Pregnancy Chiropractic in Cincinnati

Pregnant woman getting adjustedThere is no better way to support a growing, developing baby than to ensure the mother is balanced and doing well throughout her pregnancy. Dr. Shaina is a Webster certified chiropractor and has experience working with many expecting mothers.

Why Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

Prenatal chiropractic care is safe and gentle. It’s an outstanding way to help balance the pelvis, and relieves pressure on the spine and nerves, while helping your baby move into the best position for delivery.

As the belly grows, women tend to develop forward head posture and a tilted pelvis, which may cause lower back pain and sciatica. There is also a change in the way they walk, which can irritate the sacroiliac joint. Having a properly functioning nervous system leads to less stress, more energy, and better digestion.

What to Expect

Dr. Shaina recommends women start care as early as possible in their pregnancy. For women with no complaints, she usually schedules visits bi-weekly; weekly, once they enter their third trimester, until birth. Those experiencing issues receive care more frequently.

Dr. Shaina has been known to get down on the floor to demonstrate stretches and exercises to her moms. She was the regional director of BIRTHFIT™, an organization that promotes fitness during pregnancy and after. Dr. Shaina taught prenatal and postpartum fitness, and childbirth education classes also.

In addition, she has also had dynamic neuromuscular stabilization training on women’s health and the pelvic floor. She also instructs patients on proper breathing techniques, like diaphragmatic breathing, to regulate the nervous system.

The Webster Technique

The Webster Technique is a special technique used to analyze a woman’s pelvis to find the sacral subluxation and correct it. Having a sacral subluxation may lead to a difficult labor for the mother, by causing inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and poor positioning of the baby. By correcting the sacral subluxation with the Webster Technique, it can help alleviate these issues and ease a potentially difficult birth.

Our office also has special tables with a hole to accommodate Mom’s growing belly, and pregnancy pillows for more comfort.
