Chiropractic for Pregnancy?
Have you ever thought about chiropractic care in Worcester for pregnancy? Pregnancy causes physical stress for most women and usually they feel it in their lower backs.
A woman’s body adapts substantially during childbirth to accommodate her baby’s growth. A mother’s center of gravity changes due to weight gained during pregnancy, moving toward the front of her pelvis and this is not a normal position. This results in discomfort in various joints along with lower back pain. As the pregnancy progresses and the baby grows, increased stress is applied to the back and becomes the reason for the lordotic curvature in the lower back to expand. There is a strong possibility that the situation will be aggravated by pregnancy if there is a documented history of back problems. This can result in difficulty with daily activities and can create problems in labor.
50-70 percent of pregnant women experience low-back issues at some point, according to the American Pregnancy Association. Most occurrences happen during the third trimester, due to the child being the heaviest during this period. Other symptoms such as knee pain, stomach pain, indigestion, and many more can be derived from initial stress in the lower back.

The Webster technique is a chiropractic therapy that works to balance the pelvis and sacrum while also reducing stress to the utero-sacral and round ligaments. When pelvic and sacral imbalances are corrected the common aches and pains of pregnancy are resolved and the baby is typically able to choose an optimal position for birth. Evidence has shown that women under prenatal chiropractic care report easier births, shorter labor times and lower rates of interventions.
