Are you frustrated with the pain you’re experiencing while pregnant?
Does it make it hard to sleep, sit, or stand comfortably?
Have you noticed you’re becoming more irritable?
You’re not alone…
Low-back pain, tailbone pain, pubic symphysis pain, headaches, etc. are all COMMON symptoms associated with pregnancy.
Mama, you’ve made it so far!
If you’re here reading this now, you may be wondering about chiropractic care during pregnancy or, if you are searching for information about the Webster Technique specifically (because your doctor has informed you of a breech or transverse baby), you are welcome here!
That doesn’t make them NORMAL.
As a pregnant mom, you will notice dozens of changes to your body. These new variations can cause abnormal shifts to the structure of your spine and musculature.
If action isn’t taken to correct the shifts, they will begin to cause problems in your body.
These may contribute to the pain and symptoms you’re experiencing.
These shifts may also contribute to things you’re not aware of, or thinking about.
Such as: numbness and tingling, fatigue, nausea, mood swings, breech baby, etc.
As a Neuro-Structural Chiropractor in Centennial, CO, I’ve created a practice to help guide pregnant women who are dealing with these specific challenges.
If you are interested in determining whether your spine and nervous system may be playing a role in why you feel the way you do, click the link and schedule a complimentary consultation with us.
And, if you have a breech or transverse baby, you may be able to benefit from the Webster Method (a special type of prenatal chiropractic care).
The short story is that every mother is different, every body is different, and every baby is too. However, what the Webster Technique aims to do is help align your spine and pelvis so that your growing baby has more room to make their own adjustments – pretty neat!
How is the Webster Technique performed?
If you have been to a chiropractor before, you may be used to gentle adjustments, and Webster Technique is no difference. Your doctor will analyze your spine, hips, and sacrum alignment and then gently move them in a more optimally spaced placement.
This allows you to often relieve any joint pain you may have been experiencing (as an added bonus) and helps maximize the space for your baby. In many studies (link) breech and transverse babies have been able to correct their posture prior to birth. It is not always guaranteed, but it is a natural way to try to prepare for labor.
“In regards to pregnant mothers, Dr. Webster reported that when a mother sought care and her baby was in a breech position, the restoration of pelvic neuro-biomechanics with this adjustment also frequently facilitated optimal fetal positioning.” – ICPA
One more thing…
My consultation is a conversation…not a commitment.
