Providing Support through your journey

Prenatal Chiropractor St. George

Our St. George Prenatal Chiropractor, Dr. Landon, is certified in Webster Technique. Webster Technique not only works to align key structures to prepare your body for birth, but it also focuses on releasing tight muscles and ligaments.

With You Every Step of the Way

Pregnancy is a continuous process of hormonal fluctuations and physical changes that place a toll on your posture and cause pain.

Additionally, the size of your baby is constantly increasing, which gradually shifts your center of gravity. This will have some negative impacts on your muscles and pelvis.

To relieve these aches and pains, our Webster Technique certified doctors will use various techniques that can help you relieve symptoms naturally during pregnancy. 

The benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy

Pregnancy Chiropractic Care Relieves Pain

Your prenatal chiropractor in St. George will ensure that your spine is aligned, then work on your muscles, joints, and ligaments to increase their stability.

After a few sessions, you will notice a drastic change in your symptoms, as well as the ability to perform day-to-day activities.
Besides relieving your pain, chiropractic care will also lower the risk of any musculoskeletal injuries, which is super important for pregnant women.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care Reduces Nausea

One of the cardinal signs of being pregnant is the constant feeling of nausea. Fortunately, the physical manipulation of your autonomic nervous system will temper down this reaction and help you feel better.

If your nausea becomes insupportable despite chiropractic care and medications, make sure to mention that to your doctor on your next prenatal care visit.

Helps Optimize Proper Baby Position (i.e., Webster’s technique)

As you may know, if your baby is presenting in a breech position, vaginal delivery is not an option. In this case, your doctor will recommend a C-section, especially if the breech is only discovered during your delivery day.

Fortunately, there is a method known as Webster’s technique, which stabilizes the sacrum and modifies fetal positioning. To perform this technique, you need to consult with a chiropractor with special certification. However, you do not have to look far since all of our chiropractors are Webster technique certified.

Reduces the duration of labor

According to studies, women who receive chiropractic care during their pregnancy will have shorter labor durations. The exact numbers lay between a 25% to a 31% shorter duration.

Experts believe this is the result of the improved alignment of the pelvic organs, decreasing the intrauterine pressure and allowing the baby to get through the birth canal more easily.

Improves postpartum outcome

While this benefit may be a bit beyond the scope of this article, postpartum bleeding and pain are common complications that often reflect the quality of prenatal care.

Seeing a chiropractor before delivering your baby will smooth out labor and lower the risk of complications. Moreover, many new moms complain of backaches and neck pain when they breastfeed their children. In this case, chiropractic care can help you even after your baby is born.

Gentle Adjustments

Using specialized techniques, our Prenatal Chiropractor ensures safe and gentle adjustments that are appropriate for any stage during pregnancy. These adjustments aim to correct spinal misalignments, enhance nervous system function, and promote overall well-being. Our priority is to make your child feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process.
