Chiropractic Care Supports Healthy Pregnancy for Mother and Baby
Dr. Lester cares for his pregnant patients with the same philosophy that drives his entire practice: overall health and well being through gentle chiropractic care that enables your nervous system to function at its best and your body to engage its inborn natural ability to heal and thrive.
Low force chiropractic care is ideal for pregnant women as they embark on a journey that can be both physically and psychically exhilarating and challenging. The gentle techniques Hudson Valley chiropractor Dr. Lester employs, including the Webster Chiropractic Technique, serve to optimize a woman’s natural energies, establish pelvic balance and alignment, and release and redirect tensions caused by new internal and external stressors.
Women seeking to maintain optimal health and relieve backache during pregnancy due to pressures and tensions of hormonal changes, weight gain, and postral adaptations will benefit from the gentle, no force chiropractic care that Dr. Lester provides. Even prior to pregnancy, chiropractic care helps promote a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function by supporting proper nerve supply to reproductive organs.
Chiropractic and Pregnancy
During pregnancy, the pressures and tensions of hormonal changes, weight gain, and postral adaptations can cause specific pelvic muscles and ligaments to tighten and tense.
Dr. Lester provides pregnant women with specific sacral analysis and diversified adjustments specific to their condition using the a technique developed by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
This technique, which supports maternal nerve system stress, alleviates sacral imbalance, and optimizes pelvic neuro-biomechanics, also promotes the baby’s developing spine and nerve system and the best possible position for birth.
