Natural Chiropractic Pregnancy Care in North Orange County: Webster Technique
Pregnancy is an exciting event, but it can also be a physical ordeal for expectant mothers. Profound changes in the body can make for dramatic alterations in spinal alignment, which in turn can produce or aggravate a wide range of unpleasant symptoms. But while previous generations of pregnant women may have been forced simply to live with the discomfort, you can enjoy a smoother nine months with the aid of the natural pregnancy care options at North Orange County Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Brea, California.
Your body has to go through some major changes to nurture a new life, especially once the embryo grows into a fetus. As the womb expands and you put on extra weight, you may adopt a "swaybacked" stance that puts pressure on your back, possibly causing subluxation of the vertebrae and pinched nerves. Common results may include:
- Lower Back Pain
- Neck Pain and Stiffness
- Sciatica Symptoms
- Tingling or Pain in the Arms and Hands
At the same time, impaired nerve function may aggravate hormonal imbalances, circulatory problems and other common side effects of pregnancy. This may mean you suffer unduly from:
- Mood Swings
- Sleep Disorders
- Edema (swelling) of the Hands or Feet
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment For Mothers
Chiropractic pregnancy care is a safe, natural way to optimize your physical function and help relieve these troubling symptoms. Our prenatal chiropractor, Dr. Neha Patel, is Webster Certified and highly skilled at performing gentle adjustments to improve spinal alignment and take pressure away from the nerves. This not only eliminates the pain and other discomforts directly caused by nerve impingement, but it also promotes better overall circulation and functional balance to help keep your other symptoms in line.
Our prenatal chiropractor, Dr. Patel, also provides important modalities known as the Webster technique. This technique addresses the changes that need to occur with the pelvic region to enable an easy, normal delivery. If you have a subluxation in the sacral vertebrae, the baby may not be able to shift into a head-down position in the womb. This condition, known as dystocia, may force a breech birth and a Cesarean section. The Webster technique gently adjusts the sacral area to make it easier for these preparations for child-birth to occur.
Last but not least, Dr. Patel can help you support your own best health during pregnancy by making specific nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. Your baby's health is directly tied to your own health and well-being, so anything we can do to keep you well can help keep your baby well also.
