Chiropractic care for pregnancy (Webster technique) and post partum care
Many of us know that chiropractic is the best form of care for low back pain, including sciatica. What surprises many of my patients, is learning that those same nerve roots are responsible for the health of our internal organs as well—organs we can’t feel, like the uterus, bladder, small and large intestines, and ovaries. During pregnancy there are millions of different hormonal and chemical changes occurring in the mother and developing baby, all of which are orchestrated by the central nervous system.
Regular chiropractic care keeps the central nervous system free from interference, restoring proper nerve supply to these vital organs, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Regular visits prepare the body to be strong, balanced, and as adaptive as possible throughout pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum recovery care.
At this clinic, Dr. Emerald uses the Webster technique for expecting moms—a pregnancy specific technique for balancing the pelvis to reduce stress and discomfort during the changes of pregnancy as well as structural rebuilding for post partum care-one of the most important, yet most overlooked, phases of care.
