Chiropractic services can be very beneficial to you during pregnancy. While you are pregnant, hormonal and physiological changes take place in your body to create an ideal environment for the developing baby. However, some of these changes can cause misaligned vertebrae or other joints, and lead to pain and other health issues. Chiropractic care can make sure you are comfortable and healthy during your pregnancy, so your baby is, too.
Your pelvis can also become misaligned during pregnancy, which can reduce the room in your womb for the baby. With less room, the baby may not be able to get into the best position for birth. Breech babies are often the result of misaligned pelvises, and this can cause you to have to have a C-section instead of a natural childbirth. Chiropractors can use gentle, non-invasive techniques to re-align your pelvis to create a roomy, ideal environment for your baby.
In addition to the above benefits, chiropractic care can also do the following things for you when you are pregnant:
The Webster Technique is a well-known chiropractic method for turning breech babies in the womb. This means no unnecessary C-sections and more safe, non-invasive, comfortable natural childbirths. It is estimated that four percent of births in the United States are breech. That is a lot of babies who are turned the wrong way. The Webster Technique has a proved 82 percent rate of success in turning babies to the correct position before they are born. This success rate has been reported on by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics.
The Webster Technique can be performed as soon as the eighth month of pregnancy, which is when most breech births first present themselves. If you have had regular chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy, there is a much better chance that you won't have to deal with a breech situation at all. However, if you haven't been getting chiropractic care during your pregnancy, and find that your baby is breech, a chiropractor can still be of benefit to you, not only in turning the baby, but in making you more comfortable before the birth, as well.
The Webster Technique will open up your pelvic floor, which will create more room in your uterus. This allows the chiropractor to manually turn the baby with ease, simply by pressing on your uterus in the correct places.

I started coming to Dr. Lund a few months ago. I have improved so much. I have never let better! I have no more PMS!! I am a lot calmer and I look and feel more relaxed. If you don't believe me, ask my husband.
Dr Lund is a great chiropractor. Besides the ease of scheduling and a clean office, his skills are unmatched. I have been to 7 chiropractors in different parts of the country, and none have been as effective as Dr Lund. He doesn't have you come in and do some elaborate first time visit full of X-rays or tests, but listens well to your concerns, feels your problem areas and adjusts you quickly. In minutes you are in and out with no stress and feeling 100% better. Don't waste your time looking for another chiropractor, just call him..
Professional, polite, proactive, delightful. Having back pain since a child I sceptically decided to go to a chiropractor at age 40 (my back pain was not acceptable anymore). Dr Lund explained the cause & affect of my back pain & surprisingly why I may I also be having intestinal issues that my body/back is trying to accommodate for. He has a good bed side manner yet is firm with his advise (ie: try harder & do daily back exercises). I needed that.
