Pregnancy & Postpartum Care at
Nobleton Chiropractic and Rehab

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic protocol that balances the pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces nervous system stress, and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function for pregnancy and birth. It is commonly used on pregnant women because it is a safe and effective way to relieve lower back, hip and pelvic pain.

The Webster protocol starts with a specific assessment of joints, muscles and ligaments of the lower back and pelvic region. From there, a gentle drop adjustment is performed along with muscle and ligament trigger point therapy to the areas of tightness or reduced movement. This treatment is often in addition to postural and sleeping recommendations, as well as at-home stretching/strengthening routines.

During pregnancy is it common for women to suffer from:

  • Low back & hip pain
  • Sciatic nerve irritation
  • S/I joint dysfunction

This protocol can help reduce tense muscles and ligaments that can prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best position for birth. This allows for a more comfortable pregnancy not only for yourself but also for your baby!

Postpartum Rehabilitation

Dr. Kirstie has training in Post-partum rehabilitation and focuses on activating and strengthening your body specifically your core and pelvic floor.

Her goal is to assess how your body moves after your pregnancy & delivery to help you heal and strengthening to prevent future lower back & pelvic pain and urinatory incontinence.

Any mom at any stage of their post partum can benefit from specific rehabilitation regardless of the type of birth.

Dr. Kirstie is trained to assess and treat moms at any stage of postpartum to help prevent, reduce or resolve issues such as:

  • Diastasis Recti
  • Incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Low back pain
  • Injuries common to new mommas

If you had your child some time ago, you may still be in need of restoring your core and pelvic floor. In some women the muscle function is restored quickly following delivery, while in others the dysfunction persists. This may show up as recurrent low back pain, inability to control your bladder when jumping or sneezing, or a persistent separation of your abdominal muscles
