Prenatal Chiropractic is concerned with the relationship between the Pregnant Mother's spine, pelvis, and nervous system. During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes dramatic changes, structurally, chemically (hormones), and emotionally. Webster Technique can help make pregnancy more comfortable, more enjoyable, and prepare the body for an easier, safer birth. Dr. Ring is the only Webster Certified Chiropractor in the area.
A woman's body undergoes very rapid change during pregnancy including increased weight gain, change in posture, and shifting hormone levels which relax stabilizing ligaments. The changes are vital for growth and arrival of baby, but they can also result in a lot of discomfort. Common secondary conditions from this shift include aches and pain (low back, sciatica, pubic bone, tailbone, etc.), digestive disorders (reflux, heartburn, constipation, etc.), overall wellness (fatigue, sleep, emotional swings, etc.), and even disruptions of normal birth (baby’s position, onset or progression of birth).
Chiropractic care is a gentle, non-invasive approach to correcting and stabilizing the spine and pelvis. Completely safe throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care helps the body work better and ultimately, improve quality of life and potentially birth outcomes. We have had hundreds of patients tell us chiropractic made their pregnancy more enjoyable, their birth shorter and easier, and helped them achieve the birth experience they wanted.
Chiropractic is also incredibly beneficial post-partum to help the body recover from pregnancy and the birth process, and help the body adapt to the new physical and emotional challenges of motherhood. Most of our moms also get baby checked to determine if chiropractic can help with development and challenges like breastfeeding, digestion, comfort, sleep, and immune function.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association website is a great resource, filled with research and articles that further explain the important role chiropractic plays in prenatal care. Dr. Ring is Certified in Webster Technique and has extensive training and clinical experience working with pregnant women.
