Many people have a misconception that pregnant moms can't seek Chiropractic care. However, that is not true! Chiropractic care is a completely safe practice for expecting mothers. In fact, it’s been proven numerous times that chiropractic care is both safe and effective when it comes to alleviating pains and discomforts associated with pregnancy and your changing body.
Here are some benefits of chiropractic treatment during pregnancy and how it can help with overall experience:
As your baby develops and grows heavier, your center of gravity shifts, which greatly alters your posture. This postural change can lead to misalignment of your spinal vertebrae or various other joints located in close proximity to the spine. Moreover, the growing protrusion of your abdomen typically causes the spine to curve too far forward, which often results in significant low back discomfort. An increased spinal curve can also limit your range of motion and affect your normal movement patterns.
At Live Well Chiropractic, Dr Siew Wei performs Webster technique, which is a gentle chiropractic adjustment that aligns the pelvis and includes a soft tissue release of associated muscle groups. It allows the pelvis to function properly during pregnancy. The technique reduces soft tissue tension that may cause uterine torsion which allows for an ideal environment for the baby to grow and move. This technique is also comfortable and safe for both yourself and your baby.
By visiting a Webster-Certified chiropractor during and after your pregnancy, your labor is more likely to go smoothly and without a breech baby. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help maintain an excellent pelvic balance, so your baby can freely move into the correct delivery position. Furthermore, chiropractic treatment helps strengthen your immune system and contributes to the overall health of you and your baby, thus reducing unwanted symptoms or complications such as a cord prolapse or the need for a C-section delivery.
Routine adjustments during pregnancy can put your body in a position to heal and bounce back quicker because you’re starting off with your body in proper balance. Women who seek chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can continue to enjoy the benefits after delivery as well. Proper alignment can help new moms avoid injuries when bending to lift a baby, holding a baby for long periods, pushing strollers and lifting car seats!
