At Expressing Life Chiropractic, we understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important because the care we offer not only affects mom but also the child. We focus on proper nervous system and spinal function as it is crucial in the development of your baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond treating pain.
Dr. Justin DC is trained in prenatal chiropractic care, which not only alleviates discomfort issues but allows for shorter labor times. As mom functions better, so does your baby.
Chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb, by ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion. Chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process by maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy. Having a safe and natural birth process is something that is extremely vital to the health of both mom and baby.
The modern birth process is often one of the most traumatic events that a person will endure in their life. Unfortunately today, many health care providers look at pregnancy as a “medical condition” rather than the incredibly safe and natural process that it is. A woman’s body is designed perfectly for the birth process, and difficulties typically only arise if mom is not functioning at 100%.
In fact, we can even help those who are having difficulty conceiving. We’ve found that stress put on your nervous system can play a role in your ability to become pregnant. We welcome pregnant women to seek us out at any point during pregnancy to experience the many benefits of McKinney pregnancy chiropractic care.
Dr. Justin DC is well-versed in techniques to suit all stages of pregnancy, including instrument-based methods and a drop table to accommodate your growing belly as well as specific pregnancy pillows that will support you and the baby through adjustments so there is no need to worry when lying on your belly.
Even though you may have had a positive delivery experience, during the process, there’s always a chance of stress on your new gift of life. We recommend that you have your baby checked as soon as possible after they’re born to gently check their alignment. Research shows that 80-90% of all newborns have subluxation/interference in their upper neck. Over time this can cause difficulty in development and may even slow down the development of your baby. This is also, the number one cause of ear infections.
When the pelvis is aligned and the ligament stress is relieved, the webster technique allows more room for the baby to move in the belly. Often this allows the baby to be able to turn into the proper position when it’s time to give birth. Moms often experience a more relaxing, comfortable birth.
