At Oly Family Chiropractic we use a specific analysis for pregnant moms called Webster Technique. This technique is used along with regular spinal checks and adjustments. This is used during pregnancy specifically to assess for:
- Proper pelvic alignment
- Uterine ligament tension
- Muscle imbalances
The adjustments done during pregnancy are very gentle and specific. While using the Webster Technique, the doctor will use gentle contact points along with the adjustments to help the ligaments and muscles unwind and allow for the pelvis to naturally settle into place. Chiropractic is not only safe and effective for mom and is shown to help make labor easier, but it is vital for baby as well.
