Pregnancy Chiropractic
in Port Moody

The first question everyone asks about chiropractic during pregnancy is “How safe is it?”

We’re happy to let you know that not only is it incredibly safe, but effective, gentle, and best of all-completely natural.

Pregnancy adjustments are different from general adjustments. Dr. Barone is trained in the Webster Technique, developed especially to care for pregnant women. Webster follows a specific sequence of moves during adjustment. The procedure is also gentler than other adjustments.

What is Pregnancy Chiropractic?

Why should a pregnant woman see a chiropractor? The bigger risk is not to be checked.

The strain on the mom’s joints and muscles, balance issues and pressure from an enlarged abdomen are substantial. As the pregnancy progresses, hormonal changes loosen the ligaments that support the pelvic region. If her body is thrown off balance, a vertebral shift can occur causing pain.

These same hormones make it easier and gentler to do the adjustment. Since there are few, if any safe medications to ease her discomfort, chiropractic is an ideal solution. Pain and discomfort, especially in the third trimester, are common. Making sure the mom-to-be is comfortable and pain-free is good for her and the baby.

What to Expect

As with any practice member, Dr. Barone takes the time to get to know you. We will discuss your medical history, including any past pregnancies, and what goals you have for this one. For example, did you have a C-section previously or do you want a natural birth.

Your baby is completely safe; at no time will Dr. Barone touch the child. There is nothing strenuous about the treatment; he will only do what you’re comfortable with. Adjustments are usually done every two weeks unless there are issues that need to be corrected.

Our moms tell us that they are more comfortable during pregnancy when under a chiropractor’s care. Keeping the mom in alignment allows the best possible natural function in the body. This helps mom, and when mom is happy, everybody is happy.

Can It Help Me?

Here are 5 ways pregnancy chiropractic can benefit you:

  • Improves Pelvic Balance – Webster Technique gently addresses pelvic alignment as well as related tension in the ligaments that hold the uterus, bringing balance to the body.
  • Comfortable Pregnancy – Aligning the mom’s joints and spine reduces pain during pregnancy
  • Reduces lower back pain – Correcting the posture of the spine as the baby grows prevents discomfort. Other benefits can be relief from headaches, back, chest and neck pain, sciatica and tight hip muscles.
  • Helps ease stress – Compressed nerves or misaligned vertebrae can cause emotional and physical stress. Adjustments correct the cause of problems and provide relaxing relief.
  • Helps with recovery after birth – Studies show that regular adjustments prior to delivery, help the body to recover faster. Proper alignment stimulates the nervous system helping it stay functional, balanced and healthy.
