We believe that women can have less pain throughout their pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is very popular among pregnant women for a number of reasons…
A woman’s body undergoes extreme changes during pregnancy in a very short period of time. Despite the fact that your body was created to endure these changes, your joints and muscles are still put under a lot of stress which often lead to many discomforts. By assessing and gently treating the spine and pelvic bones, chiropractic care can help pinpoint and fix any problems in the joints that may be causing many of the discomforts of pregnancy; such as low back pain, pelvic pain, ligament discomfort and upper back pain. Because of its direct influence on the nervous system, chiropractic care can also ensure that your uterine area is receiving the proper messages from the surrounding nerves. Who doesn’t want a more comfortable pregnancy!
Labour and Delivery
As many women are concerned about their labour and delivery, chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can ensure that your pelvic alignment is optimal for labour and delivery of the baby. More and more women, as well as childbirth practitioners (midwives, obstetricians, doula’s etc.) are seeing the benefits that chiropractic care can have on proper pelvic alignment for birthing your baby. Many women report a less painful, quicker and easier birth when under chiropractic care.
Breech or Mal-positioned Babies and Webster Technique
Our chiropractors are trained and certified in the Webster Technique, which they use to detect and correct specific pelvic misalignments which is often helpful for breach or mal-positioned babies. The Webster technique is a specific adjustment and ligament release technique used to create the optimal pelvic alignment and balance. In many cases the Webster technique applied to a pregnant pelvis has shown to help breech babies turn head down on their own. Our team has a very high success rate with correcting pelvis misalignment using the Webster technique. If you have questions about the Webster technique, do not wait to call Waterdown Village Chiropractic & Wellness Group and book an appointment for an assessment with one of our chiropractors.
