Although pregnancy only lasts nine months, the number of physical, emotional, and chemical changes your body goes through during this time may feel endless. Many expectant mothers turn to chiropractic for gentle, natural relief from common pregnancy symptoms, including:
At Palmercare, we use light chiropractic adjustments that are specific to the needs of pregnant patients. Two common techniques we use at our practice are Webster’s technique and Logan’s technique.
Webster’s technique is an adjustment that balances and relaxes the round ligaments and brings the lumbo-pelvic region into proper alignment for a more comfortable pregnancy and childbirth.
Logan’s technique is another adjustment that brings the body into alignment, but it’s more well-known for balancing the nervous system. During pregnancy, blood and nerve flow often shift to the hands and feet, resulting in swelling. Logan’s technique is used to shift flow back to the center of your body, where your baby is growing and developing.
Another benefit of prenatal chiropractic care is that your chiropractor can coach you and your partner in different stretches, positions, and exercises to practice at home in order to strengthen your body and keep it balanced as you prepare for birth.
