Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be beneficial for the normal physiological function of the mother and baby. During pregnancy, chiropractic care focuses on alignment and balance in the musculoskeletal structures of the pelvis. Proper pelvic alignment helps the mother have an easier pregnancy and can also ease the birth process! This is done through the Webster technique.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nervous system and balances maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments. This optimizes uterine function and allows for a safer, easier birth. Dr. Calahan has completed her Certification of the Webster technique Through the ICPA.
Chiropractic care is focused on removing nerve dysfunction, so we can move and function at our highest potential. A chiropractic adjustment is a type of manual therapy that seeks to realign joint subluxations. Subluxations are small positional changes in the joint with accompanying decrease in motion and soft tissue tension.
a Chiropractic adjustment is the application of a precise movement to a specific part of the joint that corrects the subluxation, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to heal on its own.. adjustments also serve to improve movement within a subluxation, or restricted joint. Joint motion can become restricted for a variety of reasons, which can lead to decreased range of motion and musculoskeletal pain. Adjustments can improve tissue elasticity, reduce muscle spasms, improve joint articulation, and reduce pain.
