What is Treatment Like for Prenatal and Postnatal Chiropractic Care?
During your appointment, your chiropractor will most likely choose to do a spinal alignment. The biggest difference between typical alignments and those for pregnant women is the focus of pressure away from the abdomen. Your doctor will avoid any harmful moves or stretches that could be unsafe for the developing baby, or could cause pain to the sensitive areas following pregnancy. Much of the appointment may also be focused on the pelvic region, as this area sees a lot of stress while your body changes and adapts in order to carry the baby.
Why Chiropractic Care?
When applying chiropractic care to pregnant women, the goal is to improve overall movement and to eliminate any existing pains, especially in the lower back or pelvic areas. At Unruh Spine Center, Dr. Kelly Herta specializes in prenatal and postnatal care and knows exactly how to handle specific pregnancy pains.
Her certification by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association signifies her ability to properly care for pregnant patients, who often require different types of care and more specialized techniques for safe adjustment.
Dr. Herta is also Webster Technique Certified, which means she can adjust the pelvic region to remove restrictions in movement, allowing the baby to move into the optimal position for growth. If you are further along in your pregnancy, this can also position the baby for an easier, more natural birth. In some cases, the Webster Technique has even been used to solve issues with babies in the breech position, repositioning them for a safe delivery.
A Natural Solution for Your Concerns
Using chiropractic care during pregnancy is a great option because treatments are entirely natural. Many medicines are inadvisable for pregnant women, especially those associated with pain alleviation. To find pain relief without the use of drugs is an ideal situation, and one that supports the continued health of you and your child.
