For Expecting Mothers
Dr. Prentice is Webster Technique Certified and is experienced with providing chiropractic care for expecting mothers.
While the Webster Technique is most widely known for successfully addressing breech pregnancies, the benefits of this technique should be enjoyed by ALL expecting mothers.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that is designed to specifically address abnormal tension on sacral ligaments and help balance the pelvis in preparation for birth.
It is essential that the mother's pelvis be allowed to move and function normally in order to have the best chance of having an uncomplicated delivery. All mothers will benefit by having an optimally functioning pelvis leading up to delivery.
Studies show that expecting mothers receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy enjoy easier births, experience less complications, shorter labor times and require fewer medical interventions.
Chiropractic during pregnancy can also help relieve common complaints such as sciatica, low back pain, hip pain and headaches as well as other conditions associated with pregnancy.
Dr. Prentice has received special training in the care of women during pregnancy and chiropractic care during all phases of pregnancy is safe and comfortable. The adjustment is gentle and special accommodations are made including the use of pregnancy pillows to allow the mother to comfortably lay face down.
It's important to note that while chiropractic care is extremely valuable during pregnancy, chiropractic is NOT in the practice of obstetrics. Our focus is on the neurological integrity of the pregnant patient and the balance of the pelvic structures. There are no invasive or internal examinations or procedures employed at our office.
