Why Visit a Prenatal Chiropractor?
Dr Jassal focuses in prenatal chiropractic providing safe and gentle care to relieve back pain during pregnancy. Chiropractic not only improves back, hip, or neck pain and headaches but it promotes the overall health of an expecting mother.
It is very important to have an aligned spine and a properly functioning nervous system throughout pregnancy because it benefits both the mother and developing baby.
Prenatal chiropractic helps to support the hormonal and structural changes a woman’s body experiences during her pregnancy – changes which are occurring for the right reasons, but nonetheless, these can exaggerate spinal misalignments and cause damage to the mother and unborn child.
As a result of addressing spinal misalignments, the expectant mothers who undergo prenatal chiropractic care at Jassal Chiropractic report a decrease in the “usual” pregnancy symptoms such as sore back and hips, nausea and low energy.
Proper spinal alignment also ensures that the expectant mother’s pelvis is properly aligned; this is vital in order to allow for maximum comfort during the final months of pregnancy and delivery, as the baby must pass through the pelvis during the trip through the birth canal.
The Webster Technique
The Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique specifically developed to address the pelvis and supporting ligaments which support the uterus during pregnancy. The proper functioning of these ligaments is essential for the baby’s comfort in the womb and gives the baby a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth decreasing the likelihood of breech positioning.
Dr. Jassal is certified to perform the Webster Technique, and many women who have benefited from this procedure report fast labours (less than 5 hours) and relatively easy, drug-free births.
