If you are like most women, you have a lot of questions and concerns about the safety of any health care procedure/treatment that you many receive care during pregnancy. Chiropractic is not only safe but it is highly beneficial to both mom and baby.
Women who receive chiropractic care report easier and faster deliveries Also, reports and personal clinical experience indicate that the need for medical intervention during labor greatly decreases in women who have pre-natal chiropractic care. Dr. Denny is also trained in the Webster Technique.
Chiropractic care can also help after childbirth. In the eight weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten up again. Ideally, joint problems brought on during pregnancy from improper lifting or reaching
should be treated before the ligaments return to their pre-pregnancy state-to prevent muscle tension, headaches, rib discomfort, and shoulder problems.
