During pregnancy there are many mechanical and hormonal changes that occur throughout the body, altering normal posture and biomechanics of the spine. The average healthy weight gain is about 30 lbs, adding a significant frontal load to the spine. As the baby grows and the uterus expands it stretches the abdominal muscles and the ligaments attached to the uterus, losing our ability to support our spine and contributes to uterine constraint. During the third trimester the levels of the hormone relax in increase allowing your joints to loosen to accommodate the growing baby, this further contributes to pelvic instability and altered posture. All of these changes result in 50% of pregnant women experiencing back pain or severe discomfort impacting their activities of daily living.

Chiropractors are uniquely trained to adjust you during pregnancy. Studies show that chiropractic care can help decrease pain in pregnancy and labour. Chiropractors provide safe, effective and drug free conservative care to relieve pain and improve function during pregnancy, birth and after birth.

At Dr. Erin Madonia Family Chiropractic our chiropractors are trained in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic pelvic analysis and adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of pelvic misalignment and joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated, decreasing pain in pregnancy and labour and ensuring proper positioning of the baby for birth.
