Prenatal Chiropractic Care FAQs

How Common Are Pregnancy Aches and Pains?
Your body is doing hard work when you're pregnant, and it can be tough for your muscles and joints to keep up with the exponential growth of your baby. Often, pregnant women experience aches, pains, and muscle soreness that can interfere with both daily activities and sleep. We'll work with you to create a care plan that helps you get the relief you need. Of course, the safety of you and your baby will be paramount throughout the entire chiropractic treatment process.
What Is The Webster Technique?
The Webster Technique works to support your health during your pregnancy. At your appointments, your chiropractor will use the position of your feet to determine whether your pelvis is aligned. If it is, your chiropractor will perform care to help you remain in alignment. If it is not, your chiropractor will perform care that increases the likelihood that your pelvis will become aligned, decreasing the likelihood of aches and pains.
If you're nearing your due date and your baby is in the breech position, the Webster Technique may be able to help. Your chiropractor can use adjustments to create space for your baby to turn. If your baby is breech, your chiropractor can start working to create the space to help your baby turn a few weeks before your due date. Your chiropractor will work with you to determine whether this technique is a good fit for you and your baby prior to delivery. Many women report that The Webster Technique has worked to turn their baby from breech to vertex (head down) position.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
In the vast majority of cases, chiropractic care is a safe, effective option for pregnant women with uncomplicated pregnancies. When you come to our office for prenatal chiropractic care, we'll explain any risks of treatment. We know that your growing baby is your top priority, and it's important to us that you feel completely comfortable with your chiropractic care plan.
