Chiropractic care is safe and effective during your pregnancy! As your belly compensates for a growing baby so must your spine, pelvis, and nervous system. Growth, as well as hormonal and chemical changes, is coordinated by the nervous system. It’s imperative that your nervous system responds appropriately to all the changes in you and your baby. This means a healthy spine is also imperative!
Dr. Schwabe is nationally certified in the Webster Technique, which is a specific Chiropractic analysis and adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to improve sacral alignment, balance the pelvis, and relieve any tense muscles and ligaments surrounding the pelvis, which may be affecting the uterus.
Dr. Schwabe knows that this is a very special time in your life and that this may be the first time you’ve been to a Chiropractor. She is happy to take the time to answer any questions that you may have and is happy to work within your comfort zone. In order to accommodate your pregnant belly, we may use pillows or a table with a drop-away pelvic piece to make you more comfortable. There are many ways to adjust you gently so that you can be at ease in your care.
