The Incredible Benefits of Pregnancy Care

Thinking about seeing a chiropractor? There are plenty of reasons to consider!

  • Allows expectant mothers to achieve the goals of their birth plan
  • Allows for a more comfortable pregnancy and birth
  • Aids the pelvis in adapting along with your changing body
  • Sets up your belly, uterus and pelvis to be as accommodating as possible

The Webster Technique

Our doctors are certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). This technique was developed by Dr. Larry Webster. Many of the pregnant patients he saw had a baby in the breech position, meaning feet down. With a particular adjustment technique, he found that the baby would turn and present for a safe, normal, natural birth.

With our range of skills, you can make sure that your pelvis is in the best possible alignment so that your baby can grow and enter the world just as they should.

Comfortable Adjustments

When we adjust you, you’ll lie face down on the adjusting table thanks to our pregnancy pillows, which make it comfortable and safe for you. Each pillow suits a different trimester of your pregnancy depending on the size of your growing belly.

We even see moms carrying twins or triplets and can accommodate them. Since you’ve got even more weight to carry around, chiropractic is particularly essential!

The Postpartum Period

After you welcome your beautiful baby into the world, the recovery period begins. Moms find a great benefit from having postpartum chiropractic care. We’ll make corrections to the spine and other joints of the body that may be affected during this vital period.

FAQ

Chiropractic care can help you have a happier, healthier, and easier pregnancy. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, you may be wondering how chiropractic care can help. Here are a few answers to some of the common questions regarding pregnancy chiropractic care.

How does pregnancy affect comfort and function?

Major physical changes happen during pregnancy – most notably the enlargement of the abdomen. These changes will throw your normal posture and weight distribution off-balance. These changes, along with the necessary loosening of pelvic ligaments, can cause spinal instability, muscle strain, and nerve pressure that may refer discomfort and pain to other parts of the body.

What type of pregnancy discomfort can my Greensboro pregnancy chiropractor help with?

Your Greensboro chiropractor can adjust your spine to ease both nerve pressure and muscular strain. This reduces both localized muscle discomfort as well as referred pain to your arms, hands, legs, and feet. Pregnancy chiropractic care is commonly used to help keep neck pain, back pain, and extremity pain under control and manageable so that you can have a healthier and more enjoyable pregnancy without the use of medication that can alter the health of your developing baby.

What other benefits can pregnancy chiropractic care provide during my pregnancy?

Discomfort and pain relief are only a few benefits to incorporating chiropractic into your pregnancy care. In addition to helping prenatal aches and pains, pregnancy chiropractic helps your body function more effectively by improving nervous system function. These improvements can optimize your overall health, helping to control swelling, morning sickness, hormone swings, and other side effects associated with pregnancy. These improvements may even lead to an easier and more enjoyable labor period.

What is the Webster Technique?

The Webster Technique is a method of adjusting the pelvis and sacrum to balance the bones, muscles, and nerves associated with that area of the body. The Webster Technique is specific to care for the pregnant patient. All three Doctors at Greensboro Chiropractic are licensed and certified in the Webster Technique.

Is pregnancy chiropractic care safe?

Yes. Rest assured that the pregnancy chiropractic care provided by your Greensboro chiropractor is both safe and comfortable. The techniques we use are gentle and effective. The office also uses chiropractic tables that allow you to relax comfortably through your adjustment, even as your belly frows larger.

How far along in my pregnancy should I seek chiropractic care

The earlier you prepare your body for pregnancy, the better results you will see. There is no limit on how early you can start caring for your spine. Pregnancy chiropractic care can benefit even those who start as late as 39 weeks along.
