Pregnancy is a beautiful and transformative journey, but it often comes with a variety of discomforts and physical challenges. Our goal is to help pregnant women experience a healthier, more comfortable, and more empowered pregnancy by addressing common issues that can arise during this time through our custom-tailored prenatal care.
Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints during pregnancy. As the baby grows, the mother's center of gravity shifts, leading to increased pressure on the lower back. Chiropractic adjustments can help to relieve this discomfort by improving spinal alignment and reducing muscle tension.
Pelvic Pain and Discomfort
Pelvic pain and discomfort are often experienced during pregnancy due to hormonal changes and the expanding uterus. Chiropractic care can help to maintain proper pelvic alignment and balance, easing pain and discomfort.
Sciatica, or pain radiating down the leg, can occur during pregnancy as a result of the growing uterus pressing on the sciatic nerve. Chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate pressure on the nerve, reducing pain and discomfort.
Round Ligament Pain
Round ligament pain is a sharp or throbbing pain in the lower abdomen or groin area that may be experienced during pregnancy. Chiropractic care can help to alleviate this discomfort by addressing the underlying cause, such as misaligned joints or muscle imbalances.
As the baby grows, many women experience a change in their posture, leading to increased stress on the spine and surrounding muscles. Chiropractic adjustments can help to improve posture and promote proper spinal alignment, reducing the risk of pain and discomfort.
Our skilled, Webster certified, chiropractors utilize gentle, non-invasive techniques to address these pregnancy-related conditions, including:
Spinal adjustments: Gently realigning the vertebrae to promote proper spinal alignment and reduce nerve irritation.
Soft tissue therapy: Targeting tight or overworked muscles to alleviate tension and promote relaxation.
Pelvic balancing: Ensuring that the pelvis is properly aligned and balanced to accommodate the growing baby and ease discomfort.
Pregnancy-specific exercises: Providing tailored exercises to help strengthen the muscles supporting the spine and pelvis, improving posture and reducing pain.
Nutritional Counseling: Guidance on dietary changes and supplements to support overall prenatal health.
