Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
New York, NY Pregnancy and Wellness
Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when you're carrying a child.
However, the reality is that this doesn't have to be the case. The staff at Dr Bernadette Taraski has helped many women in New York experience a healthy and happy pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can often help make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating misalignments creating by the growing fetus, thus creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
There are other advantages of engaging in chiropractic during pregnancy as well.
By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain is better able to communicate with the rest of your body, which means more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, less nausea, and more.
The Webster Technique
A chiropractic adjustment called the Webster technique is a specific sacral adjustment to help facilitate the mother’s pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus. This may offer a greater potential for optimal fetal positioning. Originally used for breech presentations and then posterior presentations, current research is revealing the benefits of receiving the Webster technique throughout pregnancy for the prevention of dystocia.
And It's Safe...
Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy is both effective and safe, which means that expecting mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically as well as mentally.
