Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care While Pregnant

Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a woman’s life.
With all the joys associated with starting a family, the process of growing a human can often bring discomfort and sometimes cause pain. Misalignments, unstable joints, and inter uterine constraint are all common occurrences during pregnancy.

Your baby’s home for nine months is your uterus, which is suspended between your pelvic bones by ligaments. These ligaments can become twisted when the pelvis or hips become misaligned. This decreases the amount of space your baby has to move, and develop.

There is a hormone released in a pregnant woman’s body called relaxin, it allows for your normally stable joints to become unstable which allows the natural birthing process to occur, the down side is that it can also increase your body’s susceptibility to subluxations.

Prenatal chiropractic care is an ideal way of reducing the discomfort many women experience during pregnancy and allowing the joy of your growing family to be the focus.

Chiropractic Care Helps Fertility

Many men and women become frustrated or depressed at failed efforts to conceive. If you think you’ve exhausted every fertility option and have lost hope, chiropractic care may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.

When your nervous system isn’t functioning properly, a number of fertility issues can result. Sometimes, a simple spinal adjustment can improve your chances for pregnancy.

Undergoing pre-conceptive chiropractic care can improve your body’s health, allow for better uterine function and better regulate menstruation. Proper menstrual function will help prepare your body to receive a baby, which will in turn increase your chances for conception and for maintaining a healthy pregnancy.

What is the Webster Technique?

Dr. Evan Pridmore specializes in maternal care and is certified in the Webster Technique. Being Webster Certified means thorough training to work specifically with pelvic balance during pregnancy. The Webster Technique helps align the pelvis and relax the uterus to help baby get into optimal position for birth, which also helps Mom be more comfortable throughout all stages of pregnancy.

Mothers who maintain a chiropractic regimen during pregnancy often find that their experience in labor is less difficult and the delivery is much faster than those who do not receive consistent chiropractic care.

Postnatal chiropractic adjustments can help to correct distortion of the pelvis and restore energy and healthy body function in the long term.
