With prenatal chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Renee will adjust her techniques by applying gentle pressure and focusing more on the pelvic region. Adjustments can also help alleviate pressure and reduce stress on the uterus and ligaments. A common reason for prenatal adjustments is due to a condition called intrauterine constraint. This happens when the baby’s movements are restricted due to pelvis misalignment and can potentially result in a C-section or complications at birth if left misaligned.
