Chiropractic for Pregnancy
Atlanta Prenatal Care
Chiropractic care focuses on maintaining positive health within the spinal column, bone geometry, discs, and all connective nerves without the use of prescription medication or invasive surgery.
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta are all experienced at providing adjustments that realign various joints throughout the body, but specifically those that are found in the spine.
This is intended to reduce spinal nerve stress, which directly influences your overall health.
Although the concept of Chiropractic care is most often associated with chronic pain relief, it also provides a world of support for pregnant women throughout Atlanta.
Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women
Over 50% of all women who are expecting a new baby experience moderate to severe back pain during their pregnancy. Of those who receive Chiropractic treatment during their pregnancy, 75% – 85% notice immediate pain relief after just one examination.
Even more impressive is the fact that women who receive ongoing Chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy tend to experience a smoother delivery.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnant Women In Atlanta?
As of 2016, there are no recorded instances where Chiropractic care has had some damaging or harmful effect on pregnant women. Every Chiropractor at AICA Atlanta is specially trained to work with women who are pregnant and invest a significant amount of time developing treatment solutions that support fertility, as well as pregnancy wellness.
Our Chiropractors know exactly how to offer various adjustments that provide immediate back pain relief, without applying unnecessary pressure on the abdomen. They can also provide custom exercise routines that are safe to follow through with, which helps women maintain a healthy system while carrying the weight of a developing baby.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
There are a variety of physiological and endocrinological adjustments that take place during pregnancy, which is meant to help create an environment that is conducive to developing a healthy baby.
In cases where pregnant women experience some misalignment within their spine or joints, they can experience some unfortunate effects that include:
- Abnormal pelvic adjustments
- Postural adaptations
- Protruding back curve
When expectant mothers experience some misalignment that affects their pelvis, it becomes much more difficult for the baby to get into the correct delivery position. In turn, this environment an significantly alter the mother’s ability to experience a healthy and natural birth, often leading to some invasive interference like a c-section.
Other benefits of receiving Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy includes:
- Minimizing nausea
- Experiencing a shorter labor process
- Preventing or eliminating back pain
- Preventing or eliminating neck pain
- Preventing the potential need for a cesarean delivery
The Webster Technique
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta use a particular type of adjustment known as The Webster Technique, which helps establish appropriate balance within the pelvis of pregnant women.
This technique significantly reduces the amount of stress that is placed in the woman’s uterus and all surrounding ligaments, which has been clinically shown to support optimal fetal positioning.
According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, The Webster Technique produces an 82% success rate when it comes to turning babies into the vertex position.
Supporting an environment that is optimal for birthing eliminates the risk for dystocia (difficult labor), which leads to an easier and safer delivery for the mother and child.
