this period of rapid development, hormonal changes, the laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, may cause many pregnant women to experience low back pain.
chiropractic care can be quite helpful.
besides helping to relieve the discomfort many expectant mothers experience, chiropractic care helps normalize nervous system function. this is an important component of overall good health.
chiropractic care can be quite helpful during all stages of pregnancy.
women who give up smoking, eat healthy foods, and avoid alcohol during their pregnancies are to be congratulated. those receiving prenatal chiropractic checkups, demonstrate even more concern for their still developing babies.
one of my specialties is "webster technique". this is used on expectant mothers with a baby who is breech. this even helps with babies that are posterior.
for more, look on the breech baby page.
the benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed during delivery. many chiropractic patients report that their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than deliveries previous to chiropractic care.
modifications to the table and adjusting techniques are made during each stage of pregnancy.
