Here at VFC we love serving women before, during, and after pregnancy. Chiropractic has the ability to release any interference between the nervous system and the rest of the body. During pregnancy so much change takes place and it is vital that the pelvis is balanced, the spine is in alignment, and most importantly the nervous system is functioning at its optimal potential.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis used to reduce the effects of sacral/pelvic dysfunction. Sacral adjustments may improve the neuro-biomechanical function of the sacrum and pelvis. Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother, caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of difficult labor.
Chiropractic care can help promote regular menstrual cycles and restore proper uterine function. When it comes to infertility, chiropractic care may be the natural solution you have been seeking. Spinal alignment eliminates nerve interference and promotes optimal function pre-conception.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can improve a mother’s balance, pelvis alignment, and flexibility. In addition, mothers who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy report less low back pain and reduced morning sickness. Research shows that mothers who maintain a chiropractic regimen during pregnancy often find that their experience in labor is less difficult, their contractions reliably timed, and the delivery is faster and easier.
The birthing process is physically, mentally, and emotionally hard on the mother. Chiropractic care provides optimal nerve function to the mother’s body as she recovers from pregnancy and delivery. In addition, mothers report being more comfortable while breastfeeding.
