Why would a mother need chiropractic care during pregnancy? The nervous system is controlling and coordinating the health of the mother, and at the same time, growing and developing her baby. There is a lot of stress on the mother throughout pregnancy and birth, and it is paramount that you have a way to better adapt to that stress. Chiropractic adjustments not only remove harmful stress on the nervous system and improve adaptability, but they also ensure that your biomechanics are not compromised. Chiropractic adjustments help ensure your baby develops properly and stays healthy as well as helps with an easier birth. Back pain later in pregnancy is common and easily controlled with chiropractic. Dr. Drake is certified in the Webster’s Techniques which allows for proper pelvis alignment and baby positioning.
