Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Dr. Sparks is trained in the Webster technique for pregnant women. It creates optimal pelvic alignment to reduce dystocia or difficulty during labor and delivery.

Being treated by a chiropractor throughout pregnancy can minimize back pain caused by the continuous changes to a mother’s body as her pregnancy progresses. As the baby gets bigger her center of gravity changes. She gets more curve in her lower back and her pelvis tilts. The baby gains around a pound a week during the last month of pregnancy, which is a lot of change. On top of that, certain hormones like relaxin are released in late stage pregnancy that loosen ligaments to allow the pelvis to expand during the birth process. Those hormones are specific to just the pelvis and can affect the stability of other joints too. This makes late stage pregnant women easy to adjust, but their adjustments don’t hold as long due to the hormones. We often see women a bit more frequently when they get closer to delivery.

If you are an expecting mother, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Lifecity Chiro to get treated today!
