Pregnancy Care and Webster Technique
During pregnancy, a woman experiences many mental, physical, and mental changes. Most of these changes are beautiful and amazing, but as the belly grows and structures shift, pain is common. Prenatal chiropractic care can reduce pain, balance the pelvis, and result in shortened labour times. By aligning the pelvis and spine and reducing muscular and ligamentous tension, chiropractic care prepares the pelvis for an easier delivery and birth. Today, more and more women are choosing chiropractic care for a safe, effective approach to a healthy, drug-free pregnancy.
Common issues that respond well to prenatal chiropractic care include:
· Low back pain
· Hip pain
· Pubic symphysis dysfunction
· Round ligament pain
· Leg and feet pain
· Mid-back/rib pain
· Reduction of labour and delivery times
· Lower the potential for cesarean and breech delivery
Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and treatment with the goal of optimizing pelvic function through proper alignment and reduction of tension. Gentle releases are used to restore balance and stability, which will reduce the mother’s symptoms, create optimal space for the baby, and encourage an uncomplicated labour and delivery.
