Where to Start for a Natural and Healthy Pregnancy | Prenatal Chiropractor in Lubbock, TX

Hey there, it’s Dr. Greg Marin from 1-Spine Chiropractic. Today, we’re focusing on adjusting Sarah, who’s 24 weeks pregnant and expecting. Our goal is to ensure she feels great, and we’ll demonstrate just how easy, safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic adjustments can be for both her and the little one.

Neck Adjustment & Mid-Back Adjustment

We’ll start with her neck, palpating to identify misaligned bones. Ah, got a couple here. That’s gonna feel amazing. Now, onto the mid-back. Sometimes, as we grow, our back tightens up, so we’ll loosen those vertebrae, providing relief. Sarah, go ahead and cross your arms. Perfect, found a few more. Good job!

Pelvis and Sacrum Evaluation

With the thoracic spine cleared, let’s focus on her lumbar spine and pelvis. Sarah, go face down for me. These tables are adjustable for comfort and room as she grows. We’ll evaluate her pelvis and sacrum. Lift that leg up for me. Now the other one. Alright, let’s work on that left SI joint. Cross your leg for me. Better? Great. Now, let’s address the right pelvis rotation.

Activator Instrument for Lumbar Adjustment

Good. Finally, we’ll use an activator instrument for the lumbar spine. This gentle adjustment ensures Sarah feels well throughout her pregnancy, promoting better communication between her brain and body, benefiting her nervous system and baby.
