Chiropractor for Pregnancy:

We specialize in helping pregnant women manage comfort and pain relief.  Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe, effective and most of all comfortable.  During pregnancy a woman’s posture shifts and changes as the baby grows.  These postural shifts can lead to joint and spinal misalignments called Subluxation.  These subluxations can occur anywhere along the spine, and give rise to low back or neck pain, sciatica, swelling in the limbs or even make it difficult for the baby to achieve optimal positioning within the pelvis for birth.  All of these concerns can be managed safely with conservative chiropractic care.

About Dr. Keri Freshour, Chiropractor for Pregnancy

I am proud to call myself a Mom AND a chiropractor. I’ve been serving pregnant patients in Exton, Lionville, Downingtown and surrounding areas for over 25 years.  Pregnancy patients are some of my favorite people to care for! Since I’m a mom myself, I can empathize with what you’re experiencing. I know what it feels like to deal with the difficulties of being pregnant. I know what it feels like to go through the labor and delivery process. And I also know what the body feels like in recovery afterwards. And because I’m a chiropractor, I know how to care for you and help alleviate those discomforts of pregnancy so you can enjoy the best 40 weeks during your pregnancy. Once baby arrives, I can attest to the importance of alignments to the spine as your body recovers and heals post partum.

I am trained to evaluate your spine for spinal misalignments that can make a huge impact on whether you have a healthy and pain free pregnancy or have to suffer through various symptoms that comes with being pregnant. I even have special pillows that allow you to rest comfortably on the adjusting table while I evaluate and check your spine, without putting pressure on the belly.

You deserve to enjoy the best pregnancy possible during the 40 weeks prior to your baby arriving into this world. And I am here to help care for you and your baby during this wonderful time. I can’t think of a better gift while being pregnant than the gift of a healthy well adjusted spine which in turn leads to a healthy delivery and healthy newborn baby.

What are the Benefits of Chiropractic during pregnancy?

Chiropractic care offers our moms-to-be and opportunity to enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy experience.  It is critical that the pelvis and lumbar spinal segments maintain their best alignment to ensure that the sequence of steps during labor and delivery can occur in a normal manner.  A misaligned pelvis can make it difficult for the baby to find its proper position for birth.  Having regular chiropractic alignments helps to ensure each mom has a safe and expedient delivery when the time comes.

Webster Technique

As part of each expecting mother’s care program, Dr. Keri Freshour is certified to evaluate the pelvis using the Webster Technique.  This is a specific analysis to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. By using this specific analytic method, it restores proper pelvic balance and function.

If the sacrum is misaligned, it can lead to dystocia or difficult labor process.  Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of a sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

If the sacrum is misaligned, it can lead to nerve interference, pelvic misalignment and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.
These tense muscles and ligaments can have an aberent effect on the uterus and may prevent the baby from assuming comfortably the most optimal position for delivery. Pregnant mothers show a significant benefit to having their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing the benefits for mom and baby.
