For a healthy pregnancy and delivery, you want to make sure that the hips, pelvis and lumbar spine are in optimal alignment. You want to make sure that everything is moving properly during a pregnancy because during this time, it’s more critical than ever before.
At The Chiropractic Doctors, we do different orthopedic tests – which means we’re putting your body in different positions to see how things line up. We’re also checking and testing different muscles, tendons and ligaments to see where tension is and where things are loose and lax. One of the techniques that we use is the Webster Technique. It really is key to make sure that everything is in proper alignment and also everything is moving for an easy and uncomplicated pregnancy, labor and delivery.
You want to make sure that you’re taking care of yourself by staying hydrated, getting plenty of rest, exercising, doing leg stretches and keeping everything loose. Get yourself ready for what can be one of the biggest events (especially for a first time pregnancy) in somebody’s life.
There are also different nutritional protocols that we can recommend for different situations. We may recommend an Omega 3. Vitamin D3 is another and also a really quality pre-natal. There are a couple different ones that we recommend in certain situations as well.
These points are key and should be the things that you want to look for. Find somebody that knows and deals with women who are pregnant and has a success rate.
Often times, we see that women who are under regular care leading up to and after the pregnancy, have delivery times that are much lower, complications are decreased and there is less likelihood of any sort of intrauterine constraint or any issues with the developing child as well. So chiropractic care is not only for the comfort for mom, but also for the health and well-being of the young baby.
