Congratulations on your pregnancy! Compass Chiropractic and Wellness has a saying, “your pregnancy should be enjoyable and as pain free as possible”. With that being our main mindset, we do all that is in our power, through special adjustments, exercises, and home recommendations to ensure that your pregnancy will not only be as pain-free as possible, but your labor may be shorter, and the pain levels significantly decreased.
Dr. Emel uses a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment called the Webster technique, which reduces interference to the nervous system and balances the pelvic muscles and ligaments. This improves function in the mother’s pelvis and may contribute to easier labors and delivery. We believe the body needs to be as balanced as possible through alignment of the pelvis, sacrum and even round ligaments. With this mindset, a majority of patients, once under care do not experience sciatica, and first time moms have on average 6-10 hour labors from start to finish.
Many mothers and practitioners have reported that after this adjustment, the baby settled into a more optimal position for birth. The ICPA (who certifies doctors in this technique) is exploring the clinical data from hundreds of cases in its NIH recognized Practiced Based Research Network. As an ICPA member, Dr. Emel is kept up to date all publications and current research to apply in her practice.
Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy is a vital ingredient to a healthier pregnancy and birth. Call us for a complimentary consultation and we can assess your individual needs during this special time of your life.
