Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is often overlooked during pregnancy. However, due to the back pain that is usually associated with the stress of pregnancy, chiropractic can actually be very beneficial. A healthy pregnancy almost always comes with some degree of discomfort, but our experienced chiropractic team can ensure you have the most healthy pregnancy possible.
Prenatal Chiropractic in Katy
Doctor Schmidt is certified in the Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces nerve system stress, balances pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments and optimizes the mother's pelvic function in pregnancy and birth.
To prepare for pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes many physiological changes. Amongst these is a significant change in the balance of her body as a result of her normal weight gain. The issue arises from the placement of this additional weight. Since the baby resides in the uterus, this weight adds stress to the pelvic region of her body. As the pregnancy progresses and the baby develops, additional weight is placed in the area. Often this results in a substantial amount of pressure and a slight curvature of the back to compensate. Over a 9-month term, this imbalance can result in significant back pain.
Research shows that up to 7 out of 10 women deal with significant back pain during their pregnancy. This discomfort is often amplified during the third trimester due to the baby reaching its’ peak weight in the womb. Moreover, this additional weight can result in more symptoms than just back pain. Everything from cramping to digestive issues can accompany a difficult pregnancy.
