Pregnancy should be 40 weeks of joy, love and being spoiled by those around you. But for many women, pregnancy can be an uncomfortable experience. The physical and hormonal changes involved with pregnancy come with changes of the spinal and pelvic alignment. This alteration, or misalignment, is often very uncomfortable (and sometimes painful) for the pregnant mother. But it doesn’t have to be.

One of the hormones that increases during pregnancy is Relaxin. Relaxin helps ligaments, especially those in the pelvic area, to loosen up to accommodate the expansion of the growing baby and uterus. While Relaxin helps your bones shift in order to make room for the baby, it can also make those pelvic bones unstable in their position. This usually causes painful misalignment for the pregnant mother. This is why chiropractic during pregnancy is important.

The elaborate network of ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves along your spine and pelvis are important to maintaining proper functionality for your whole body. Obviously when you have a misalignment, complications can arise, for pregnant women one of those complications can be a baby in the breech position late in the pregnancy. Or less concerning (but just as irritating) symptoms such as headaches, acid reflux, constipation, leg pain and back pain. Chiropractic care can provide relief for all these symptoms.

Because of the way your pelvis and sacrum as set up, they move as one (most of the time.) So when one part of the pelvis has moved backwards, the opposite side is moved forward. This can cause the sacrum to tilt, which often causes pain and/or tightness in the legs. This tilting can also cause the birth canal to narrow, making natural childbirth complicated. If the baby doesn’t have the proper amount of room to move they will not be able to get into the correct head down position for birth or they may not be able to move down further into pelvis for delivery.

The Webster In-Utero Constraint Technique, also called the Webster Technique, is used in chiropractic to balance the pelvis properly, while reducing the stress on the ligaments that support the uterus.

The round ligaments that hold the uterus in place within the abdomen can become thin and tight. This sometimes causes sharp pains and restricts the space that baby has to maneuver within the womb. This restricted movement often causes a baby to stay in a breech position beyond 37 weeks. A certified Webster practitioner can use this specific technique to properly align the pelvis and sacrum, relieve the tightness in the round ligaments and abdomen. This will allow the baby to shift freely within the womb and they will usually settle into the proper birthing position.

Dr. Brie is certified in the Webster Technique. If you are pregnant, come in for an adjustment as soon as possible!

Dr. Brie is exceptional and really fills the need for chiropractic services for pregnant woman and infants. I have taken my infant son to her, as well as had adjustments myself while pregnant, and feel safe knowing that we are receiving tailored chiropractic care for our needs.

My husband got hurt his back and work and seeing Dr. Brie was the ONLY treatment that provided him relief. After his success I decided to take my athletic son to see Dr. Brie. Since seeing him he has improved greatly and is feeling fantastic. Naturally I decided it was my turn to give treatment I try. I saw Dr. Chad who provided me so much relief to my aching back muscles from every day use and lifting a little one constantly. It was easy to get an appointment and Heather at the front desk is friendly and easy to schedule with. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Brie and Dr. Chad whether it be for an injury or just wellness care. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!

I love Live Well! I had a headache everyday before I met Dr. Brie! I love their new location it’s homey yet professional, a nice environment. Not that I have children but, it is nice they have a child’s room for them to play. Dr. Brie truly cares about her patients and you’ll see her behind the counter scheduling and taking payments, it’s a true team effort there! I have never had any issues and really feel like more than “just a patient”. I recommend to any and everyone!

I started seeing Dr. Brie for preventive chiropractic care several years ago. I met her at my office when she came in as part of a staff wellness day and she was kind enough to gently point out how much I needed her help (aka, how crooked and tight I was through my neck and spine). Though skeptical, I committed to a full evaluation, and I have been going regularly ever since. Dr. Brie has helped me tremendously with neck pain after a minor car accident, as well as my chronic low back pain. I can't thank her enough! Dr. Brie and Dr. Chad are both wonderful people and practitioners. They are always smiling, professional, and happy to help. I highly recommend them both and will continue to trust them with my care!

Dr. Brie came highly recommended by my prenatal providers at the beginning of my pregnancy and I saw her every week from 10 weeks on. This was my second pregnancy and without a doubt, the chiropractic care made a huge difference this time around. I was more comfortable, slept better, and overall felt healthier. I would also bring my 2 year old to all my appointments and I love how family friendly Dr. Brie and the whole staff is. They do such an amazing job at taking care of the whole family! When my daughter was born, she had a pretty rough colicky period. I started taking her for biweekly adjustments because she was literally a different baby after seeing Dr. Brie. Even other family members noticed the difference in her demeanor. I can't say enough about this practice. It's been a great experience and I love having chiro as apart of my regular health care!

A great friend referred us to Dr. Chad. I was skeptical of taking my 15 year old son to a Chiropractor for knee issues, however he was facing sitting out the main season of Lacrosse (after being sidelined for the fall season) which would have been devastating to him. Dr. Chad does active release therapy and within a couple of sessions the pain was gone and he was running again!! This after 3 years of physical therapy, topical steroid treatments, rest periods, and a lot of missed opportunities. We've referred other young athletes to him and he has "fixed" them as well! I have become an unofficial spokesperson for Live Well - I can't recommend them enough!!!!
