Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent common discomforts experienced during pregnancy. As the abdomen grows the strain on the body increases, creating imbalances. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe, gentle and extremely effective. Dr. Flynn uses specially designed tables to accomodate for the growing abdomen. Reducing the strain on a woman's pelvis and low back makes for a much more comfortable pregnancy and easier delivery.
Dr. Flynn is certified in the Webster Technique . Sacral misalignment causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus which prevents the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth. The Webster Technique is defined as a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nerve system and facilitates biomechanical balance in pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments. This has been shown to reduce the effects of intrauterine constraint, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth
It is strongly recommended by the ICPA instructors of this technique that this specific analysis and adjustment of the sacrum be used throughout pregnancy, to detect imbalance and optimize pelvic biomechanics in preparation for safer, easier births. Because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.
