Chiropractic care is an essential part of your pregnancy. Preexisting imbalances in your spine and pelvis become stressed during pregnancy, often causing pain and discomfort. Specific chiropractic adjustments allow your body to adapt to the structural changes that come along with your changing body. Chiropractic care can relieve back pain and discomfort during pregnancy by reducing spinal stress. It is a wonderful, natural addition to your prenatal care.

Chiropractic care also provides comfort for your baby. As your baby develops, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth. If your pelvis is unbalanced during pregnancy, the ligaments that hold your uterus in place can become torqued and twisted, a condition known as intrauterine constraint. This constraint limits the space of the developing baby and prevents the baby from getting into the best possible position for birth. This can slow labor, add pain and distress to mom and baby, and lead to unnecessary interventions, such as pitocin, episiotomies, vacuum extraction, and even c-sections. Chiropractic care will restore balance to your pelvis, leading to a safer and easier delivery for you and your baby.

Dr. Marla is one of the few chiropractors in Charlotte, NC who is certified in Webster Technique, a chiropractic analysis and adjustment technique which improves the bio-mechanical function of the pelvis and decreases intrauterine constraint during pregnancy. This will allow for a faster, safer and more natural birth for mom and baby. Visit the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association website for more information on chiropractic care and pregnancy.
