It is widely known that pregnant women suffer from lower back pain throughout their pregnancy. Without being able to take medications, most women don’t have a way to ease the pain. Most people don’t think that chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Especially at Inspire Chiropractic with Dr. Josh Hasty, it is safe for pregnant women to get adjusted. Torque Release Technique, the most gentle but advanced form of chiropractic, allows us to care for infants, children, adults, and yes, pregnant women. Also, Webster Technique is a technique that Dr. Josh Hasty does for pregnant moms. Websters Technique allows the sacrum to sit properly, thus allowing maximum room for the unborn baby. This helps the baby stay in the right position, and it also helps baby’s return to the right position if breech or in another unfavorable position.
Think about it. A woman’s body changes so much throughout pregnancy. With all of these changes, it is very common for subluxations to happen in the spine. As we know, it’s important to correct these subluxations in order for your body to function correctly. If pregnant women don’t go through chiropractic care during pregnancy, think about all the negative changes that can happen to their bodies.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can not only help with lower back pain, but it has also been proven to lessen labor pain and time by up to 60%. For pregnant women everywhere, this is a huge breakthrough!
Going through chiropractic care during pregnancy is not only safe but encouraged. Keeping your spine in proper alignment keeps you—and your baby—healthy throughout your pregnancy.
