During pregnancy, a woman's body goes through endocrinological and physiological changes to create an environment for the developing baby. A pregnant woman may experience pelvic and postural changes and an increased back curve. The baby may have trouble getting into the best delivery position if the pelvis is misaligned. That is why women need to receive chiropractic treatment during pregnancy. Our team here at Integrity Chiropractic and Wellness in Findlay is here to help your body stay in the best condition for you and your growing baby.
What Happens to the Body During Pregnancy
As the baby grows in the womb, the weight puts pressure on several areas of the body. Additionally, the ligaments relax more, making it possible for the baby to move through the birth canal. This leads to a more curved spine, pelvic changes, and uneven weight distribution. These are some of the biggest reasons for back pain, neck pain, and injuries during pregnancy. There is also the possibility of long deliveries and breech birth.
Our team at Integrity Chiropractic and Wellness is certified in the Webster technique. This chiropractic treatment is a gentle yet effective method that can help ease discomfort during pregnancy and ensure proper positioning of the pelvis to best support the fetus before birth. Although the technique's original purpose was to prevent breech births or other awkward and potentially harmful positions, studies have shown this technique can also support a more comfortable pregnancy overall. Not only does our treatment provide a great deal of back pain relief, but it can also help ensure your body is well prepared for delivery. Using the Webster technique, our chiropractors can provide optimal positioning of a woman's pelvic alignment to improve nerve system function to bring pelvic muscles into proper balance.
Even under the best conditions, receiving Webster technique adjustments during pregnancy can help the labor and delivery process perform efficiently. The Webster technique can also help pregnant women with a small pelvis or a tendency for irregular contractions have an optimal delivery experience. Not every chiropractor is certified to utilize the Webster technique, so it is essential to see our certified team at Integrity Chiropractic and Wellness. Even after birth, we can continue to provide chiropractic care for the baby as an infant and throughout their childhood.
