CHIROPRACTIC AND PREGNANCY
Freeman Chiropractic is certified in the Webster Technique! This technique is a specific sacral adjustment to help facilitate the mother's pelvic alignment and nervous system function. This in turn balances the pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus and offers a greater potential for optimal fetal positioning. Dr. Joseph is fully certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in this technique and is the only practicing doctor in a 25 mile radius of Tuscaloosa with this certification. You can learn more about this technique by visiting the ICPA website. We are also an active member of the American Pregnancy Organization.
Not only is it safe to visit a chiropractor during your pregnancy, it is also highly beneficial for both the expecting mother and baby. Lots of changes to the body take place during pregnancy which can change the posture and center of gravity causing more force through the joints. As the baby grows, muscles and ligaments can increase in tightness causing pain. Being under chiropractic care while going through pregnancy is a great way to relieve these problems that you may experience. Chiropractic is very important with maintaining pelvic balance that helps ease the birthing process. Dr. Joseph and Dr. Rachel have quite a few pregnant women they have been helping through their pregnancy and even take care of the babies when they are born. These are some of the doctors favorite patients!
