Benefits Of Chiropractic Care For Pregnant Women
Pregnancy involves three areas of the body: the abdomen, pelvis, and spine. Remember that weight is sitting on all three, and they can be knocked out of alignment. Pain can result. Additionally, the baby can't get positioned properly for optimal growth or birth.
A chiropractor will keep the pelvic area aligned for the optimal development of the baby as well as its trip down the birth canal. She will keep the spine aligned to prevent pain as the baby grows alongside it. If the baby is not in the correct position, it can make it more difficult to have a natural birth without complications. Adjustments to the three areas give moms-to-be a healthy pregnancy and prevent possible C-sections.
Chiropractors are well versed in the Webster Technique. This technique allows adjustments to the mother to provide optimal positioning for the child. If the mom didn't have this adjustment, the baby could be a breech presentation not to mention failing to grow properly.
