Often, we receive questions from our patients, whether can they bring their pregnant wife to come for chiropractic care, and hence we will talk about pregnancy and chiropractic care!
What is Webster technique ?
The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that helps to balance the pelvic bones, muscle, and ligament, restore the nervous system of the mother, and to optimize their pelvic function throughout the whole pregnancy and birth.
How chiropractic helps ?
Chiropractic care especially the Webster technique helps to realign the pelvic bone by correcting the subluxation/ misalignment of the bone and work on the pelvic muscles and ligaments.
This helps to :
1. Restore the pelvic alignment
2. Reduce tension around the pelvic muscles and ligament
3. Allow a nice and comfortable space for baby to grow in the belly
4. Improved space for fetus movement with pelvic alignment restoration
Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy ?
Yes! Chiropractic care is safe throughout every stage of pregnancy. According to studies, chiropractic treatment may be considered safe and effective to treat musculoskeletal symptoms that affect pregnant mothers (7)! )! Chiropractic adjustments on pregnant mothers differ from standard chiropractic adjustments in that they are more specific, less forceful, and gentler due to the looser ligaments during pregnancy and there will be more cushion to support the belly during the treatment.
