Supporting Health for Pregnancy

Low back pain is a common complaint during pregnancy, with a reported prevalence of 57% to 69%. Although such pain can result in disability, it has been shown that as few as 32% of women report symptoms to their prenatal provider, and only 25% of medical providers recommend any treatment.

Some of the most common pregnancy complaints include sciatica, low back pain, Piriformis Syndrome, Sacroiliac Joint dysfunction, mid-back and rib pain, hip pain, ankle pain, knee pain, postural distortions, headaches, neck pain, and pubic symphysis dysfunction.

Chiropractic Care is Safe for Pregnant Women

There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy when treated by a trained/certified chiropractor. Dr. Zanelli of Core Wellness Chiropractic has received specialized training to work with pregnant women and offers special equipment to accommodate them.

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is critical to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. Tense muscles and ligaments in the low back and pelvis can lead to uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment, and tightening and torsion of pelvic muscles and ligaments. This can prevent the baby from assuming the best position for birth.

The Webster Technique provides a safe and comfortable way to address these concerns and lower the risk of a difficult birth for both mother and baby. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified chiropractic adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and/or sacroiliac joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.

Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

Pregnancy chiropractors attempt to correct the biomechanical causes of intrauterine constraint. At no time does a chiropractor attempt to reposition a fetus.

How does the Webster Technique Work?

The Webster technique works by balancing pelvic muscles and ligaments to reduce torsion in the uterus, helping to facilitate a smoother and easier delivery.

Greater comfort can lead to a healthier and happier pregnancy, as well as a comfortable delivery for both mom and baby!

“My baby was in breech position until the 37th week and my OB/GYN was discussing the possibility of undergoing ECV to get him in the correct position. I believe that the Webster Technique allowed him to get into head down position and he was ready to go by my due date. Dr. Zanelli not only made my pregnancy so more manageable, she was also able to address issues that had been there for a long time but I thought that they were normal. I am so glad I found her!”

According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, 84% of women who received spinal manipulative therapy while pregnant reported relief of back pain during pregnancy. There was also a significant reduction of back labor during delivery when spinal manipulative therapy was used.

Family Practice Research Journal reported that of the women evaluated for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction (These criteria include absence of lumbar spine and hip pathology, pain in the sacral region, asymmetrical movement of the posterior superior iliac spines upon forward flexion, a positive pelvic compression test and asymmetry of the anterior superior iliac spines.) 91% who were adjusted experienced relief of pain and no longer exhibited signs of sacroiliac subluxation.
