Prenatal Care in Rochester
The changes that accompany a woman’s body during pregnancy – both structurally and emotionally – can cause a lot of physical stress resulting in more aches and pains. The physiological changes also occurring can change the pattern of her movement, flexibility, and mechanics.
Hormones released during pregnancy can cause increased flexibility, making the body more vulnerable to overuse and muscle strain. The baby's growth changes the mother's posture and increases stress on the hips, joints, low back, and pelvis.
Chiropractic during pregnancy is proven to be very effective and safe. The adjustment may entail a combination of stretching, massage, muscle release, and gentle adjustments to the back and pelvis. Dr. Tara Flor is trained and certified in the Webster Technique, a protocol specific to adjusting women during pregnancy.
Muscle and ligament release are often accompanied by the adjustment during prenatal chiropractic care. This method often feels similar to a massage, but the technique is specific and subjective to assist in balancing your pelvic alignment.
Together, these types of care can optimize fetal positioning an relieve common prenatal stressors like low back and hip ache, sciatica. ligament pain, SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction), rib pain, and shoulder and wrist pain.
