Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustments and Safety

Woman holding bellyWhen applied by experienced practitioners, chiropractic adjustments are a safe solution during pregnancy. Here at Ritchie Chiropractic & Integrative Medicine, we use extraordinarily gentle force to apply adjustments, and we consider them to be an absolute necessity for expectant mothers.

Pregnant women undergo incredible physiological changes, which include the widening of the pelvis and, sometimes, restriction of the sacrum. We use our adjustment techniques to help increase the amount of room available for your baby in the uterus. Without these types of guided adjustments, women can experience pain and the baby can be prevented from proper movement in the uterus. If the baby is unable to move in the uterus, they will be unable to shift into the proper position for delivery.

We use a technique designed specifically for pregnant women called the Webster technique. This technique ensures that the baby has room to move around and eventually flip into the correct position for the birthing process. We find that the Webster technique can be very effective at helping babies shift into the correct position early and stay there, allowing women to have an easier and faster birth.

Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

The primary benefits of prenatal chiropractic care are promoting the proper position of the baby and pain relief for the mother. We spend a lot of time helping our expectant mothers find relief from severe back and leg pain, which can be unbearable.

Prenatal chiropractic care eases the delivery process, which helps reduce the trauma of labor on both mom and baby. We always hope to promote positioning for mothers who plan on a natural birth, so that we can avoid emergency C-sections or force during labor with things like forceps or vacuum extraction which can cause injury to the top of the baby’s spine. An easier, natural birth is a key goal of prenatal chiropractic care, and avoiding injury from the birthing process is a huge benefit.
