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 your chiropractor during pregnancy, Dr. Spencer uses an instrument, as well as the Webster Technique, to provide gentle adjustments.

Prenatal Chiropractic Benefits for Mom

According to research, being under chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy can decrease labor and delivery times as well as 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 can be up to three times more expensive than a traditional, vaginal birth?

Other benefits of regular chiropractic during pregnancy include relief from low back pain and sciatica that are 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. In short, pelvic balance is restored for your growing baby while unpleasant pregnancy symptoms are relieved.

Benefits for Baby

With chiropractic, Mom won’t be under as much stress so that she can produce the correct hormones. This allows baby to grow perfectly and potentially avoid breech position. 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 birth position possible in the last month of pregnancy.

When a mom has a fight-or-flight stress response and labor’s not progressing as it should, it’s critical that oxytocin is released. This helps the birthing process to begin. We see moms that are not under chiropractic care sometimes struggle with having their labor times increase, leading to an increased risk of intervention.

Infertility also can occur during a time of fight or flight because the body doesn’t care about getting pregnant. Instead, 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

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, positive birth outcome, and optimally functioning nervous system. The technique is gentle and safe and involves a pelvic-specific adjustment to help avoid intrauterine constraint. 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 soft tissue work to ensure that ligaments and muscles are not taut in pregnant women.
