As a mother, you hold a sacred privilege. No one in the world can do what you do, and I don't just mean the creation of life. I also mean every motherly instinct you have that no one else can receive.

You have been empowered with a sacred trust to create and watch over the future of this world. However as they say; with great power comes great responsibility. With every pregnancy comes all the highs; like feeling your baby move for the first time, and the inevitable lows like back pain or morning sickness. Cadence Chiropractic is here to support you on this journey in any way we can.

all women.   
 

Webster Technique

Dr Nelson is one of 5 chiropractors in Utah Valley that is certified in the Webster technique for pregnancy. Webster technique is gentle adjustment that seeks to remove the stress and misalignments in the pelvis. Removing the stress of the pelvis will allow the baby to grow and develop as well as decrease potential complications during delivery. 

What the research says: 


A preliminary study on 34 pregnant women found that Logan Basic technique can decrease labor time and                                                                                      pain. Of the 34 women 17 were first time mothers and the                                                                                        average time for delivery was 10 hours (compared to a 24-                                                                                        hour average) and second/third time mothers dropped to 4                                                                                      hours. The research also showed that only 3 births were                                                                                            delivered by C section and only 3 received an episiotomy.                                                                                          Chiropractic can decrease labor time and pain!

                                                                                    A recent study in the American journal of  obstetrics found                                                                                        that women under chiropractic care showed a significant                                                                                            decrease in back pain during pregnancy. The chiropractic                                                                                            group showed significant improvement over the second                                                                                              group of OB/GYN only care. In fact it was noted that the                                                                                              group under OB/GYN care only showed no measurable                                                                                              decrease in back pain at all.  
Is chiropractic safe for pregnancy? 
A systematic review, which is considered one of the highest qualities of evidence, showed that Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe for both mother and baby. The activator method and other low force techniques such as Logan Basic specifically are among the safest techniques in chiropractic.
