Pregnancy Chiropractic in Columbus

The Joy of a Healthy Pregnancy

Besides adjusting babies, adjusting pregnant women is the second easiest group of people to care for. Very light pressure and special tables designed for pregnant women are what makes it so easy.

It’s been our experience that women who are adjusted regularly during their pregnancies have a far greater chance of enjoying their pregnancy and experience a more satisfying birth of their baby. Many of their symptoms clear up and pregnancy becomes more enjoyable.

We recommend starting care as soon as you know you are pregnant. The last 20 weeks of the pregnancy are particularly important, as the joints and ligaments start to become more relaxed in preparation for the upcoming birth. If there are underlying problems that did not show up before, they usually do now with the extra demands on your body.

Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby

Safe, effective chiropractic care for mom will positively affect the baby as well. By correcting any problems with the spine, pelvis and nervous system of the mother, pregnancy will have less potential for complications. The baby will be less constrained and be able to move much better. Chiropractic care during pregnancy allows your body to nurture and deliver a child better giving your baby a head start to life.

Our Special Touch with The Webster Technique

We provide our pregnant moms with a specialized adjustment method called the Webster Technique. This research-based technique involves a specific chiropractic analysis of the pelvis, with emphasis on the positioning of the tailbone and its associated joints. It is all about improving mom in order to create a great environment for the baby.

This popular method helps mothers to experience the birth they’re hoping to have. We feature specialized adjusting tables that allow mom to comfortably lie on her stomach while being adjusted and receiving care. During the adjustment itself, our goal is to gently and safely correct any spinal or pelvic imbalance, while strengthening and balancing muscles.
