Searching for a drug-free option for managing pregnancy pain? Planning on a natural birth but worried about a possible C-section? Chiropractic care may be able to help. Our Rockville Centre chiropractor, Dr. John Gehnrich, is an intuitive Holistic Wellness Expert who is also experienced with the Webster Technique, a specialized adjustment technique for expectant mothers.
Here are three ways chiropractic prenatal care can make a difference for your pregnancy:
1. Pre-conception wellness support. Nutrition and alignment is necessary to free the body of nerve interference, enhance overall wellness, and support successful egg fertilization. Prior to conception, our focus with chiropractic care is to prepare both men and women to become parents by enhancing wellness from within.
2. Drug-free pregnancy pain-relief. A woman’s body undergoes profound changes during pregnancy to accommodate the growing fetus. For example, a woman’s center of gravity will gradually shift downwards, increasing nerve compression and pressure on the sciatic nerve, lower back, buttocks, and pelvis. Receiving regular chiropractic care during pregnancy can help to alleviate this pain without the need for medication. Chiropractic care may also help to relieve first trimester morning sickness. This is especially helpful for busy mothers who need to keep up their energy for working, exercising, or caring for other children.
3. Natural birth. Worried about a C-section? If so, finding out that your baby is in the breech position can be a frustrating and upsetting realization. If a natural birth with minimal or no medical intervention is part of your birth plan, chiropractic care from our Rockville center chiropractor may be able to help the baby turn. When a woman is properly adjusted prior to giving birth, she may also experience less back labor as the pelvis is more open to releasing the baby naturally.
Chiropractic care can help to manage pain, reduce the risk for a C-section due to a breech birth, and improve labor outcomes. For more information on our approach to prenatal care, schedule a non-obligation consultation with Dr. John Gehnrich.
