Pregnancy brings many new changes to your body which can disrupt your nervous system and throw off your physical and chemical equilibrium. Chemical changes and hormonal fluctuations can cause nausea, heartburn, indigestion, migraines, mood swings, fatigue and more. Physical changes to accommodate your growing child include muscles strains, stretched ligaments and tissues, and irritated nerves that can result in backache, pelvic pain, joint stiffness, and sciatica. In addition, off-balanced forward posture during pregnancy can shift your hips and spine out of alignment.
Dr. Jackie’s gentle and natural chiropractic prenatal care helps to prevent and alleviate these symptoms, without the use of medications, for a safer, healthier and more active pregnancy. Dr. Jackie is certified in Webster Technique, a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment technique for pregnant women. The goal of the adjustment is to improve your pelvic alignment and relieve any tension in the ligaments surrounding the pelvis.
Maintaining optimal spinal health during pregnancy can greatly reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort, improve mobility and flexibility, and even shorten your labor, delivery and recovery time.
