Chiropractors can help with a variety of conditions while pregnant. A recent study found that more than 75% of pregnant women experience pregnancy related low back and/or pelvic pain. Chiropractic is a safe, effective and drug-free way to manage these and other musculoskeletal complaints during pregnancy.
The most common symptoms we treat related to pregnancy are low back pain, sciatica nerve pain, sacroiliac pain, pubic symphysis pain and round ligament pain.
Our very own Dr. Becky is also Webster certified. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated. Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
