Don’t Make Pregnancy Harder Than It Has To Be

Pregnant patient being adjustedWhen it comes to prenatal chiropractic there are two main goals: survive pregnancy and prepare for a positive birth experience!

Your body goes through many physical changes during pregnancy, often leading to pain and discomfort. The loosening of ligaments and change in center of gravity can lead to secondary conditions such as:

  • Back pain
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Round ligament pain
  • Pubic bone pain

At Thrive Chiropractic, our pregnant patients have experienced improvements with these concerns and so much more! By gently correcting shifts in the spine and pelvis, your body is better able to cope with pregnancy challenges and you have a better chance of an easier labor and birth. Better yet, the same adjustment that helps your body hurt less is also helping to prepare for a positive birth experience!

Expert Prenatal Care

Through specialized prenatal training we are able to ensure the mom’s spine and pelvis are moving properly and aligned. This removes stress and tension on the uterus and provides your baby with the needed room to move and be positioned in the best way possible, potentially reducing the need for interventions at birth.

Dr. Andrew has received extensive additional training on caring for pregnant patients, including being Webster Certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. The Webster Technique is a method of analyzing and adjusting the pelvis to improve its function, and reducing stress and tension on the surrounding organs and tissues.
While you might think of prenatal care as primarily for the pregnant mom, there are so many benefits for the baby as well. Did you know the #1 most missed factor that affects a child’s health is the birth process? While there are many factors that can affect the growth and development of a newborn, the most frequent contributor is birth trauma.

Interventions and extra stress during birth can show up in many different forms. It’s not just the obvious factors like a C-section or the use of hands, vacuum, or forceps to pull the baby from the birth canal that can be an issue. Prolonged labor and extensive time pushing, shoulder dystocia, or even too quick of a labor can lead to complications for the child.

Extra Complications if Not Treated

These complications can create extra stress on the delicate newborn’s nervous system, especially at the most vulnerable area at the top of their neck. Since this area around the brainstem controls many of the important regulatory functions for the body, symptoms like colic, reflux, poor latch, constipation, and torticollis often follow a stressful birth process.

Even worse, the kids we see later in life struggling with chronic ear infections or sickness, speech delay, anxiety, sensory processing challenges, ADHD, and other chronic health/neurodevelopmental challenges typically started life with birth stress and challenges as a newborn. When the nervous system gets stuck in survival mode at the start of life, optimal growth, development, and neurological function is impaired.
