Chiropractic care can help improve overall health and wellness during your pregnancy and throughout motherhood. Pregnancy specific chiropractic treatments combined with strengthening rehabilitation therapy can provide an optimal foundation for your baby to grow and prepare your body for delivery.
Chiropractic Care and Physical Medicine for Pregnancy
As your body undergoes 40 weeks of amazing changes, the center of gravity will change in your body. This will lead to additional pressure mounting in the spine, lower back, hips, and pelvis. Chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive method to help make this time and your delivery easier.
At Aligned Modern Health our chiropractic physicians are passionate about women’s health and trained in the Webster Technique, a specialized assessment and treatment technique that facilitates pelvic stability and proper function throughout pregnancy.
The Webster Technique addresses joints, muscles and ligaments while offering optimal pelvic and fetal positioning, keeping you comfortable and giving your developing baby the space it needs to grow. The treatment is a safe, non-invasive approach for back, pelvic and hip pain. It’s also used to help prevent obstructed or delayed labor (called dystocia) and has been known to help address breech and posterior positioning of the baby.
After delivery, chiropractic care and targeted exercises can help you with postpartum recovery. Chiropractic Physical Medicine can aid in regaining musculoskeletal strength and balance after childbirth.
As a new parent, your body’s daily function transitions into new and repetitive patterns of movement. Chiropractic care can relieve and correct neck, back, and hip pain that may be triggered by caregiving for both mom and dad.
