I’d like to tell you about an aspect of chiropractic care you might not know about.
When I first started in practice I treated a patient named Donna. Donna had a desk job and found monthly adjustments kept her free from neck and lower back pain. She became pregnant with her second child and we continued to give her regular treatments. After having the baby I asked her how the delivery went. She said: “I wish I had known about chiropractic adjustments when I had my first child.” She related that her second pregnancy had been much easier and the delivery was more comfortable and took less time than her first child. She noted during her first pregnancy she had not had the chiropractic care and, while there were no complications, it hadn’t been easy.
Over the years I’ve seen many similar results. Pregnant women who receive chiropractic care have more comfortable pregnancies and easier, faster delivery times. Chiropractic research verifies these facts.
I have attended chiropractic postgraduate classes focused on treating pregnant women utilizing the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a method that chiropractors use to keep the pelvis and lower spine of pregnant women in good alignment. This method is a safe, gentle, drug-free way of assisting women during pregnancy.
If you are women who is pregnant or know someone who is please consider what I’ve mentioned here. If I can help a pregnant woman I’ll let her know. If I can’t I’ll tell her that also.
Chiropractic care for pregnant women may make a world of difference!
