Chiropractic for Pregnancy and Newborns
Pregnancy is a beautiful time for women. Having a child is a gift that can never be replaced, and brings a new joy to life. It’s also an often-uncomfortable time, as your body changes almost daily and hormones and shifting weight create issues with posture, putting extra strain on your spine. Many women write off the pain and discomfort as just a normal part of the process, but there is a solution — chiropractic adjustments by a qualified chiropractor like Dr. Rhonda K. Lisowe can alleviate this discomfort.
Chiropractic for Pregnancy
Women who receive chiropractic for pregnancy find a wealth of benefits. Their discomfort is greatly reduced, and their pregnancy often is overall much healthier as it allows the baby to sit in a proper position within the womb. It can reduce labor time by ensuring that the pelvis is aligned properly for childbirth. Adjustments can help to address a range of pregnancy-related issues, including, but not limited to:
Restless leg syndrome.
The Webster Technique
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis & adjustment that reduces nervous system stress, balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function in pregnancy and birth.
As defined by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), the Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nervous system, balances out pelvic muscles and ligaments which in turn removes torsion to the uterus, reducing the potential for intra-uterine constraint and allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
How The Webster Technique Can Help During Pregnancy
- William’s Obstetrics tells us that difficult labor is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic imbalance, and baby Mal-presentation
- Doctors of chiropractic are seeing that sacral adjustments may improve uterine function, balance the pelvis and reduce tension to pelvic muscles and ligaments
- When balance is restored to the mother’s pelvis, her uterus and pelvis function better. This reduces undue stress to mom’s ligaments and muscles making pregnancy and birth more comfortable.
- Pelvic balance also allows the optimal space for baby to grow throughout pregnancy.
What’s in it for Mom?
- Improves nervous system function
- Balances pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments
- In normalizing physiology, it allows for a better pregnancy and birth
- “Side Effects” may include less low back pain, better movement, more comfort
- May optimize baby’s ability to get into the best possible position for birth
Many women have difficulty getting pregnant. Some indications exist that suggest chiropractic care may help with fertility problems. When you suffer a spinal subluxation, this can actually affect your body’s ability to get pregnant. The right adjustments may help you to conceive by getting your body back to working the way it should.
Chiropractic for pregnancy doesn’t end with childbirth. After you have your baby, you need proper rest and relaxation to recuperate. Chiropractic care can help you stay in shape to heal more quickly. Many women suffer from spinal misalignments resulting from the birthing process. At E320 Chiropractic, we can help you correct your spine’s curvature, which will help your nervous system to properly restore your body which can improve your mood, increase your energy, and regulate your hormones.
Chiropractic for Newborns
It’s not just you that can benefit from chiropractic care after your child is born. Many babies come into the world with spinal misalignments resulting from the strain of being born. This can lead to sleep and feeding issues, and even to colic. Gentle adjustments and principled chiropractic care can prevent these problems.
In addition, chiropractic for newborns can correct potential issues with balance and with emotional and behavioral problems later in life, and it even can reduce the potential for acid reflux. Chiropractic care puts your child on the road to lifelong health and wellness as soon as they enter the world.
