Pregnancy Chiropractic in Lincoln

At Adjusted Life Chiropractic, we are passionate about helping moms-to-be experience the healthiest and most enjoyable pregnancy possible. Did you know that chiropractic care during pregnancy is extremely safe and beneficial? As a pregnancy chiropractor, Dr. Spencer uses an instrument, as well as the Webster Technique, to provide gentle adjustments that can help both Mom and Baby.

Benefits for Mom

According to research, being under chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy can decrease labor times and labor pains; these are the two big reasons why a mom’s labor doesn’t progress, resulting in more interventions that are also costly. Did you know that a C-section is three times more expensive — $24,000 compared to $8,000 at a local hospital — than a traditional, vaginal birth?

Other benefits of chiropractic during pregnancy include relief from low back pain and sciatica that’s caused by misalignment. Right around the end of the first trimester into the second, the Relaxin hormone is being produced. It causes the sacroiliac joints, which are not very stable, to move even easier so you can have your baby.


Benefits for Baby

With chiropractic, Mom won’t be under as much stress so that she can produce the correct hormones so the baby can grow perfectly. Dr. Spencer can ensure that her pelvis is aligned properly providing her baby with the most optimal space to grow. Baby can also be in the best position possible for birth.

Also, when a mom has a fight-or-flight stress response, and labor’s not progressing as it should, it’s critical that the oxytocin hormone is released so that birth can start. We see moms that are not under chiropractic care sometimes struggle with having their labor progress, leading to increased risk of intervetion.

Infertility also can occur during a time of fight or flight because the body doesn’t care about getting pregnant; it’s only concerned with running away from the stress. We use technology to see what nerves are firing and if a patient is in the sympathetic fight-or-flight mode, which we can help them get out of  quicker.

The Webster Technique

Dr. Spencer is also Webster-certified. He uses this technique primarily for moms-to-be to help them experience a great pregnancy and positive birth outcome. The technique is gentle and safe and involves a pelvic-specific adjustment. Optimal alignment in this area provides the baby with maximized room in the womb, with a relaxing of muscles and ligaments in the area.

Along with using Webster, Dr. Spencer also performs some soft tissue work to ensure that the ligaments and muscles are not taut and tender.
