Prenatal Chiropractic Care in San Diego
The added weight of a developing baby can strain the body. Prenatal chiropractic care in San Diego can relieve your pain.
If you’re pregnant or have experienced pregnancy and delivery in the past, you understand the unique pain and discomfort women experience during this time.
However, you don’t have to suffer through the pain! Prenatal chiropractic care is a safe way to ease pregnancy-related discomfort.
Why Prenatal Chiropractic Care is so Important
During pregnancy, many women experience:
- Rib pain
- Pubic bone pain
- Low back pain
Many of these issues arise from uneven weight distribution and the developing fetus pushing against the ribs and internal organs.
When you carry most of your weight in front of you, it pulls your body out of proper posture and alignment. The result is muscle tension, nerve compression, and joint strain.
Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, gentle, non-invasive way to ease the stress on your body and provide you with relief from your pain.
Additionally, a chiropractor can prepare you for comfortable labor and help you through a breech presentation. Our San Diego chiropractor has successfully helped turn dozens of breech babies, helping mothers avoid C-sections and allowing them to deliver naturally.
The Webster Technique – What It is and Why We Use It
When it’s time to deliver your baby, the baby needs to turn itself upside down so that its head is aligned with the birth canal. In some cases, the baby doesn’t have the space it needs to turn itself around – this is a breech baby.
Dr. Larry Webster developed this chiropractic technique which reduces the stress on the uterus, allowing the baby more space to move. The technique is safer and less invasive than the external cephalic version, in which a doctor manually moves the baby into position.
The Webster technique addresses misalignment of the sacral bone (the shield-shaped bone that connects to the pelvis). Misalignment of this bone causes tension on pelvic ligaments, which can constrain the uterus. With gentle adjustments of the sacral bone and joints, pressure is relieved. Not only does the baby have more room to move, but labor is also more comfortable for the mother.
