During pregnancy, a women’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to the weight that is gained, a mother’s center of gravity changes. It shifts to the front of her pelvis and this is not a natural position. It can result in added stress and discomfort in the lower back and various joints in the pelvis. Throughout the pregnancy, as the baby grows, the mother gains more weight and the back becomes more stressed, This causes the lordotic curvature in her low back to increase. If there has been a history of lower back problems, there is a good chance that the pregnancy will aggravate the condition. This may lead to difficulty performing daily routines and create difficulties in labor.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50-70% of pregnant women experience lower back pain at some point. The back pain generally peaks around the third trimester because this is when the baby gains the most weight. There are many more problems that the stress on the lower back can create such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation, and much more.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is prenatal chiropractic care?

Prenatal chiropractic care refers to chiropractic treatments during pregnancy. Your body undergoes many changes during pregnancy. One of these changes involves the loosening of the ligaments and joints to prepare the body for labor and delivery.

Though a normal part of pregnancy, sometimes the joints loosen too much, causing misalignments that may affect the pregnancy and pain. Prenatal chiropractic care at Texas Functional Health Centers focuses on improving spine and joint alignment during pregnancy to reduce pain and improve stability.

Who benefits from prenatal chiropractic care?

Any pregnant person looking for a non-drug treatment to alleviate their pregnancy-related symptoms may benefit from prenatal chiropractic care. However, consult your OB/GYN before scheduling your chiropractic visit.

Prenatal chiropractic care is safe for most pregnancies. However, it’s not recommended if you’re at risk of going into premature labor or have preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy).

The team at Texas Functional Health Centers includes board-certified providers with advanced training in prenatal chiropractic care. They perform adjustments to treat back pain, hip pain, and sciatica. Prenatal chiropractic care may also improve pregnancy-related nausea.

Prenatal chiropractic care also benefits the baby. When your pelvis is misaligned, it limits the space your developing baby has to grow. This misalignment may also affect the baby’s positioning for delivery, leading to a breech baby.

What can I expect during prenatal chiropractic care?

You can expect patient-centered treatment when you visit Texas Functional Health Centers for prenatal chiropractic care. The team listens intently to your concerns and goals and asks about your pregnancy and medical history.

They perform a physical exam, paying close attention to the alignment of your spine, hips, and pelvis. When performing chiropractic treatments, the team uses techniques to avoid any pressure on your abdomen.

They also provide you with exercises and stretches you can do at home.

What is the Webster technique?

The Webster technique is a type of prenatal chiropractic care that focuses on the pelvis and sacrum, reducing stress on the uterus. This technique helps position the baby for labor and delivery. More specifically, to prevent or treat breech positioning.

The team at Texas Functional Health Centers has advanced training in the Webster technique.
