When pregnant, a woman’s body will undergo many unique and different changes to accommodate a growing baby. As the size of the baby increases, the mother’s center of gravity will shift to the front of her pelvis. This shift can result in significant discomfort and stress to the mother’s various joints associated with the pelvis, such as the pubic symphysis and sacroiliac joint. This shift can also cause severe lower back pain. A Palatine Webster chiropractic specialist can help alleviate an expecting mother’s pain and discomfort during pregnancy, safely and effectively, by providing quality chiropractic care.
Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate the aches and pains expecting mothers often experience throughout their pregnancy. Often, women overlook chiropractic care during their pregnancy, but in fact, it’s a very important part of prenatal care. Chiropractic techniques consist of gentle adjustments that can provide pain relief during a woman’s entire pregnancy. Treatment can restore pelvic balance, reduce or eliminate back pain, and has a high success rate among women who have tried chiropractic care during pregnancy.
If you’re interested in chiropractic care for pregnancy-related aches and pains, speak with your medical doctor for approval first. While chiropractic pregnancy care is gentle and safe, it may not be suitable for women with a history of high-risk pregnancies.
At Foundations Spine and Well-Necessities, we provide comprehensive, one-on-one care to expecting mothers suffering from acute pain, including sacroiliac joint pain, back pain, foot pain, hip pain, round ligament pain, and other aches and pains.
Many women also suffer from nerve pain during pregnancy. The nerves that travel to other parts of the body originate in the spine. Once the spine is compressed, this bundle of nerves can become irritated, which can cause the pain to radiate to other parts of the body. A common condition brought on by pregnancy, sciatica, involves nerve pain that radiates from the back to the buttocks and can travel down the legs.
At Foundations Spine and Well-Necessities, our chiropractors have undergone special training to provide effective and safe care during pregnancy. Our chiropractic pregnancy care will address your pain and discomfort and prepare your body for childbirth to encourage the baby to move into the perfect position for birth.
These effective treatments involve a specialized adjustment method known as the Webster technique. This chiropractic treatment will improve your comfort during pregnancy and can eliminate or reduce the need to use pain medication. It can also reduce labor time, offering benefits for baby and mom.

Chiropractic treatment during pregnancy can provide effective pain relief that is safe for both the mother and growing baby, without the need for pain medication, and numerous benefits.
Many patients who have received chiropractic treatment throughout their pregnancy have reported a healthy birth and easier labor. Follow-up treatments are also available and can assist in realigning the body after delivery, to speed up the transition to a healthier post-pregnancy body. Addressing pain and discomfort after delivery is an important part of postpartum care.
This technique has become a very familiar term in the birth and pregnancy conversation. This treatment provides a safer, more comfortable, and easier birth. The goal of treatment is to minimize the effects of sacroiliac joint dysfunction and sacral subluxation. Sacral subluxation makes labor more difficult for the mother, due to pelvic contraction, insufficient uterine function, and baby mal-presentation. The correction of sacral subluxation can have a huge positive impact on all the causes of dystocia.
A chiropractor doesn’t physically turn a breech baby but will utilize the Webster technique to help facilitate the infant’s ability to turn into the proper position for birth by correcting the misalignment of hips, in addition to the sacrum that’s rotated, putting torsion on the uterus.
When the hips and sacrum are placed in the proper position, eliminating the torsion placed on the uterus, it will create more space for the infant to turn naturally.
During this exciting time in your life, you deserve to feel happy, comfortable, and pain-free.
