Chiropractic is a safe and essential part of pregnancy
Dr. Teah helps expecting moms have a more comfortable pregnancy through chiropractic care. Having a balanced pelvis is very important for the mother as well as the baby. Misalignment in the pelvis can be due to dysfunctional joints, ligaments, or muscles. It can occur because of injury, poor posture, or as a result of the normal body changes that occur with pregnancy. Side effects from a misbalanced pelvis may include pain, nerve impingement or irritation, and a less than optimal space for the growing baby.
Dr. Teah is certified in the Webster Technique which uses chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue modalities to balance the pelvis and restore normal nervous system function. This technique has been studied to be effective in pregnant women to reduce pain during pregnancy and reduce difficulties during delivery.
Dr. Webster (founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) sites in some literature that women who began care with breech presenting babies found that after restoring the normal balance of the pelvis and nervous system the babies frequently turned to a more optimal position. These cases are currently being researched.
