Pregnancy is an extraordinary time when the body is performing one of life’s biggest miracles; producing life. However, for most mothers-to-be, pregnancy may not feel as wondrous as the body transforms and discomfort settles in. Many expecting mothers begin to feel lower back and hip pain in their 2ndor 3rd trimester but oftentimes, they do not know where or how to receive comfort. Luckily, chiropractic care during pregnancy not only provides relief, but the Webster Technique is effective in promoting a healthy pregnancy for both mom and baby!
The Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique that works on improving pelvis and sacrum misalignments which can create tension on the supporting soft tissues and ultimately lead to constraints on the uterus. Our Vancouver chiropractors reduce constraints and stress on the uterus by establishing balance in the pelvis and supporting ligaments. When the ligaments supporting the uterus are balanced and tension is released, pregnancy-related pain can improve.
And not only can the Webster Technique relieve discomfort in the groin, pubic, hip and lower back areas during pregnancy, the technique may promote minimize the chance of a difficult labour (dystocia). “Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby malpresentation. The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia. The resulting tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.”*
Jassal Chiropractic offers safe and gentle chiropractic care during pregnancy that will minimize stress on the mother’s body, help the baby assume optimal positioning and facilitate a relatively easier birth.
