Pregnancy Chiropractic Care Durham

Dr. Thacker adjusting pregnant womanWhile pregnancy is considered an exciting time in a woman’s life, it also is associated with numerous aches and pains. That’s why we are happy to offer women safe and drug-free chiropractic care for every stage of pregnancy. Dr. Thacker used chiropractic care on his wife throughout each of her five pregnancies. “If I didn’t feel it was safe, I definitely wouldn’t have used it on my wife and unborn child.”

Beneficial at Every Stage

You can elect to be under chiropractic care even before you conceive. But whether you start care from the day you find out you’re pregnant or later in your pregnancy, you can experience many benefits:

  • Helps to maintain a healthy pregnancy
  • Relieves back, neck and hip pain
  • Decreases pelvic pain
  • Helps to control nausea
  • Provides an optimal environment for the developing baby
  • Allows the labor and birth process to progress more smoothly
  • May decrease labor time
  • Could reduce interventions during delivery

The Webster Technique

Dr. Thacker has successfully used the Webster Technique on many moms-to-be. It balances the pelvis and provides an optimum environment for the baby to grow. The technique also reduces stress to the ligaments that support the uterus.

Help for Infertility

Many mothers at our practice had trouble conceiving or carrying a child to term. With the help of chiropractic, acupuncture or both, they now have children. For years, one of our patients had been trying to conceive. She had been through the medical route with in vitro fertilization (IVF) and would become pregnant. Sadly, she was not able to maintain the pregnancies and miscarried multiple times.

Dr. Thacker began to treat her, adding acupuncture to her chiropractic care. As a result, she became pregnant and was able to maintain her pregnancy to full term. The woman delivered a healthy and happy baby girl.
