Follow along with the video below to increase your prenatal mobility.
Mobility is a key requirement for a healthy life… pregnancy is no different. Increasing prenatal mobility will help:
- Strengthen your pelvic floor
- Reduce areas of pain, and
- Help better align your spine and pelvis for birth
These dynamic movements are specific prenatal modifications. Perform these daily movements with the other Move By Design Mobility exercises.
Use these movements throughout labour. They can help increase comfort and to give baby the opportunity to move and engage further for delivery.
This is only one important part of our strategy to enhance your prenatal experience.
Chiropractic care is often the missing ingredient to an amazing pregnancy.
WHY WOULD I CONSIDER CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING MY PREGNANCY?
We always start with a thorough consultation and Bio-Structural Examination to determine if we can help.
It is safe to perform the Bio-Structural Examination as well as receive chiropractic care during your pregnancy.
Prenatal chiropractic helps to support the structural and soft tissue changes a woman’s body experiences during pregnancy.
As a result of addressing spinal shifts, expecting mothers who undergo prenatal chiropractic care at The Powerhouse report a decrease in the “usual” pregnancy symptoms such as low back pain and muscle fatigue.
Proper spinal alignment also ensures that the expecting mother’s pelvis is properly aligned for birth.
All of our doctors are certified to use the Webster Technique. This is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and correction, reducing the effects of subluxation and/or sacraliliac (SI) joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved.
