As a Webster Technique certified practitioner and a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), Dr. Leavitt supports expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy. There is a notion that back pain and discomfort is normal during pregnancy. Although a woman’s body is going through many physical changes, there is no reason she cannot have an enjoyable, active experience.
Dr. Leavitt uses light force as well as standard, diversified techniques to help a woman as her body is changing. The Webster Technique is specifically geared towards creating an environment for optimal fetal positioning. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is intended to promote a healthy pregnancy and an uneventful labor and delivery.
Prenatal Kinesiology Taping
Kinesiology Taping during pregnancy can be used in many ways. The “baby belt” application provides a lot of relief for pubic bone and lower abdominal pain. It makes sleeping during pregnancy more comfortable and makes it easier to move. In general, this taping application is much more comfortable than a typical belt worn during pregnancy. It also eases rib and belly pain with sitting.
