with Dr Amanda Stevens
Pregnant women have special needs. This we all know! We are usually very accommodating. We open doors, give extra food, and tidy up so that they can rest on the couch. The special treatment should not stop there! Pregnancy chiropractic care is a fantastic way to make it through pregnancy with the least amount of discomfort possible.
A pregnant woman’s body is undergoing tremendous and wonderful changes, but these changes aren’t without potential issues. The increase of weight in the front alters their center of gravity and changes the biomechanical forces in the joints as she walks and moves. As she nears the end of her nine month adventure, the ligaments that hold the joints together start to loosen in preparation of the big day. If the joints don’t feel stable anymore because of the lax ligaments, then the muscles will become tense around them to provide additional support.
A woman’s body works very hard to build that baby! That body deserves special treatment. Chiropractor care is a safe and effective way to ensure your body is ready for the big day and that you are comfortable on the journey there.
Although chiropractic care has amazing benefits when delivered from any chiropractor in Kelowna or the Okanagan, why not seek out the pregnancy chiropractor, the one who specializes in the pregnant body, biomechanics, and unique needs of pregnant women? Dr Amanda Stevens has extensive training and experience which enables her to offer gentle, pregnancy specific manual care, unparalleled in the Okanagan. She is certified in the Webster Technique, an entire chiropractic technique specifically designed for pregnant pelvis. ( To learn more about it, check out this page.) She continually is interacting with and learning from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (I.C.P.A.), an organization devoted to furthering conserative pediatric and pregnancy care. (You can find links to large amounts of research in the realm on the ICPA website here.)
