In most cases, chiropractic care is safe and effective during pregnancy. When you’re pregnant, your body releases specific hormones that soften your ligaments. Because of this, Dr. Hausman can gently manipulate your body without the more aggressive techniques commonly associated with chiropractic alignments.
He uses hands-on manipulation techniques and gentle stretches to improve your spinal alignment. He may also prescribe regular at-home exercises to help stabilize your spine and reinforce the manipulations he does in the office.
Dr. Hausman can reduce, and sometimes eliminate, the unwanted symptoms caused by pregnancy. He can safely and efficiently reduce pain in your:
Because of pregnancy weight gain, the imbalance it creates, and hormonal changes that make your joints soften, your spine is often pulled out of alignment.
By gently manipulating the spine back into place, Dr. Hausman not only reduces your pain; he decreases the frequency and severity of headaches and eliminates sciatica symptoms.
The Webster technique uses gentle hand manipulations to optimize your baby’s birth position in the womb. In many cases, Dr. Hausman, an expert in the Webster technique, can turn a breech baby into the natural delivery position, significantly lowering a mother’s risk of needing a cesarean section.
Developed by chiropractor Larry Webster, this method has up to a 90% success rate. By using body positioning, Dr. Hausman encourages the fetus to flip either forward or backward into the correct orientation for birth.
If you see Dr. Hausman for back, hip, or leg pain during your pregnancy, he recommends appointments once a month during the first trimester, then every 2-3 weeks until the end of your pregnancy.
If you’re at risk for a breech delivery, Dr. Hausman recommends scheduling an appointment during your eighth month to ensure the baby is in the correct position. If not, he can assist in turning the fetus with the Webster technique.
