Prenatal Chiropractic

Easier and safer delivery with chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy with a Certified Webster Technique practitioner.
“Getting adjusted regularly while I was pregnant with my second child helped me stay comfortable as I got bigger. The adjustments helped alleviate sciatic pain in my leg during the ninth month of my pregnancy. Thank you Dr. Lara!” ~Angela F.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, more women are choosing chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. There are several physiological and endocrinological changes – protruding abdomen and increased back curve, pelvic changes and postural adaptations -- that occur during pregnancy that result in a misaligned spine and pelvis. We have treated many pregnant women who have benefited from chiropractic care and the Webster technique.

Dr. Lara Klein performing a prenatal chiropractic adjustment.Our chiropractors are trained to correct spinal, pelvic and cranial misalignments before, during and after pregnancy. When misaligned, these areas of the body create an imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments, which may affect the body's ability to function optimally. Chiropractic treatment can relieve back, neck and joint pain, nausea, and prevent potential Cesarean delivery due to breech presentation.

Dr. Lara Klein is a certified Webster Technique prenatal chiropractor. This technique involves a specific sacral analysis and adjustment, which can be used throughout pregnancy to detect and alleviate sacral imbalance and optimize pelvic neuro-biomechanics that may be altered due to an increase of hormones, weight gain and postural adaptations.

“Having recently delivered a child, I have first-hand experience on the discomforts during pregnancy. Regular chiropractic adjustments allowed me to maintain spinal health and not be limited by back and joint pain. I was able to naturally deliver a baby boy who received his first adjustment within an hour after birth!” ~Dr. Lara Klein

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development during pregnancy. With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth, helps to avoid breech and posterior presentations. Correct baby positioning during birth also eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) resulting in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.
