Chiropractic and Pregnancy

by | May 23, 2023

Orem, UT — We all know that pregnancy is a life-changing experience that can bring both joy and discomfort. As your body undergoes rapid changes to accommodate your growing baby, it is natural to experience back pain, joint stiffness, and other musculoskeletal issues. While these conditions are common during pregnancy, they can be managed and alleviated through consistent chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is a natural and drug-free approach to health that focuses on the relationship between the nervous system and the rest of the body, or as we like to call it here the brain-to-body connection. During pregnancy, the spine and pelvic bones can become misaligned, leading to nerve interference and other issues. Chiropractic adjustments can help to realign the neurospinal system, relieve pressure on the nerves, and promote optimal health and well-being for both momma and the growing baby.

At Renegade Chiropractic we utilize a technique called Webster Technique to help bring balance to the pelvic area for our pregnant moms. This technique is a specialized approach to chiropractic care that focuses on the pelvis and sacrum. The sacrum is a triangular bone at the base of the spine, and directly moves with the pelvis. When the pelvis and sacrum are imbalanced then this stresses the neurology in this area, which causes muscles and ligaments in this area to be stressed as well. The Webster Technique involves gentle chiropractic care to help create balance in the pelvis, round ligament, psoas muscle, piriformis muscle, and other associated structures with the pelvic girdle to help facilitate proper positioning of the baby in the uterus.

Proper positioning of the baby is crucial during pregnancy because it can help to ensure a smoother and safer delivery. When the baby is in the correct position, there is less risk of complications, such as breech birth, back labor, and prolonged labor. The Webster Technique can help to optimize the pelvic alignment and ease any tension that may be causing the baby to be in a suboptimal position.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can also help to alleviate a variety of musculoskeletal issues. Back pain, sciatica, and other conditions are common during pregnancy, and chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate these symptoms. Additionally, regular chiropractic care can help to reduce the likelihood of developing complications such as pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes.

Chiropractic care is safe and effective during pregnancy, and it is a natural way to promote optimal health and well-being for both mother and child. If you are pregnant and experiencing discomfort, consider seeking chiropractic care to help manage your symptoms and promote a healthy pregnancy.
