Pregnancy

Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care
At Midwest Chiropractic & Wellness, we understand the importance of a healthy pregnancy. The function of the nerve system and spinal column is needed to create a viable environment for baby while still placing a high priority on Mom’s well-being. 

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic adjustments offers gentle non-invasive benefits for expecting mothers to create balance in the nervous system. When moms have a high functioning nervous system and better managed stress, their bodies are able to adapt to the changes occurring throughout pregnancy. Dramatic physical, mental, and emotional changes throughout pregnancy can cause increased spinal column and nervous system stress. A pre-natal chiropractor, like Dr. Jenny, will find where the spine has increased nerve disturbance (stress) and correct it, allowing the nervous system to function more optimally. A well balance spinal column typically doesn’t have symptoms.

Webster Technique
The Webster technique is a technique used by chiropractors to reduce the tension and torsion in the uterus which could ultimately affect progression of labor, optimal fetal positioning, and a natural pregnancy and birth.

Research
Even there are not a lot of published research proving the benefits of chiropractic, listed are some research articles on pregnancy and chiropractic.

Chiropractic care may help reduce pregnancy pain and symptoms
There is research to support chiropractic and its relationship to the reduction of negative symptoms during pregnancy and birth. In one study, 10 out of 11 women had relief of pain and did not exhibit sacroiliac dysfunction any longer after they were treated with chiropractic adjustments.

“…improvement of their intra-uterine constraint”
In another study, 69% of 81 patients that received chiropractic care because of intra-uterine constraint benefited from chiropractic care. Because chiropractic adjustments can help balance the pelvis and uterus by increase structural and nerve function, the women in the study showed improvement of their intra-uterine constraint after chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic care shows to be effective and safe for pregnant women
Published evidence suggests regular chiropractic care may improve the probability of successful natural parturition. This study not only shows the effectiveness of chiropractic and pregnancy, but also shows how safe chiropractic care is for pregnant women.
