At Vitality Chiropractic, we believe all pregnant women should have access to chiropractic care and resources for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Pregnant mothers receiving chiropractic care experience an optimum pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery. We create a safe haven and supportive environment where expecting mothers are listened to and understood. Dr. Brew has specialized training, certification and experience assisting pregnant women during their unique health journey.
Dr. Brew’s focused training and expertise in The Webster Technique is utilized to adjust our pregnant patients to help promote the health and well-being of both the mom and the baby contributing to an easier and more comfortable pregnancy. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation (misalignment)/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated. Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
Pregnant mothers receiving chiropractic care can experience…
Decrease in lower back and pelvic pain

Less need for pain medication

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise as a critical part of their health journey.
