During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, misalignments can occur, causing disorders that can affect the nerves, muscles or organs.
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of misalignments and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. The team at Holistic Health Care can adjust the spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.
During a pregnancy, going to Holistic Health Care will help to formulate a specific solution to target the problem areas at every stage. Having regular chiropractic care during a pregnancy can reveal important information regarding a person’s overall heath and provide a base for an effective course of action during each stage of a pregnancy.
Chiropractic care has been shown to decrease labor time, reduce the need for pain medications, and may even reduce the incidence of post-partum. Those who are pregnant come to chiropractors with problems such as heartburn, morning sickness, low back pain, breech babies, sciatica, swollen ankles and feet, headaches, and constipation.
The Webster Technique is a specific sacral adjustment that helps to facilitate the mother’s pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles or ligaments and reduces torsion to the uterus. The team at Holistic Health Care is certified in the Webster Technique and has helped many moms before, during and after pregnancy.
Chiropractic care clearly is a great, low-risk option for many discomforts the accompany being pregnant. To schedule an appointment with Holistic Health Care, give us a call today at (408) 294-7692.
I was being treated by another chiropractor without improvement -over a 9 month period my symptoms were getting worse and progressively limiting my activity. After visiting Dr. Kianian I strated feeling better almost immediately.

My girlfriend was being treated by Dr. Kianian for back pain, and asked her if she could treat asthma. Dr. Kianian told me that people often suffer from asthma because the back is misaligned, which causes the chest muscles tighten up against your lungs. I started treatment, and the results have been great. Dr. Kianian fixed the tightness in my muscles and showed me how years of bad posture had caused my spine to curve the wrong way. She knew exactly what the root of my breathing and allergy problems were, and explained everything clearly to me. Now, I feel like I know what I have to do to stay healthy. My breathing is normal and free again. And, it’s now peak allergy season and I haven’t sneezed once yet.

The effectiveness of the treatment here has been a gift! I’ve regained my life. I can sleep the night through without pain – I am essentially pain free now – and I can dance again! I feel less stressed by stressful situations, and I seldom feel neck pain or headaches anymore either. I went in for my back and got more than I thought I needed.

Sometimes, I go in for my appointment feeling so stressed out, from work, or traffic, or whatever. Dr. Kianian always knows exactly where the tension is, even if I barely realize it myself. I mean, she can get rid of a headache instantly, just by putting a little pressure on the right spot. I always walk out of there feeling like a new person.
