Prenatal Chiropractic in San Diego

Our bodies are designed to function at optimal levels to maintain good health and wellness. This becomes even more important during pregnancy. Chiropractic is completely safe, effective, gentle and totally all-natural.

The strain on the woman’s joints and muscles, balance issues, and pressure from an enlarged abdomen during pregnancy are substantial. Pain and discomfort, especially in the third trimester, are common. Making sure the woman is comfortable and pain-free is good for her and the baby.

What Can I Expect?

Our chiropractor is skilled in assessing a pregnant woman’s spine, pelvis and uterus for misalignments. Relaxin, a hormone produced during pregnancy, allows the pelvis to expand. This provides extra space for the baby to move and helps prepare women to give birth.

Relaxin also can allow misalignments to happen much easier. Low back, hip and pelvic pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines and fatigue may occur as a result. Other issues that might present are neck pain and digestive issues.

When a female’s pelvis is unbalanced, it doesn’t allow the baby to position itself correctly. If the baby doesn’t have enough room to line up properly, it can result in a breech presentation. This can cause problems for both the baby and the woman when it comes time to give birth. In many cases, a C-section is necessary to deliver a healthy child.

Can You Benefit?

Our ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) certified chiropractor is trained in the Webster Technique. This method allows us to determine if there are problems with the sacrum, psoas muscle and pelvic ligaments. This ensures optimal positioning of the baby and a relaxing of uterine constraints.

Making adjustments to the pelvis can relieve some of the discomfort that accompanies pregnancy. Webster has also been found to be effective in resolving breech presentations so the baby can get into the proper birth position. Our practice members find chiropractic care provides easier labor, a faster delivery and a safer experience for both mother and baby.
