Chiropractic care is vital for both the pregnant mother and baby to ensure normal physiological and mechanical function. By addressing the alignment of the pelvis, pregnant mothers can benefit from gentle adjustments and soft tissue work for safe, effective and drug-free pain relief during pregnancy. When the mother’s pelvis is balanced, aligned and at ease, mothers may experience a more comfortable pregnancy and labor while baby is allowed plenty of space for positioning and development. Expecting mothers at our clinic are treated with expert care using Webster Technique, an advanced method of analyzing and softly correcting pelvic balance, movement and alignment. Dr. Melissa Ko is Webster Certified for gentle perinatal care that uses soft, hands-on chiropractic adjustments to focus on the joints, muscles, ligaments and soft tissues of the pelvis. These adjustments release tension, ease aches and pains, and allow optimal alignment for the baby and mother.
