Pregnancy Chiropractic in Pasadena

Why Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

For starters, you’re in the right place. Dr. Adana and Dr. Chris are chiropractors specializing in providing quality pregnancy care. Both completed the Webster Certification process with the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association.

Since opening our doors in 2010, the singular focus for Innate Family Chiropractic has been to serve families. More specifically, to see that family grow from a happy couple to an expectant couple, to new parents, and beyond.

At our practice, we view pregnancy as a natural process, not a nine-month condition. A woman’s body knows how to grow, develop, and birth a baby naturally. One major focus is on the correction of any constraint that could limit the baby’s development or positioning.

With our years of experience, we offer the most comprehensive and unique care plans to suit every mom’s needs.

Tools and Techniques

Head-down positioning of the baby is a key factor in birthing naturally. By utilizing the Webster Technique, we ensure the best opportunities to move to a proper position.

Webster focuses on key landmarks, specifically sacrum and pelvic bones, which attach to the uterus by the round ligaments. Balancing out this area gives baby the best chance for optimal position.

Our adjusting tables accommodate Mom’s growing belly, with drop panels to allow face-down positioning. We assess your progress with INSiGHT™ scans, completely non-invasive and radiation-free. Our very own Dr. Adana followed the exact protocols we recommend our moms use during her own pregnancy.

Benefits of Care

Some benefits our patients have received are

  • Helps maintain good health throughout the pregnancy
  • Better, more restful sleep
  • Helps control morning sickness due to pressure on the nerve
  • Relieves back, neck and joint pain from carrying around the extra weight of the baby
  • Gives baby space to move into optimal birthing position
  • Labor and delivery are quicker and less painful. When Mom’s body is in balance, joints and ligaments are relaxed.
  • Faster postpartum recovery from the changes in your pelvis

FAQs

How can chiropractic help with pregnancy?

In addition to relieving prenatal aches and pains, pregnancy chiropractic care can help improve nerve function. We want to optimize your, and your baby’s, overall health. This also helps control swelling, morning sickness, hormonal swings, and other prenatal side effects. You may even enjoy an easier, quicker labor period.

Is it safe to be adjusted by a chiropractor while pregnant?

Yes, pregnancy chiropractic is completely safe for both the mother and her child. We have adjustment tables designed to comfortably accommodate a woman’s changing body. All of our adjustment techniques are gentle and safe. Our doctors are all certified in the Webster Technique, especially designed for pregnant women.

When should a pregnant woman start going to the chiropractor?

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends receiving care throughout the entire pregnancy. The earlier you prepare your body for pregnancy, the better. We recommend moms start no later than 20 weeks, but this form of care can benefit even those women who start as late as 39 weeks along.
