Treatment for Pregnancy
Chiropractic care has been shown to provide relief to pregnant women who are dealing with musculoskeletal complaints. The hormonal, physical and emotional changes associated with pregnancy can cause the woman’s body to be more vulnerable to aches and pains.
Chiropractic manipulation has proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women. The adjustment involves a gentle impulse applied to the pelvis. This allows for optimal function of the pelvis and sacrum, which make up the environment in which the baby will grow. Our doctors are trained in the Webster Technique, specifically created to treat prenatal patients.
Soft Tissue/Manual Therapy
Various soft tissue therapies are utilized on pregnant women. The techniques we use are meant to restore the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves to their normal function in order to decrease pain in the pelvis. Manual and soft tissue therapies are also beneficial when addressing other structures of the body that are affected by the increased load placed on a woman’s body.
Therapeutic Exercise and rehabilitation
It is very important that women remain active throughout pregnancy. Traditional research suggested that women do not start a new activity during pregnancy, but for those who may have had a more sedentary lifestyle prior to conception, it is now evident that implementing a movement plan is vital to preparing the body for the feat of labor and delivery. This is one of the greatest athletic achievements of a woman’s life and training is crucial. Our doctors at Ashburn Natural Wellness are dedicated to preparing our mamas for this big day.
While modern medicine is necessary in the care of pregnant women, it can be challenging to navigate all of the information that is available to us. Dr. Tiffanie and Dr. Taylor are committed to providing you with comprehensive care that includes hands-on treatment as well as assisting you in preparing yourself for this great journey.
