Prenatal/Postnatal Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise through Webster Certification.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated. Families are seeking out chiropractors, like Dr. Beckley, who are proficient in this technique as a way to support a more comfortable, safer, and easier birth.
Prenatal chiropractic care can provide relief from aches and pains, morning sickness, heartburn, and acid reflux. Adjustments during pregnancy help ensure that your body is properly aligned and in the correct position to deliver the baby as naturally as possible. These adjustments are safe and effective for you and the baby. Adjustments may also assist in helping reduce the time of labor and delivery, as well as reduce the likelihood of breech and C-section deliveries.
Postnatal chiropractic care is also important, especially in the eight weeks following delivery. The mother’s ligaments will begin to tighten and might cause additional discomfort. A new mother’s body has to adjust to new challenges and routines, like constant lifting, reaching, and nursing. Continuing chiropractic care can help your body heal faster and ensure that the nervous system is functioning at its best.
Chiropractic can get a woman’s body back in line, no matter the cause, without the use of pharmaceuticals or surgery. Are you expecting? Call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Beckley, a Webster Certified chiropractor!
