In this amazing time of rapid development, hormonal changes, laxity of ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, Chiropractic care can be quite helpful.
Besides relieving the discomfort many expectant mother's may experience, chiropractic care helps to normalize nerve system function for a less stressful pregnancy. Having your spine checked also ensures proper positioning of the pelvis, which allows for optimum space for your baby to grow and wiggle around. The benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed with shorter and more comfortable labor time. What woman wouldn't be excited about that!
Regular chiropractic adjustments, along with other healthy habits, create the best opportunity for a healthy, happy baby.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment, which reduces nerve system stress, and improves pelvic biomechanical function. Its purpose is to detect and correct sacral subluxation and S/I joint dysfunction. This technique is great for pregnant women with low back and hip pain. The goal of the adjustment is to restore normal function of the pelvis and improve mom's comfort through pregnancy and prepare for a safer and easier birth. Dr. Kim will provide pregnancy pillows and use a light and specific contact adjustment technique to ensure you are completely comfortable during your adjustment.
Dr. Kim is Webster Certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and a member of the American Pregnancy Association.
Baby's here now what?
It's so easy to be caught up in the moments after having your baby and all you can think of is taking care of this precious gift that needs your constant attention 24/7. Moms, we have to remember that this was a process for you too. After a few weeks, your pregnancy high comes down and reality sets in of "when am I ever going to get my life, health and body back". Please let us help you physically, mentally and emotionally during this time. If everything with labor and the birthing process went well, we recommend our new moms to come in as soon as they are able. You can also consult with your OB-GYN about when to come in. No matter how well of a birthing process you had, it was still a process and your body went through some major changes to give birth. Your body then has to get used to not having a baby in there and getting adjusted can help the spine and pelvis get realigned. Getting checked and adjusted can also help improve new mommy pains, sleep, and may even increase your milk supply by reducing the stress in your system.
