Pregnancy Chiropractor in Vancouver
Pregnancy & Prenatal Care
At Dr. Kim’s Chiropractic office, we understand that the health of a pregnant woman is important because it affects both the mom and the child. Properly functioning nervous system and aligned spine is crucial to the well- being and health of the mom throughout the pregnancy but also to the developing baby. Prenatal chiropractic care helps to support both the physiological and structural changes that a woman’s body experiences during her pregnancy.
All the changes that happen in a woman’s body during pregnancy
are necessary but these changes can accentuate stress onto their spinal system and can
result in pain and discomfort. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy extend
beyond helping with common back and hip pain.
Webster’s technique is a chiropractic technique that is developed by Larry Webster, D.C. This technique is designed to release stress and subluxation on the sacrum and pelvis, reducing tension in surrounding ligaments, including round ligaments that support the uterus itself. Sacral and pelvic subluxation may cause ligaments and muscles to tighten, stressing the uterus, and thus, not allowing the baby to have enough room within the womb.
