnancy, rather than simply dealing with them. At United Chiropractic, we specialize in making sure your pregnancy is a pleasant experience and your body is ready for the big day! Chiropractic care has been proven to reduce labor time for first time moms by 25% as well as increase her comfort level both during pregnancy and childbirth.
Pediatric & Maternal Care
It is optimal to receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy so pelvic balance can be achieved and optimal function can be restored. Even women initiating chiropractic care in the second or third trimester can benefit greatly from regular chiropractic adjustments. Regardless of the stage of the pregnancy or the presentation of the infant, pelvic imbalances, intrauterine constraint, and maternal discomfort may be present. For this reason, chiropractic care using the Webster Technique is a wonderful adjunctive procedure for any pregnant mom. By making sure that all your muscles and joints are doing their very best to accommodate for the new biomechanical stresses being placed on them with your growing belly and changing body, we are able to ensure the safest and most comfortable situation for both mom-to-be and baby. Often times, this technique has been utilized to enable more room in the womb and less constraint, allowing for a baby in the breech presentation to turn on his own.
