Chiropractic and Pregnancy
Dr. Clark has a passion for treating expecting mothers. He treats a large number of pregnant women, from the 1st trimester all the way to delivery. He also provides excellent postpartum care for both moms and infants.
During the course of pregnancy, expecting mothers will experience a number of body changes. With weight gain in the belly, the pelvis tips forward increasing pressure on lumbar spine and hips. Many women will experience low back pain during pregnancy and some will suffer sciatica, which is radiating pain down the back of one or both legs. Chiropractic helps correct posture distortion which relieves low back pain and symptoms of sciatica. The chiropractic adjustments keep an expecting mother’s spine moving freely and her nervous system free of interference so her body can focus on developing a mature, healthy infant.
In the case of breech pregnancy, Dr. Clark is experienced in the Webster Breech-Turning Technique. This is a non-invasive, gentle technique for turning a baby and reducing tension and pain in the mother simultaneously. Dr. Clark has had great results using this technique.
