Prenatal Care Q & A
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Pregnant Women?
Dr. Gehnrich offers holistic chiropractic care for women throughout their journey toward motherhood, from pre-conception up to delivery. His care and adjustments help to improve and maintain the mother’s wellbeing and health, which contributes to a healthy pregnancy.
A woman’s body goes through significant physical changes to accommodate the baby growing inside her, putting pressure and stress on her whole body, but especially affecting her back and hips.
Changes during pregnancy put extra pressure on a woman’s sciatic nerve, which can cause pain in the lower back that radiates down through the legs. This compression of the nerves inhibits the proper flow of nerves and blood vessels, which support the health and development of the baby. Safe, manual adjustments relieve the pressure and the resulting pain.
Dr. Gehnrich is trained in the Webster Technique, a chiropractic treatment that relieves misalignment and muscle tension in the pelvic region. The Webster Technique is well known for helping the baby naturally turn out of breech position and get into the correct position for delivery, reducing the risk of needing a C-section delivery.
Women know the importance of a healthy diet, proper exercise, and stress avoidance during pregnancy, but they may not realize that Dr. Gehnrich specializes in helping patients with those aspects of their life. He’s available to help evaluate lifestyle issues and recommend changes that support the health of the mother and baby.
Dr. Gehnrich’s chiropractic care helps women who are trying to become pregnant by improving their overall health and wellbeing, which can prepare the body for fertilization.
Dr. Gehnrich offers chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to correct any misalignment and reduce discomfort, including lower back and sciatica pain.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
Yes. You are able to have chiropractic care safely during pregnancy. Dr. Gehnrich is specially trained and experienced in providing gentle care for women during this exciting time of their lives.
Further benefits of prenatal chiropractic care include the noninvasive nature of chiropractic care and the reduction of the need for any prescription drugs during pregnancy.
Why Should I Have Chiropractic Care While I’m Pregnant?
Chiropractic care can reduce many of the physical aches and pains caused by the shifting of your body as your baby grows and puts pressure on your spine and internal organs.
In addition to minimizing discomfort, chiropractic care can help to keep you active, which brings a number of benefits to your overall wellbeing. The healthier and stronger you are throughout your pregnancy, the stronger and more prepared you will be for delivery and motherhood.
