Chiropractic care is a non-invasive approach that can be beneficial for women both during and after pregnancy. It focuses on maintaining spinal alignment and can help alleviate common discomforts such as back pain, pelvic pain, and sciatica. 

During pregnancy, chiropractic care aims to enhance nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems, function and ensure proper pelvic balance. This can provide better movement in the pelvis providing the best biomechanics for birth . 

After childbirth, chiropractic treatments can assist in realigning the spine and pelvis as the body recovers from the physical demands of pregnancy and delivery. It’s recommended to seek a chiropractor who is trained in prenatal and postnatal care to ensure treatments are tailored to the individual’s needs and safety. We are proud to have Chiropractors who have undergone additional training in prenatal and postnatal care to provide you with the best possible care for you and your baby. 

One of the techniques that is used during your pregnancy journey is the Webster technique: The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of lumbar dysfunction and/or SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neurobiomechanical function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved. [ICPA 2024]
