Chiropractic for Pregnancy?
At Compassion Chiropractic Office, we specialize in gentle and precise chiropractic care during pregnancy in Brooklyn. Our goal is to make the pregnancy process as enjoyable as possible for mom, where she can be fully charged with energy, sleep, productivity, and enjoy pleasant leisure activities, while possibly avoiding any of the common side effects such as lower back and hip pains, fatigue and others commonly associated with pregnancy.
Studies have shown that, after caring for thousands of pregnant moms, we know that neurologically-based chiropractic care can reduce both labor time and pain. Our goal is to empower our moms-to-be through extensive quality and supportive care and to be a resource for all-natural birthing and family health needs.
Helping with Menstrual Cycle and Fertility in Brooklyn
If you have been diagnosed with infertility or if you’re simply hoping to improve your chances of conceiving, chiropractic care is a great option when you need help with fertility. A healthy spine and nervous system are absolutely vital in order to provide healthy nerves to the reproductive system. When you receive consistent chiropractic adjustments from Dr.Li, your menstrual cycles will be more likely to be regulated, leading to an increased chance of fertility.
Care During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a joyful time for a new life, but it can also be very challenging. As the baby grows, a mother's center of gravity shifts to the front of her pelvis, resulting in added stress and discomfort in the low back and various parts of the body. Any misalignment of the pelvis can create torsion in the uterus, leading to in-utero constraint, which prevents the baby from moving freely.
If the baby can’t get in the ideal position, labor will be more difficult and less likely to result in a natural delivery. It is common for women in New York City to regularly visit a chiropractic office for lower back pain and other related issues, such as insomnia, leg cramps, and constipation. Our adjustments to your spine will improve the nerve function connected to different areas of your body.
Keeping your spine aligned will ensure your entire body is balanced and functioning properly, allowing for more room for your developing baby to grow. A properly aligned pelvis also helps your body prepare for childbirth, and can even reduce the pain and time in labor.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Relieve back pain and neck pain
- Relieve physical, emotional and mental stress
- Shorter labor and safer delivery
- Reduce the risk of a breech presentation
- Improve sleep quality
After you give birth, you’re likely to be exhausted, sore, and incredibly emotional. While time will help each of those to some extent, receiving chiropractic care after you give birth will help even more. The birthing process can be very intense, and the body often needs a little additional help in healing afterward. Chiropractic care invigorates your body’s natural healing abilities and helps you experience body restoration, revived energy levels, and hormonal/emotional regulation.
Chiropractic Care for Newborns
While the birthing process is natural and normal, it can still be difficult for the baby. Baby’s heads are often twisted or pulled during delivery, leading to spinal misalignments that can result in colic, sleep problems, feeding problems, and more if not corrected immediately. When a newborn’s spine is not cared for properly, they can experience the issues above within days, weeks, or months. But they can also experience balance problems, acid reflux, and behavioral problems later in life as well.
Larry Webster, D.C. developed a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment, which enables chiropractors to establish balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and reduce undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported an 82% success rate of babies turning vertex (proper birthing position) when doctors of chiropractic used the Webster Technique.
Dr. Li is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and has completed numerous practices in specialized pediatric training. He is also certified in Webster’s Technique, and it is a technique that precisely crafted for the needs of pregnant women. It focuses on the proper alignment of the pelvis, which optimizes the room for the developing fetus and promotes an easier birth.
Safety and Effectiveness
We love having the opportunity to offer chiropractic care for pregnant moms and newborns! At Compassion Chiropractic, we offer a very gentle and precise treatment for moms and newborns that is custom-tailored to their age and body frame. We will perform a thorough spinal examination and neurological assessment prior to your first chiropractic corrective adjustment, so the doctor knows exactly what is best for you and your loved ones.
We believe healthy moms deliver healthy babies, and healthy babies become healthy adults. In order to have great delivery, mothers need to be feeling and functioning at their best. This is why pregnant moms must have a well functioning nervous system.
