Huntersville Chiropractor, Dr. Ginni Gross is trained through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in pediatrics and prenatal chiropractic care. She is also certified in the Webster Technique, which is a specific technique used to balance the pelvis of a pregnant woman to allow optimal fetal positioning. Research has shown that women under regular chiropractic care during their pregnancy not only experience less pain as their body grows but also experience quicker labor and delivery.
- A study conducted by Dr Irvin Henderson MD (a member of the American Medical Association Board of Trustees) demonstrated that “Women who received chiropractic adjustments in their third trimester were able to carry and deliver their child with much more comfort.”
- A study was conducted in which chiropractic adjustments were incorporated into patients’ pregnancies. It revealed that the need for painkillers during delivery was reduced by half under chiropractic care.
- Chiropractic researcher Dr. Joan Fallon conducted studies that showed a 24% reduction in average labor time for first-time mothers who received Chiropractic care, and 39% reduction for women who were delivering for the second or third time. This is achieved by improving pelvic joint function and flexibility to prepare the body for the eventual delivery.
