Many women seek chiropractic care for the aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Low back pain, hip pain and sciatica are just a few of the common complaints pregnant women experience through their pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can help with these complaints as well as others. Women under regular chiropractic care have also been shown to have smoother pregnancies and better deliveries with faster deliveries and fewer complications.
During pregnancy, your body is constantly changing. As your baby grows within you, he/she puts more stress on your body. This can lead to misalignments in your low back, sacrum and pelvis. These are known as subluxations. Subluxations in this area can lead to the common complaints of low back pain, hip pain and sciatica. However, they can also have a negative impact on your pregnancy, labor and delivery. If you have a subluxation of your sacrum or pelvis, this can impair your baby’s ability to get into the proper position in preparation for birth because the pelvis is unable to expand properly and allow the necessary movement.
At Trinity Chiropractic, we offer gentle and specific neurologically based chiropractic care to help you experience your best pregnancy possible. Dr. David Iszler is Advanced Proficiency Certified in the newest technique in chiropractic, Torque Release Technique (TRT). This technique utilized the only FDA-approved chiropractic instrument for adjusting spinal misalignments. In addition to TRT, Dr. Iszler is certified in the Webster Technique. This chiropractic technique has been specifically designed to help expecting moms with their unique issues. The Webster technique helps to restore balance to the sacrum and pelvis, allowing more room for your baby in preparation for birth. It also relieves nerve irritation to the uterus through correction of subluxations in the lower spine and sacrum.
When you meet with Dr. Iszler, he will perform thorough history and chiropractic examination. When he goes over his findings, he will discuss with you in detail what is causing your pain and what needs to be done. If you are not experiencing pain and just want to have the best pregnancy possible, he will also go over with you what your needs are and how to accomplish your goals. Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy and what issues you may be experiencing, Dr. Iszler will come up with an individualized plan for your circumstances. In addition to the chiropractic adjustments, your care will likely include exercises to help improve mobility in your low back and pelvis as well as strengthening the supporting muscles.
Childbirth is a beautiful and wonderful event. However, it is very traumatic to your body. As the pelvis shifts to allow the birth canal to expand, it may not go back to the proper position on its own. For this reason, it is important to have your spine and pelvis evaluated as soon as possible after delivery. If it is determined that chiropractic care is necessary to realign these structures, the sooner this is addressed, the better your long-term results will be. At Trinity Chiropractic we do not just address your immediate pain, we work with you on a long-term solution so you can get back to doing the things you love to do.
If you are pregnant and are experiencing back pain, hip pain or sciatica, or if you just want to experience the best pregnancy possible, give us a call today and we can get you started on your journey to better health.
