Why Should I Consider Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
The body goes through an incredible amount of physiological and endocrinological changes during and following a pregnancy. As the body changes, the curve in the back increases, the abdomen protrudes, the ligaments relax and the pelvis changes, to name just a few. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help the body adapt to these changes and can treat common musculoskeletal symptoms.
A chiropractor can also assist in establishing pelvic balance and alignment, which can help the baby get into the best possible position for delivery.
Webster's Technique and Breech Babies
The founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), Dr. Larry Webster, D.C., developed a now widely used specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment. Called Webster's Technique, this chiropractic technique is performed with the goal of reducing the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. (Sacral subluxation is a misalignment in the sacrum, which sits at the base of the spine, in between the pelvic bones. The sacroiliac (SI) joints attach the pelvis to the sacrum.)
