Updated: May 4
Ari-Ann, (pictured above), has been under chiropractic care since BEFORE her first pregnancy!!! Now, expecting baby #2, she is over-thrilled with how well she is feeling AND functioning to bring her new baby into the world!!!
A lot of moms turn to chiropractic care when they are experiencing low back pain or sciatica during pregnancy. But what does Dr. Taylor & Dr. Amanda do at Restoration Chiropractic to help expecting mamas?
At Restoration Chiropractic, we utilize a technique known as Webster Technique, specific to pregnancy!
What is WEBSTER TECHNIQUE?
The Webster protocol is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association developed this adjustment as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function.
It was developed to restore normal physiological function of the mother and improve her comfort throughout pregnancy in preparation for a safer, easier birth. He reported that in women who presented with a breech baby, the results of the adjustment appeared to normalize pelvic neuro-biomechanics and facilitate optimal fetal positioning.
As he taught other Doctors of Chiropractic this adjustment, they too reported positive changes in baby positioning!!! How cool is this?
Pregnancy is a beautiful journey. It’s a magical time when a family is growing and full of excitement for what’s to come. Unfortunately, many healthcare providers see low back pain while pregnant as temporary and conditional. Since it’s not an urgent threat to the mother or baby, it can be overlooked. With so many women going through pregnancy, a special time in their life, why should their pregnancy-related pain be overlooked?
Every mother deserves to enjoy pregnancy without low back pain!
Neurologically-based chiropractic care is proven safe for pregnant women and their babies. Chiropractic care that is based around gentle, specific adjustments provides a safe way for women to receive real relief from their pain, but also create the optimal environment for a healthy, happy pregnancy, birth, and beyond.
Pain doesn’t just happen—the body is trying to tell us that something is wrong, and women deserve real relief and answers.
Chiropractic care is often the missing link in what mother's look for in order to have the best pregnancy possible!!!
