Chiropractic for Pregnancy
Many parents seek chiropractic care for their children because they hear it helps with ear infections, colic, constipation, spitting up, improper latch, plagiocephaly (flat spots of cranium), growing pains, allergies, sinus issues, asthma, headaches, low immunity and many other ailments.
The reason why there is such a long list of conditions chiropractic has been shown to help is that interference in the nervous system can present as many different symptoms.

Women undergo numerous physical, chemical, and emotional changes during pregnancy. Chiropractic helps the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system adapt more easily to these changes and eases many of the symptoms associated with pregnancy. This is also the best start for the new life growing inside her. The better mom's body functions and communicates, the better the fetus's needs will be met inuero.
Biomechanics of the pelvis are also very important. When the pelvis is biomechanically sound, birth is easier on both mother and baby. Improper biomechanics of the pelvis can decrease room in the pelvis keeping baby from getting into a proper birthing position. Webster Technique specifically addresses these imbalances in hopes of having a gentler delivery with as few interventions as possible.
