The rapid physical, chemical, and emotional changes brought on by pregnancy can place a significant amount of strain on the body. Chiropractic care can help support your body as it transitions and prepares for childbirth. Common pregnancy symptoms that can be alleviated with chiropractic treatment include:
At Palmercare, we take special care with our pregnant patients and use specialized techniques that are suitable for expectant mothers. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can help with spinal alignment to soothe the aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Two of the techniques we commonly use are Webster’s technique and Logan’s technique.
Webster’s technique is a specialized technique for pregnant patients that balances and relaxes the round ligaments and aligns the lumbo-pelvic region for a more comfortable pregnancy and birth.
Logan’s technique helps align the body and also balances the nervous system. When your nervous system is in sympathetic mode, it’s stressed out and sending blood and nerve flow into the hands and feet, causing swelling and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and making it difficult to sleep, relax, and digest your food properly. Logan’s technique allows us to shift your body back into parasympathetic mode, which sends blood and nerve flow to your core where your baby is developing.
In addition to these special techniques, we’ll coach you and your significant other on exercises, positions, and stretches you can do at home to support you during your pregnancy and childbirth.
