My name is Dr. Russell Brokstein, director of Hometown Family Wellness Center located in Freehold, NJ. By using my gentle chiropractic techniques over the past 13 years, I’ve been fortunate to help pregnant women suffer less and have more joyful pregnancies. That includes both my sisters with their 5 pregnancies as well as many other women in the Freehold area in Monmouth County, New Jersey.
A clinical study suggests this natural drug-free treatment can give you up to 95% improvement in 2 days.
Pregnancy can be overwhelming at times.
If not addressed, these conditions can have a negative impact on your lifestyle and can make your delivery much more difficult.
Chiropractic care has a long, proven track record in helping pregnant women during this constantly changing, yet delicate time. Here’s what one study had to say about chiropractic and pregnancy…
“84% of patients receiving spinal manipulative therapy [chiropractic care] reported relief of back pain during pregnancy. There was significantly less likelihood of back labor when spinal manipulative therapy was administered during pregnancy.” — JMPT 1991
This confirms that not only is chiropractic care the best, natural drug-free solution to your back pain, but it will make your back labor much less painful.
Add to this what childcare experts and authors Dr. William and Martha Sears state in their highly praised The Pregnancy Book, ” chiropractic care in pregnancy can help to…
“avoid or relieve back pain and also prepare your back and pelvic structures for the stresses of labor and birth.”
Furthermore, it’s vital to both mother and baby that the pelvis be in proper balance and alignment during pregnancy. If the pelvis is out of place, it can cause “intrauterine constraint“, restricting the room available for the growing baby.
Both my sisters were informed by their doctors that because our mother had 3 c-sections, that they were likely to need c-sections to deliver. Luckily they let me adjust them during their pregnancies, and all 4 of my nephews and 1 niece were born naturally, no complications with very short deliveries on average of 2 hours. The MD’s were shocked, but as a chiropractor, this is very common and regular result of chiropractic treatment.
A bad pelvic alignment can also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best position for delivery.
One such position is called “breech” presentation where the baby is not positioned headfirst — making the delivery difficult and even dangerous for mother and child. But scientific studies have proven a special chiropractic technique has extraordinary success with helping breech babies.
One study (J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2002 ) confirmed that this unique approach helps the mother’s body turn the baby. Of 112 cases studied, 102 of them turned correctly after this gentle procedure was performed…
That’s A Success Rate of 92% in Helping Turn Breech Presentations
In fact, many medical and healthcare associations recommend chiropractic care for pregnant mothers. The American Pregnancy Association said the following about chiropractic…
“Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Prevent a potential cesarean section
