Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is vital to both mom and baby. In our office you will find that moms who get adjusted during their pregnancy have both easier births and decreased labor times. Dr. Sabrina Sanchez is certified and proficient in the Webster Technique, which is a technique specifically designed for pregnant moms. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. This adjustment allows for moms to be relaxed while face down in pregnancy pillows. Our mom's love this because it takes the pressure of gravity off their spine.
Biomechanically, when there is sacral subluxation (a misalignment of the spine of the sacral bone) it may contribute to a difficult labor (ie.dystocia) caused by inadequate uterine function, inadequate pelvic contraction and baby malpresentation. Your chiropractor, Dr. Sabrina Sanchez identifies and corrects this sacral misalignment and in turn reduces dystocia.
When expectant mothers are told their baby is in the breech position it is imperative to know that the Webster technique helps allow the baby to get in the best position possible. Being in a position where the baby is breech can often cause in-utero constraint and cause unnecessary stress on a developing nervous system. Babies often move out of the breech position after mom gets adjusted because it allows for the pelvis to be in proper alignment giving room for baby to move around freely.
