Why Would a Pregnant Woman See a Chiropractor?

The most common cases are experiencing aches and pains of the musculoskeletal system, such as

  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatic pain
  • Buttock pain
  • Hip pain
  • Cervical tension
  • Mid-back tension

The reasons to see a chiropractor, however, aren’t just related to enjoying greater comfort during pregnancy. There’s much more you can benefit from!

The Webster Technique

Chiropractic isn’t simply focused on relieving your pain, however. It is also a fantastic option for women whose babies are in an improper position for birth. Dr. Shire is certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

Some people mistakenly think that this technique turns the baby. Rather, it’s all about removing areas of misalignment that can prevent your baby from turning head down. Once that blockage is identified, Dr. Shire delivers a comfortable, precise adjustment. In turn, your baby may have a better opportunity to get in the right position for birth.

Discover the Benefits

No matter which trimester you’re in, chiropractic care has numerous benefits during pregnancy. These include better balance, bowel regulation, promotion of mental clarity and more. Plus, studies show that chiropractic patients have a reduced likelihood of needing a C-section or other serious interventions during the birthing process. That’s something every expecting mother can relate to hoping for.
