Chiropractic Treatment During Pregnancy in Alexandria, VA
Pregnancy is a special time, but it also brings about rapid physical, emotional, and chemical changes, placing a significant amount of strain on a woman’s body. Chiropractic care offers much-needed support as you transition into motherhood and prepare for childbirth.
Common pregnancy symptoms that can benefit from chiropractic care include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Abdominal pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Digestive upset
- Swollen feet and ankles
- Tight and sore muscles
Our chiropractors use specialized techniques with our pregnant patients to gently readjust the spine, soothing the aches and pains commonly experienced by expectant mothers. Two of the techniques we frequently use are Webster’s technique and Logan’s technique.
Webster’s technique balances and relaxes the round ligaments and aligns the lumbo-pelvic region, resulting in a more comfortable pregnancy and birth experience.
Logan’s technique aligns the body and balances the nervous system, shifting blood and nerve flow from the hands and feet to your core, where your baby is developing.
In addition to using these targeted chiropractic techniques, we can coach you and your significant other on at-home exercises, positions, and stretches to help you stay strong and balanced throughout your pregnancy.
