Chiropractic Treatments During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is filled with a fair share of aches and pains with all the amazing changes happening within the body. Not surprisingly, tremendous pressure is put on the neck, back, legs, and virtually every other part of the body. Chiropractic care while pregnant can assist in alleviating pain and even helping reduce the time of labor and delivery. More importantly, it establishes the long term health of both mother and child.
At Lighthouse Chiropractic, prenatal services have long been a foundation of our practice. Over the years, we have provided our expecting mothers and infants with a wide array of services including:
- Creating maximum amount of room in pelvis for baby to find optimal position (head down)
- Assisting in relieving back, neck, and joint pain
- Helping with pelvic, publc, and glute pain
- Carpal Tunnel symptoms
- In home/in hospital treatment for mothers on bed rest
Our gentle approach to chiropractic care for pregnant women is a pillar of our philosophy. We are certified in the Webster Technique and are members of ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) and work with midwives, doulas, OBGYNs, and more.
"Our son, Kade, was a breech baby and was born via cesarean section this February. Because he had been 'squished up' under my ribs for so long, his neck was becoming more and more stiff. He was fussy, and it was obvious his neck was causing him daily discomfort. Dr. Ed evaluated Kade, and was able to gently begin adjusting him. After the 1st adjustment, Kade was like a different baby! He began sleeping and eating better, and was not fussy anymore. Even our concerned 2 year old liked how Dr. Ed would 'tickle' her baby brother! We continued with regular adjustments, until Kade's neck straightened out.
Kade is now 8 months old and a happy, healthy baby! We still visit Dr. Ed for maintenance care because we have learned of the benefits short AND long term. My husband and I trust Dr. Ed 100% in providing our family with safe and effective care. He is truly personable, we never feel like we are just a 'number' in his practice. Bottom line, Dr. Ed has been absolutely INVALUABLE for our baby boy and our family as a whole!"
"My daughter and I were in a car accident...after the accident I experienced increased difficulty in getting her to nurse more on one side than the other; increased restlessness and discomfort while having a bowel movement.
After care from Dr. Ed we noticed better sleep, better digestion and decreased restlessness during feeds. Dr. Ed also helped alleviate symptoms I suffered from as well."
"At 21 weeks pregnant I started to experience horrible pain in my back, my hips, and my legs. After trying medications and other chiropractic care with no relief, I finally came to Lighthouse. The relief was immediate. Dr. Jocelyn and the Lighthouse team made me feel so at ease, I felt listened to and cared for. Each appointment brought palpable relief, I looked forward to them. Now my baby is happy and healthy at 5 weeks and I can't imagine going anywhere else!"
