During pregnancy, a properly functioning nervous system and structural support is very important for the mother and child.  

A woman's body goes through many hormonal changes, often causing loose ligaments, which can lead to pelvic and spinal bones shifting out of alignment. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy maintains the body's balance and proper alignment, and supports optimal nerve function. Many women find that this leads to decreased morning sickness, improved mobility and flexibility, and less lower back and pelvic pain.

As an aside, the benefits of chiropractic care begin prior to conception and include regulation of the menstrual cycle and uterine function, reduction in uterine constraint, and optimal nerve supply to reproductive organs.

Dr. Sandez is certified in the Webster Chiropractic Technique, which may help correct breech fetal presentation. Following an examination, specific adjustments are performed that will restore alignment and decrease uterine constraint, which may allow the child to return to a natural birthing position.
