What is Prenatal Chiropractic?
Prenatal chiropractic is a specific form of chiropractic care that is tailored to those who are pregnant. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has grown in popularity as an effective method to help pregnant patients alleviate discomfort. As your body undergoes shifts in the center of gravity and hormonal fluctuations, it can result in pain and discomfort in your spine, hips, and pelvis. Chiropractic treatments while pregnant can not only help relieve your pain, but our chiropractor can also provide tools to practice at home to keep you active and able to do your activities of daily living throughout your pregnancy journey.

The Webster Technique
The Webster Technique is a specific technique used in chiropractic during pregnancy.
It combines gentle chiropractic adjustments and specific soft tissue therapy to help address pelvic concerns during pregnancy. The Webster Technique requires certification and training, which we have! When we use this form of chiropractic for pregnancy, we are not trying to turn your baby. Instead, the goal is to decrease any tension in the ligaments, muscles, low back and pelvic joints and keep you active throughout your pregnancy.
Postpartum chiropractic care focuses on addressing the physical changes and stresses bodies go through during pregnancy and delivery. During pregnancy, hormonal changes prepare the pelvis for childbirth by loosening ligaments. Unfortunately, sometimes these concerns continue early in the post-partum period due to the rapid changes your body endures. Additionally, carrying and nursing a baby can strain the neck, shoulders, and upper back.
Postpartum chiropractic treatments help reduce tension in your spine, pelvis, and other affected joints, resulting in a decrease of pain, and stress relief. We use postpartum chiro as a holistic approach to your recovery, supporting your physical and mental transition into parenthood!
