PRENATAL CHIROPRACTIC CARE
At Vitalpoint Chiropractic, we understand the importance of the health of a pregnant woman, and we understand that the care we provide affects both mother and child. A properly functioning spine and nervous system are crucial to the well-being of the mother throughout pregnancy. A woman’s body goes through many changes during this time, and these changes can result in pain and discomfort. Expectant mothers commonly experience lower back pain, tailbone pain, groin discomfort, upper back and rib pain, radiating numbness and tingling down the legs, and neck pain.
Prenatal chiropractic care helps to support the structural changes that a woman experiences during her pregnancy. The effects of prenatal chiropractic care extend beyond helping with the common back and hip pain.
Webster’s technique is a chiropractic technique that was developed by Larry Webster, D.C. This technique is a specific chiropractic approach designed to release stress and subluxation on the sacrum. The sacral subluxation can cause surrounding soft tissues to tighten, stressing the mother’s pelvis further. Webster’s technique works not just on the boney structures but also with the soft tissues surrounding the pelvis to further support the mother’s spine.
Our chiropractors are certified in Webster’s technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. If you are suffering from pain during pregnancy, you should seek and receive the care you need. Your health and well-being are important, and you should not suffer.
