Pregnancy

As a pregnancy develops, stress is increasingly placed on the body, causing incredible discomfort for some women. A woman’s center of gravity immediately begins to shift forward during pregnancy. Although a woman’s posterior section of the pelvis has the capacity and depth enabling her to carry a baby, the displaced weight still increases stress on her joints. As the baby gets bigger, a woman’s weight continues to project forward, curving more her lower back and placing extra stress on the spinal discs.
Towards the end of the pregnancy, the sciatic nerve may be irritated when the baby’s head begins pressing down on a woman’s back, legs, and buttocks.
How Chiropractic Can Help Pregnancy
Before pregnancy, a visit to the chiropractor can detect any imbalances in the pelvis or elsewhere that may contribute to pregnancy discomfort. During pregnancy, chiropractic care can control symptoms of nausea, relieve back, neck or joint pain and even prevent a potential cesarean delivery. Research has also found that chiropractic adjustments can provide relief from low-back pain, muscle tensions, headaches and shoulder problems in pregnant women.
During birth, chiropractors can help assure optimum biomechanics in the hips and spine- reducing labor complications. Adjusting your body during pregnancy will avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen, overall reduction of undue stress to the uterus and to the supporting ligaments. Establishing pelvic balance has been shown to allow the best positioning for the fetus, therefore easing the delivery process.
Even after childbirth, in the weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy can begin to tighten up again with the help of chiropractic care.

Pregnancy Testimonials

Johnson, Vanessa"My life has completely changed because of Dr. Jason. After one year of treatment I just became pregnant after 13 years of trying. Treatment has helped my mobility, decreased my pain, and allowed me to conceive. This has to be by far the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

" I’ve been seeing Dr. Steinle for over 3 years.  My husband and I have been having a little trouble getting pregnant.  We finally got pregnant.  I’ve had some pain throughout the pregnancy on and off.  I had some horrible pain for about three weeks.  I think the sciatic nerve.   

I came in with Dr. Steinle every week, and it’s 100% better.   So, I don’t know how I’d have gotten this far without him.  It’s been amazing.  And now that we have 5 days left, and I’ll be delivering.  I can’ imagine having to deliver in that kind of pain, with the added pain of delivery.  But now, I’m feeling so much better and ready to go.  And we’re just hoping for a happy, healthy delivery.
