Dr. Moses has made such a difference in my postpartum experience. I was experiencing extreme pain in my back when I went home with my newborn. Dr. Moses quickly diagnosed my issue and crafted a plan to get me headed in the right direction. While I would limp into the office, I would be able to walk out comfortably with a plan for continued improvement at home. Highly recommend Dr. Moses for pregnancy and postpartum alignment concerns!
Dr. Andrea, and the whole team, is amazing! She has been taking great care of my family (myself, husband, 5yo, and 2yo) for many years now. She cared for me before, during, and after my last pregnancy and I brought my baby to her a few days after birth. I only wish I had met her before my first pregnancy. She is intuitive, gentle, kind, compassionate, and incredibly knowledgeable.
Dr. Andrea is extremely knowledgeable about children’s and women’s chiropractic work, especially during pregnancy and post-pregnancy, and she is just incredible at her job. I have suffered with multiple debilitating migraines a week for years, and since receiving adjustments from Dr. Andrea consistently for the past few months they’re almost non-existent. My 3 children ages 6, 3 and 17 months get adjusted regularly as well. I recommend Dr. Andrea 10/10, you will absolutely not regret it, she’s one of the best.
Lower Back Pain
Low back pain during pregnancy is caused by increased stress on the lumbar spine by an anterior shift in the center of gravity. Increase mobility and reduce pain using healing adjustments and exercises.
Pelvic Pain and Pubis Dysfunction
One problem that many pregnant women complain about is pubic pain. Yet doctors often dismiss this pain as either “inconsequential,” “unfixable,” or “just one of those pregnancy discomforts that have to be endured.”Yet none of this is true. Pubic pain in pregnancy is certainly not “inconsequential”; it can also be very difficult to deal with. Although many do not know what causes it or how to fix it, many women are able to get improvement or relief with chiropractic treatment. It is not something that you “just have to live with.”
Round Ligament Pain
Round Ligament Pain is common in pregnancy and can cause extreme discomfort due to the ligaments in the pelvis stretching. It may also be caused by a uterus that’s tilted, which puts pressure on the ligaments.
Sciatic Nerve Pain
Some studies suggest the baby’s growth contributes to uterine pressure on supporting vasculature or direct compression of the sciatic nerve, which results in low back pain with radiation into the legs.
Specific techniques enables chiropractors to establish balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and reduce undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments.
This balanced state in the pelvis has been clinically shown to allow for optimal fetal positioning. The technique is known as the Webster Technique.
Most birth practitioners are not concerned with breech presentations until a patient is 32 weeks along.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported in the July/August 2002 issue an 82% success rate of babies turning vertex when doctors of chiropractic used the Webster Technique.
Further, the results from the study suggest it may be beneficial to perform the Webster Technique, as soon as the 8th month of pregnancy, when a woman has a breech presentation.
Shoulder and Neck Pain
This complex center of nerves fees every part of your arms from the shoulder through your fingertips. If it becomes injured, pinching pain, numbness, weakness and other sensations may clue you into the fact that misalignment has taken place. Chiropractic care, along with massage, myofascial therapy and other forms of therapy can relieve the nerves of their stress.
