Dr. Foss treats pregnant women with gentle chiropractic adjustments to help with things like back pain often experienced with pregnancy. He also uses Webster Technique to balance the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and delivery, as well as give the growing baby room in the womb.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, Chiropractic is a very safe and effective treatment to restore motion to the spine and joints during pregnancy. During pregnancy, there are several physiologic and endocrine changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints:
- Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
- Pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
