Prenatal and Postnatal
One of the more common techniques we utilize is the Webster technique, a chiropractic technique focused on reducing or eliminating the effects of sacral subluxation and SI joint dysfunction. The former tends to cause an extremely difficult labor for women, often brought about by pelvic contractions or poor uterine function.

Pregnancy adds extra stresses to the body, especially on the spine and pelvic areas. Dr. Amanda Jenkins can help you to deal with many common prenatal and postnatal conditions.
During pregnancy, a woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of her pelvis. This additional weight in front causes stress to the joints of the pelvis and low back.
As the baby grows in size, the added weight causes the curvature of her lower back to increase, placing extra stress on the fragile facet joints on the posterior spine. Any preexisting problems in a woman’s spine tend to be exacerbated as the spine and pelvis become overtaxed, often leading to pain and difficulty performing normal daily activities.
There are various symptoms a woman may suffer from during pregnancy that can be relieved with the help of an experienced chiropractor. Some of these symptoms include:
- Round Ligament Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Trying for VBAC
- Breech/ Transverse Malposition
- Pelvic Floor Weakness
- Lower back pain
