Not only can it help with common discomforts associated with pregnancy, such as back pain and sciatica, but regular adjustments may also provide numerous other benefits.

Specialized Care

Chiropractors have extensive training in working with pregnant women and are well-equipped to address the unique needs of expectant moms. Dr. Liz has received advanced training through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) and is certified in the Webster Technique.

The Webster Technique focuses on specific areas of the woman’s body, the pelvis, hips, sacrum, etc., to remove any misalignments, and restore proper function. Discomfort is relieved, so the mom-to-be is more comfortable.

The goal of this technique is to ensure the pelvis is optimally aligned, and that it keeps the alignment. So, as the baby continues to grow, and the woman’s body weight increases, she can adapt and prevent any type of injury.

At Mojica Chiropractic Care, every woman is evaluated before creating the care plan. Does she exercise regularly, or stand for long periods without a break, or sit at a desk for hours? Maintaining movement and alignment is more difficult in some instances than others. The frequency of visits depends on what the woman’s body needs.

Dr. Liz continues to stay abreast of advances in the field and other related areas through the ICPA. Going for recertification every two years helps her stay up-to-date on the newest skills and innovations to provide her patients with the best possible care.
The ICPA website is a great resource to find chiropractors who have trained with them, and are certified in Webster. Regardless of where you live, it’s possible to find skilled doctors.

While most people seek chiropractic care because of pain, the goal is to be under wellness care before to prevent future injury and pain. Knowing how your body works is important in deciding on the right chiropractor. Having a holistic mindset uses a total body approach to prevent issues, and to manage the stress the mom’s body experiences at this time.

Benefits of Pregnancy Care

The first benefit most people mention is an easier and faster labor and delivery. When the pelvis and other structures are in alignment, contractions are more in tune, the joints open evenly, and the baby can move from in utero to this world with less interventions, making it a better experience for them both.

Other benefits may include

  • Improved Posture: the mom’s center of gravity shifts due to the growing baby bump, and may lead to back pain and other issues. Regular chiropractic care may improve posture and reduce the strain of improper alignment on your body.
  • Reduced Pain: painful discomforts, including lower back pain, hip discomfort, sciatica, and headaches, are common during pregnancy. Adjustments realign the spine, relieving pressure on the joints and muscles.
  • Better Sleep: poor sleep is a problem for many, leading to fatigue, stress, and other complications. By addressing any misalignments, we remove potential blocks to a restful night’s sleep.
  • A Healthier Pregnancy: chiropractic care helps ensure a healthier pregnancy for both you and your baby by improving circulation, relieving pressure on the uterus, and promoting overall well-being.

Incorporating chiropractic care into your prenatal routine improves overall health and comfort during your pregnancy.
