How does chiropractic techniques help with pregnancy and prenatal care?

During pregnancy, your body experiences many changes, including:

  • Weight gain
  • Protruding abdomen
  • Increased spinal curve
  • Pelvic changes
  • Postural adaptations

When combined, these factors increase the risk of neck, back, and leg pain. 

Since pregnancy lasts an average of nine months, it’s important to address these issues early on. Chiropractic care provides a safe and effective way to find relief. 

In addition to easing your pain and improving your mobility, Dr. Panchal can make recommendations to make labor and delivery more comfortable. Using The Webster Technique, he can even optimally position your baby.

What are the benefits of pregnancy and prenatal care?

Receiving pregnancy and prenatal care at Platinum Chiropractic + Wellness offers various benefits, including:

  • A healthier pregnancy
  • Less nausea
  • Quicker labor and deliver
  • Less back, joint, and neck pain

Working with Dr. Panchal throughout your pregnancy can even prevent the need for a potential cesarean delivery (C-section).

What is The Webster Technique?

The Webster Technique is a specific type of chiropractic care. It’s a type of treatment that aligns your pelvis and sacrum, as well as the muscles and ligaments around these areas. 

During The Webster Technique, you lie face down on an exam table. Dr. Panchal looks at both of your feet and bends them toward your buttocks. If your feet are uneven, it means your pelvis is out of alignment. Dr. Panchal uses a special adjusting instrument to correct these issues, making more room in your pelvis.

If your baby is in a breech position (feet first), they’re more likely to need a C-section. The Webster Technique encourages movement, helping your baby reposition.

Are chiropractic techniques for pregnancy and prenatal care safe?

Chiropractic treatment for pregnancy and prenatal care is safe and usually well-tolerated. If you experience any discomfort during or after your appointment, don’t hesitate to speak up.

Dr. Panchal is committed to your health and well-being and can make adjustments to your treatment plan as necessary.
