Many pregnant women experience back pain, sciatic nerve pain and hip discomfort during pregnancy. This is due to the rapid growth of the baby and changes to the normal spinal curves in the mother.
Dr. Zock evaluates the changes to your body during pregnancy and offers chiropractic care throughout. Adjustments will relieve and often prevent these common discomforts. Specific spinal corrective adjustments and soft tissue release will reduce the stress to your spine and pelvis.
The Webster Technique
Dr. Zock is certified in Webster Technique, designed to improve pelvic biomechanics during pregnancy. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. Through proper alignment neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
As a result of this process, the balanced state in the pelvis has been shown to allow for optimal positioning of your baby. The technique has become know as the Webster Technique.
During the first part of the the pregnancy, it is often normal for a baby to present breech until the third trimester. In fact, most birth practitioners are not concerned with breech presentations until the expand mom is more than 37 weeks into the pregnancy.
Today, in the United States, approximately 4% of all pregnancies will result in a breech birth.
