Chiropractic and Pregnancy in Edwardsville & Litchfield

During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through immense changes both inside and out. As your baby continues to grow, the stresses and pain that a pregnancy brings becomes more and more apparent.

At Family Health and Wellness Chiropractic, Dr. Kari understands what you’re going through and uses gentle chiropractic adjustments to bring relief for both yourself and the baby. Chiropractic care during pregnancy isn’t only safe, but effective in helping the mother to prepare for a healthy delivery.


Gentle Techniques for Mom and Baby

Relieving pain while pregnant isn’t as easy as it was beforehand as taking a pill isn’t always an
option. At Family Health and Wellness Chiropractic, we bring relief through a proven adjustment therapy known as the Webster technique in which Dr. Kari is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).An appointment for pregnant
women begins with a careful examination to make sure the adjustment is an appropriate therapy first and foremost. If Dr. Kari recommends treatment, the gentle Webster technique will be applied. Among other health improvements, your pelvis will reach an improved alignment, allowing the baby optimal room for growth.Many women also seek out chiropractic care after the birth of their child. This type of care helps to get the body back on track, allowing nerves to flow openly and freeing up misalignments that may have accumulated during pregnancy or the birthing process.

Chiropractic adjustments for pregnant women may help achieve the following, among others:

• Smoother birthing process                • Decreased back pain
• Improved sleep                                         • Increased comfort
