Just ask any mother or mother-to-be. They will probably tell you that pregnancy can be a real pain! Studies show that about half of all expectant mothers will develop low back pain at some point during their pregnancy. This is especially true during the third trimester when the baby’s head descends further into the pelvis causing pressure on a woman’s back, legs and buttocks, often irritating the sciatic nerve. For women already suffering from low back pain, the problem can become even worse.
Dr. Bonnie knows the changes and physical stresses that come with pregnancy, labor and delivery. That is why she is committed to helping mothers find comfort during this exciting time. She is certified in the Webster Technique, which is specific for analyzing and adjusting pregnant women in order to restore proper joint movement and to balance the muscles and ligaments of the pelvis. This helps to reduce the causes of intrauterine constraint and allows the baby to be in the best possible position for birth.
Is chiropractic during pregnancy safe? ABSOLUTELY!
In fact, the American Pregnancy Association supports and encourages expecting mothers to find a chiropractor who specializes in prenatal care. Dr. Bonnie received regular chiropractic care through all three of her pregnancies. She credits adjustments for her healthy, happy pregnancies.
