Chiropractic Care Shown to Promote An Easier Pregnancy and Birthing Process
Pregnancy is a joyous miracle that’s also physically demanding on the mother’s body. Mothers put on weight needed to support a healthy baby, their body changes structure to accommodate birth, and hormones trigger other physical changes. All this is often stressful to the point where stress alone causes pain, too.
At Mauger Medical in Corpus Christi, we implement the Webster technique on expecting mothers so they can have an easier pregnancy and less stressful birthing experience.
How Chiropractic Care Helps With Pregnancy and Birth
The majority of women experience back pain during pregnancy. Weight added to the front puts strain on the back and spine. The good news is you can minimize the strain. Receiving chiropractic care during each trimester can:
- Relieve pain in your neck, back and joints
- Make deliver 31% shorter
- Reduce the risk of needing a c-section
- Quell nausea
- Enjoy a healthier pregnancy
Our doctors will work to keep your back out of pain by keeping it balanced on your pelvis. Proper balance provides more room for your baby to develop and maneuver into position for delivery. The balance and extra room also remove much of the stress and strain on the mother, and with a happier mother, you have a happier, healthier baby.
We also locate and remove any nerve obstructions we find in the spinal column so your organs and immune system can function optimally. We want to keep you strong and healthy so your baby benefits from being born with a robust immune system.
Our clinic has adjustment tables specifically designed to accommodate a pregnant body and your baby.
