At Untamed Wellness we believe pregnancy does not have to be painful. Your body undergoes many changes and challenges during pregnancy that can lead to pain but when addressed correctly this pain can be minimal or even non existent. Working with a chiropractor specializing in pregnancy can help improve balance in the low back and pelvis which can alleviate stress on the low back. Having proper pelvic alignment can also lead to improved positioning of baby. Rotation in the pelvis can lead to improper positioning of baby and increased pain for patient. Dr. Perkins evaluates and treats pregnant patients through the lens of the Webster Technique. Webster helps restore balance to the pelvis making the patient more comfortable and providing baby as much room as possible to be in an ideal position for both fetal development and labor.

What is the Webster technique for pregnancy?
The Webster technique is a chiropractic adjustment protocol specifically designed for pregnancy. Our Webster trained chiropractor in Littleton assess pelvic balance as well as muscle tension in the muscles that assist the pelvis. The protocol aims to ensure proper pelvic balance as well as reduce muscle tension in the pelvis and low back. This allows the baby enough to grow and develop. In later stages of pregnancy it is important for the pelvis to maintain proper balance to allow for baby to get into a head down position to prepare for labor.
