Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

Pregnancy is a natural change in a woman's body, so it makes sense to choose a natural prenatal care choice.  Chiropractic is a natural, safe and effective way to care for a pregnant woman. There are many changes that happen during pregnancy and throughout labor and delivery. 

 

These changes can cause symptoms such as:

 

Lower Back Painpregnant belly

Neck Pain

Muscle aches

Headaches

Heartburn

Morning Sickness

Carpal Tunnel Symptoms

These symptoms are often due to interference (physical, chemical or emotional) in the nervous system or the spine which impedes the normal adaptations of the body during pregnancy.  Pre-existing, unnoticed imbalances cause your spine and pelvis to become overtaxed during these times.  These added stresses lead to discomfort and difficulty performing routine, daily activities.

Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy and can help your nervous system work at optimum efficiency during this important time.  Specific adjustments eliminate these stresses in the spine and restores balance to your pelvis and to the ligaments attached to your uterus.  There are 8 ligaments that are attached to your uterus that can cause uterine constraint on the baby.  This can cause long labors and breech presentations prior to delivery.  This problem is one of the main reasons why women need a C-section.

Dr. Martin is trained and experienced in performing a gentle, non-invasive procedure called the Webster Breech Turning Technique, which is very effective in removing restraints to the uterine and pelvic structures, and naturally allows a breech baby to move in the womb into a normal head down position.  The technique uses gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments and mild pressure on specific areas of the abdomen to release the constraint. Midwives and doulas that incorporate this technique have been found to have the lowest C-section rates among all other midwives and doulas.

For more information about how chiropractic can help you have a more comfortable pregnancy and birth, call Dr. Martin's office for a free consultation.

Testimonial

Receptionist was very sweet, office is clean, and Dr. Martin is very good and attentive to my needs. Even the receptionist offered tips to help me feel better. It was a quick and much needed adjustment. I felt instant relief and would definitely recommend this place to everyone. I already scheduled my next appointment!
