Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Growing a tiny human is a lot of work! Conception and birth are a beautiful and wonderful thing, however, it can take a toll on our body. There are a lot of physiological and endocrinological changes that occur such as pelvic misalignment and tightening of the uterine muscles.
When the pelvis is misaligned, it decreases the amount of room for the baby to grow and develop. It can also cause the baby to not be positioned properly for birth. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to birth interventions such as c-sections.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy gives you and your baby the opportunity to experience a healthy and happy delivery. There are multiple benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy such as:
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Strengthening immune function
- Improving sleep and energy levels
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing potential for a cesarean delivery
Here at Summit Family Chiropractic, Dr. Evan Pridmore is certified in the Webster Technique. Being Webster-certified means the doctor has been trained to work specifically with pelvic balance during pregnancy. The Webster Technique helps align the pelvis, relax the uterus and get baby into the optimal position for birth.

Not only is chiropractic safe during pregnancy but it is also very effective.
