Why Use a Prenatal Chiropractor
There are a number of factors that can impact the health of the woman who is pregnant, including the fact that she is carrying an extra 25 to 30 pounds of additional weight during pregnancy. This can have a dramatic impact on the spine and other joints, and a prenatal chiropractor can help to ensure that the spine is aligned and that the level of comfort she has is increased overall.
A prenatal chiropractor can help with the positioning of the baby so that they are in the right position for birth. Room in the womb is the major reason why a baby does not turn and instead is in a breech position. A prenatal chiropractor can work on pelvic alignment as well as the ligaments and muscles in the pelvic region to help provide the additional room needed for a properly positioned baby.
In general a prenatal chiropractor can help pregnant women have a shorter length of time that they are in labor. This is likely due to the better alignment of the pelvic region which allows things to progress faster and with less pain and complications. Even the nausea often accompanying pregnancy can be reduced, along with the general alleviation of pain all over the body during and after pregnancy.
The Webster Technique
This is a specific technique developed by Dr. Larry Webster, and its successful use is why it now bears his name. This approach has proven to be much less traumatic than the obstetric approach, known as external cephalic version, and much more effective as well. It has a success rate above 80%, which means that c-section births can be avoided, making things better all around for baby and mother.
