Due to all of the changes that occur during pregnancy, it is common to have back and joint pain. Some women experience pain that extends down the leg, known as sciatica. Pain in a pregnant woman increases the stress in her body. Since many women are cautious about what they put into their bodies to help with the pain, chiropractic offers a safe, effective, and non-pharmacologic form of treatment.
Research has shown that chiropractic care is safe and effective for managing back pain during pregnancy. Additionally, improved pelvic alignment can have a positive effect on the birth experience by helping decrease dystocia (difficult labor).
Webster technique is a specific technique and form of adjustment that is used to restore proper alignment and motion to the pelvis. It involves the analysis and gentle correction of pelvic misalignment and also addresses soft tissue structures including sacrotuberous and round ligaments.
