When you're expecting a bundle of joy, it's an exciting time. You have so much to look forward to, but sometimes, getting to that point isn't the easiest. Pregnancy can bring about back pain and other soreness, among other unpleasant symptoms. However, at Schwabe Chiropractic, serving South Denver, CO, and the surrounding region, we offer assistance from a prenatal chiropractor - Dr. Kati Schwabe.
What Happens During Prenatal Chiropractic
The first part of the visit will consist of our prenatal chiropractor asking you to fill out a medical history form. Once complete, you'll be able to meet with our chiropractor. Our practitioner will ask you questions about your pregnancy, such as how far along you are and what pregnancy symptoms you're contending with. Through this information, our practitioner will be able to create a plan especially for you. It will be both safe and effective.
How Chiropractors Help
One of your treatments might be chiropractic adjustments. During an adjustment, our practitioner will have you lie on a table. While during a standard adjustment you may be placed on your front, we may need to reposition you during a prenatal visit so we're not placing all that stress on the unborn baby.
The Webster technique is a specialized form of chiropractic adjustment for pregnant women that optimizes pelvic and lower back alignment, which can ease your back pain. We may even help you better prepare for labor and delivery. In fact, chiropractic care has been known to reduce labor and delivery time.
Part of your care may include exercise therapy. This particular treatment can help ease any soreness or pain you're experiencing during your pregnancy and ensure you stay flexible while you're pregnant.
At Scwabe Chiropractic, serving South Denver, CO, and the neighboring communities, Dr. Schwabe is a prenatal chiropractor with experience helping women. We offer safe techniques and can create a plan for you based on your specific needs while you're pregnant.
