Pregnancy Chiropractic in Owasso

Pregnancy adjustment by Dr. KirkChiropractic care is a safe and natural solution to the aches and pains that often come with pregnancy. It not only helps pregnant women feel more comfortable while pregnant, but it also encourages smoother labors and deliveries.

Here at Kirk Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we specialize in prenatal chiropractic care. Dr. Kirk is certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to provide expectant mothers – and in turn, their unborn babies – with the specific, gentle care they need to thrive.

The Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

While pregnant, the female body undergoes rapid changes. The increased weight on the front side of the body leads to changes in balance that cause compensation in other areas of the body. This not only causes low back pain, but it lends itself to a variety of others symptoms, including mid-back pain, headaches, and fatigue.

Chiropractic adjustments can be used to realign and rebalance the body, alleviating immediate discomfort and encouraging better health during pregnancy. It also promotes pelvic alignment, which allows the birth canal to open up and let the baby through with ease.

Throughout pregnancy, your body is shifting and your pelvis is opening to prepare for childbirth. This not only affects your health, but it also affects the growth and development of your baby.

The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of subluxation and/or SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neurobiomechanical function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved.

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.

When you come in to see us, we will first discuss your current well-being and learn more about your pregnancy. We will then conduct a non-invasive physical examination to get a better idea of what we might be able to do to for you. Please note that we do not perform X-ray imaging on pregnant practice members.

Once we have a better understanding of your condition, we will move forward with your first chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Kirk is certified in the Webster Technique, a pregnancy-specific adjustment method. We offer pregnancy tables and pregnancy pillows to keep you comfortable while under care.
