Chiropractic Care Can Contribute to Safer Birth

Feb 01, 2020 09:00AM

Upper Cervical Health Centers provides prenatal and perinatal care for all women who are hoping to become or are currently pregnant. The center recently welcomed Dr. Amanda Richerson into the practice. Richerson is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and a Webster Certified Chiropractic physician.

“Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. The Webster Technique is a chiropractic analysis and adjustment aimed at reducing the effects of pelvic imbalance. During birth, pelvic imbalance can negatively affect labor progression, leading to unnecessary intervention. Pelvic imbalance can also adversely affect uterine nerve function, the structure of the pelvis and may hinder a baby’s ability to gain optimal positioning for labor. These are the very causes of dystocia or difficult, stalled labor. The Webster Technique helps achieve a state of balance in the pelvis that may contribute to a safer, easier birth outcome,” says Richerson.

To make an appointment with Dr. Amanda Richerson, call 321-622-4447. Upper Cervical Health Center, 1600 W Eau Gallie Blvd, Ste 104, Melbourne.
