Many women wonder what the best kind of treatment they can get is for them and their baby during pregnancy.The American Pregnancy Association recently published several articles explaining why chiropractic is so effective for pregnant women.
The APA states that the reason for which women should regularly visit a chiropractor during pregnancy is that “during pregnancy, there are several physiologocal and endorinological changes that occur in preparation for creation the environment for the developing baby. The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joint, protrduing abdomen or increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural adaptations.”
“Establishing pelvic balance and aligment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care duing pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the baby. This restricion is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.”
The late Dr. Larry Webster developed and adjustment valled the Wesbter Technique which “enables chiropractors to establish balance in the women’s pelvis and reduce undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments. This balanced state in the pelvis makes it easier for a breech baby to turn naturally.”
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics notes in the July/August 2002 issue that 82% of babies turned vertex when docotors used the Webster Technique.
