While a common occurrence, headaches during pregnancy should not be the defining memory of your experience. As this happens, a maternity chiropractor can help deal with these sudden aches, and our team of expertly-trained chiropractors can help!

NEW PATIENTS

Prenatal chiropractors can see women throughout the various stages of pregnancy. There aren’t any restrictions on when you can begin your prenatal chiropractic care unless you have a pre-existing condition that would prevent you from receiving such treatments.

You might think that pregnancy and chiropractors do not mix, but let us put your mind at ease. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy is not only safe but also recommended. With a combination of techniques and training, our team of experienced chiropractors can help you with any back pain you may feel during your pregnancy!

Back pain during pregnancy is a shared experience for expectant mothers everywhere. Your body will shift, and your center of gravity will change, all in service of bringing a new life into the world. However, you don’t have to suffer from back pain during your pregnancy!

Keeping expectant mothers comfortable throughout their pregnancy requires prenatal chiropractic care. Regular visits to your maternity chiropractor can help treat conditions such as lower back pain, pregnancy sciatica, and sometimes headaches during pregnancy.

Our team has been trained in using the Webster Technique to help our pregnant patients. This particular technique is designed to help facilitate labor and, ultimately, delivery while creating more room in the pelvic area. Finding a maternity chiropractor trained in the Webster Technique can help make the later stages of your pregnancy go more smoothly.

Chiropractic care shouldn’t stop as soon as the baby is born. Postpartum chiropractors can be just as beneficial to mothers as prenatal care, as your body will take some time to readjust to life after carrying your baby.

With the help of trained postpartum chiropractors, you can handle the aches and pains that come with life immediately after childbirth. Our team can perform gentle chiropractic adjustments on your child to deal with conditions such as colic, reflux, and trouble breastfeeding.

Is Pregnancy Chiropractic Treatment Right for Me?

Pregnancy is a time of remarkable physical change. While it’s certainly a beautiful journey, it can also bring discomfort and strain to your body. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe, non-invasive approach that can help alleviate these discomforts and promote overall wellness. But is it the right choice for you?

Here are some questions to ask yourself to help determine if chiropractic care during pregnancy is right for you:

  • Am I experiencing discomfort or pain in my back, neck, or joints? Pregnancy often brings along these issues due to increased weight and changes in posture. Chiropractic care can provide relief.
  • Do I want to prepare my body optimally for labor and delivery? A well-aligned spine and pelvis can contribute to a smoother, less complicated labor and delivery.
  • Am I interested in a holistic, drug-free approach to managing pregnancy discomforts? If you prefer natural treatments over medication, chiropractic care is a great option.
  • Have I been feeling unusually stressed or tense? Regular chiropractic adjustments can help reduce stress and promote overall well-being during this crucial phase of life.

It’s important to discuss your options with a healthcare provider before making a decision. At Community Chiropractic Center, our chiropractors are ready to support you through this beautiful journey, ensuring you enjoy a healthier, more comfortable pregnancy.

What About Chiropractic Care and Breach Deliveries?

The position of your baby in the weeks leading up to childbirth can play a significant role in the type of delivery you experience. A breech presentation, where the baby’s feet or buttocks are positioned to descend first, can complicate the birthing process. This is where chiropractic care comes in.

Chiropractic care, specifically the Webster Technique, has shown promise in assisting with breech presentations. This technique involves specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustments aimed at reducing the effects of sacral subluxation and promoting optimal fetal positioning.

Here’s what you should know:

  • It’s Non-Invasive: The Webster Technique is a non-invasive procedure that promotes balance in the mother’s pelvis, reducing undue stress on her uterus and supporting ligaments. This, in turn, can make it easier for the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
  • It’s Safe: Chiropractic care during pregnancy, including the Webster Technique, is generally considered safe for both mother and baby. It’s a gentle method that doesn’t involve any risky maneuvers or techniques.
  • It Requires a Certified Chiropractor: The Webster Technique should be performed by a chiropractor who is certified in this method.

FAQs

Why Should I Try Chiropractic During My Pregnancy?

Chiropractic is a safe, non-invasive option for pain relief for expectant mothers. Studies have shown that chiropractic is perfectly safe during pregnancy. Chiropractors are specially trained to handle pregnant patients, and you do not need a doctor’s referral. Chiropractors use the technique of gentle adjustments to help realign the spine and hips. This realignment increases flexibility and aligns the hips to encourage proper fetal positioning. Chiropractic has also been known to reduce nausea and reduce the risk of cesarean delivery during labor.

Can We Help?

Drs. Mark and Kristin Legnola take great pride in helping expectant mothers enjoy their pregnancy to the fullest. We offer a variety of tools and techniques to address many different aches and pains while still allowing you to feel safe during your adjustment. Through gentle chiropractic care, we can help treat many common pregnancy issues, including back pain, carpal tunnel, foot pain, low back/gluteus pain, headaches, hip pain, poor balance, and sciatica.

What Should I Expect at My First Visit?

The comfort and safety of you and your baby are our utmost concern. To ensure we are able to safely treat and address every issue, we start with a comprehensive exam.

After the exam, we use our specialized training and a customized treatment plan to help you feel better than when you arrived at our office! We take special care to accommodate discomfort due to c-sections and engorged breasts. We also have many options to accommodate women toward the end of their pregnancy.

Do You Accept Health Insurance?

Yes! Both of our doctors are in-network providers with many major health insurance plans. Your insurance likely covers some portion of your treatment, making care more affordable than you might have originally thought!

What Does it Mean to Be Webster Certified?

Being Webster Certified means a chiropractor has undergone additional training beyond their chiropractic degree to learn and master the Webster Technique. This technique, developed by Dr. Larry Webster, is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nervous system, improving the function of the pelvic muscles and ligaments, leading to a reduction of constraint to the woman’s uterus, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth. A Webster Certified chiropractor is equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide this specialized care, especially beneficial during pregnancy.

When Should I Start Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

It’s never too early or too late to start prenatal chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can be beneficial at all stages of pregnancy. However, starting care in your first trimester can help manage symptoms like nausea and vomiting and help set the stage for a healthier, more comfortable pregnancy overall. Regular adjustments throughout your pregnancy can help manage pain and discomfort, ensure your pelvis is properly aligned for childbirth, and even potentially reduce labor and delivery time. Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new treatment.

Can a Pregnant Woman Go to the Chiropractor for Hip Pain?

Absolutely! Hip pain is common during pregnancy due to changes in posture and the release of hormones that relax the body’s ligaments in preparation for childbirth. Chiropractic care can help alleviate this pain by restoring proper alignment and function to your joints. It’s a safe, drug-free way to manage hip pain during pregnancy. Once again, it’s important to discuss this with your healthcare provider and find a chiropractor who is experienced in this treatment.
