Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Dr. Dustin and the entire team here at Vital Performance Chiropractic want to make sure mom is as comfortable and pain free as possible! Momma’s body, and nervous system are baby’s whole world. With that being said, we want to make sure that little blessing has the best environment possible in order to develop properly and healthy. We know pregnancy and the birthing process can be traumatic on both mom and baby. That’s why we will always go out of our way to educate them on how Chiropractic can help throughout the entire process.
With C-section rates sky rocketing to almost 50% we want to be the change that brings that number back down to emergency situations only (which is less than 10% of the time). We want women to feel empowered, confident, and stress free throughout this process, and chiropractic care can help!
The Webster Technique
Dr. Dustin is certified in the Webster Technique. This technique focuses on correcting subluxations, nerve interference, and misalignments of the sacrum, which may cause tightening and torsion of the pelvic muscles and ligaments. It is these tense muscles and ligaments that affect the uterus which may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.
Obstetric literature has determined that correct positioning of the baby in-utero affects birth outcome and decreases the potential for undue stress to the baby’s developing spine and nerve system, as well as the importance of pelvic neuro-biomechanics for the prevention of dystocia (difficult birth). Chiropractic literature has determined the significance of sacral adjusting in normalizing pelvic function described above.
It is essential that this specific sacral analysis and adjustment be used throughout pregnancy to detect and alleviate sacral imbalance and optimize pelvic function. Because of the particular female adaptations from the increase of hormones, weight gain, and postural adaptations, pregnant mothers have a greater chance of sacral subluxation and functional imbalance than the general population. The effect that chiropractic adjustments have on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.
