Making Your Pregnancy Easier

As you await that joyful day when your family gets a new member, your body will go through a series of changes that can make the wait an uncomfortable one. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Having chiropractic care during pregnancy can ease many of the unpleasant symptoms of pregnancy, and it even makes the birth process easier.

Our chiropractor is an expert in prenatal chiropractic care techniques. Prenatal chiropractic care requires a special approach and specific training to properly and safely adjust the muscular-skeletal system during a woman's pregnancy.

Our chiropractor might incorporate the Webster Technique along with your treatment, which deals with aligning the spine in a specific method to reduce pain and pressure. Using this technique can help improve issues associated with misalignments that can put unnecessary pain and pressure on certain parts of the body during pregnancy.

What to Expect

When you make an appointment for prenatal care and chiropractic services, you can expect to have your medical history taken and also have a limited physical examination of the affected area.

This process is to help determine what issues are currently affecting your body and pregnancy. Once an assessment is made of your physical condition and medical history, a course of treatment will be recommended.

Treatment will be administered to provide immediate relief, and ongoing regularly scheduled chiropractic adjustment intervals will allow for continued improvement.

How Can Chiropractic Help During Pregnancy?

You have enough to do as you prepare to introduce your new bundle of joy to the world, and a quick recovery is ideal. The time spent recuperating from pregnancy can be lessened with help from your Chiropractor. Chiropractic care during pregnancy will help you feel better so you can focus on building a beautiful life for your baby.

The Webster Technique: Frequently Asked Questions

It's smart to include chiropractic treatment as a part of your prenatal care, and it's important that you choose a chiropractor near you who has the know-how required to support you and your growing baby. At Simmons Specific Chiropractic, our team provides the Webster Technique to help you feel your best as your baby grows.

What is the Webster Technique?

The Webster Technique is a safe, well-tested chiropractic care method that can boost the well-being of both mom and baby during pregnancy. The technique allows your chiropractor to relieve soft tissue tension, allowing you to get the comfort and rest that you need as your baby grows.

It involves a specific set of examinations and adjustments that aim to reduce the negative effects of body changes as a result of pregnancy. This technique was developed by a concerned father who witnessed distressing complications during the birth of his granddaughter. Undergoing this care will help make your pregnancy a more comfortable experience.

This technique can also help your baby move into the head-down position prior to their birth. Often, pelvic misalignment is the root cause of a baby being unable to turn into the natural birth position. When alignment to the pelvis is restored, your baby will have the room that it needs to make the turn on their own. If you're nearing your due date and your baby is in the breech position, working with a chiropractor who is certified in the Webster Technique is a non-invasive way to encourage your baby to turn.

How Does the Webster Technique Help?

The Webster Technique can help improve your pelvic balance and pelvic floor function, setting you up for the most comfortable childbirth experience possible. In addition to preparing your body for the birthing process, many pregnant women also find that the Webster Technique allows them to relax as their baby grows, as they get the relief that they need from hip, back, and sciatic nerve pain.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?

Good news: Chiropractic care is largely regarded as safe during pregnancy. Your chiropractor will go over your health history to make sure you do not have any conditions that could make chiropractic care unsafe for you and your growing baby.
