With all of the changes occurring during pregnancy your body can become stressed. As your bundle of joy grows the curve in your spine increases, affecting your posture. To allow your baby to be born easily your pelvis joints start to relax and move more freely. These changes your body is experiencing can result in a misaligned pelvis, rib, spin or other joints.

Chiropractic Care & Breeching
Chiropractors perform can perform a technique known as the Webster technique, this technique allows chiropractors to balance your pelvis and significantly reduce stress on your uterus. This technique makes it easier for a breech baby to turn naturally.
The Webster technique has a known success rate of 80% when it comes to turning babies to the vertex position, or head down.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends that all expecting mothers receive regular chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies to help keep their pelvises aligned.
Babies are more likely to get into the right positioning for labor when your pelvis is properly aligned. Properly aligned pelvises lower the risks of complications associated with a breech or posterior baby.
According to a study the National Institute of Health performed, first time mothers who received chiropractic care on a regular basis during pregnancy had 25% shorter labor times. Seasoned mothers who received chiropractic care had 33% shorter labor times.
How is that possible? Misalignments in your pelvis, spine or other joints can interfere with the labor and birth process, making the process take longer.
The chiropractors at Advanced Health Chiropractic and Massage Therapy Pain Relief Center in Idaho Falls have studied perinatal and pediatric care as part of their training curriculum. That, combined with our hands-on, drug free approach, makes us the perfect resource for expecting mothers.
