Back pain during pregnancy

Back pain during pregnancy

One of the most common complaints during pregnancy is back pain. I often hear pregnant women say “my back hurts, but I guess that just comes with the territory, right?” Wrong. It doesn’t have to be that way. Studies have shown that around 85% of pregnant women experience back pain, but less than half of those seek care or treatment. There could be many reasons why, but it is clear to me that most simply don’t know that there is treatment available. In my professional experience women who seek chiropractic care to manage low back pain and other complaints are happier with their pregnancy, better understand the changes occuring in the body, and feel more in control of what is happening with their body.

Webster Technique

Webster Technique

Dr. Reynolds has been certified to practice the Webster Technique.  This technique is specifically designed for the treatment of pregnant women.  It has been proven safe and is gentle.  The Webster technique is based upon removing tension and torsion from within the pelvis including its bony structures, ligaments, and muscles thereby reducing strain on the fetus and providing the expecting mother relief from low back and pelvic pain during pregnancy. Although Webster technique does not claim to treat breech births it has been shown to be approximately 85% successful in helping to prevent breech birth presentations by reducing intrauterine constraint. This is accomplished by correcting sacral misalignment and promoting proper biomechnics within the pelvis.  When this is accomplished the ligaments, muscles, and bony structures are allowed to function without undue tension thereby allowing for proper fetal movement.  It has also been helpful in reducing other complications during labor and delivery and helping to make that process go more smoothly and naturally. In addition, Dr. Reynolds is proficient in the use of other various techniques to provide all necessary therapies...
