Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Dr. Brytani Laird provides safe, controlled and gentle care during pregnancy. Dr. Brytani is certified in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The technique looks at removing interference in the spine, pelvis, and surrounding muscles and ligaments by gentle adjustments.
The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to many aches and pains. As your belly grows to accommodate the growing baby, your center of gravity shifts to the front of your pelvis. This will cause added stress to your lower back and the joints of the pelvis. Some of the common symptoms you may experience during pregnancy are:
Low back pain
Round ligament pain
Mid back pain
When our spine has stress, strain, or compression, the nerves can become irritated. This can cause pain to radiate to other areas of the body because the nerves that travel to all parts of our body originate in the spine.
Some of the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
Reduce heartburn, indigestion, and nausea
Proper nerve signal to uterus and baby
Optimal baby positioning
Reduce labor time and pain
Dr. Brytani will work with your midwife or OB to ensure a safe and healthy pregnancy.
Do not forget about the post-partum period. Your body has been through major changes over the last 40+ weeks. Your body is now going through more changes, as your body has to get used to being without the baby. Also, now you are holding the baby which causes additional stress for your body.
