Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment

Pregnancy pain? Chiropractic can help.

Webster Technique certified Dr. Tracy Debi combines hip blocking, lumbopelvic adjustments and activator treatments to alleviate pelvic discomfort for pregnant and postpartum patients. Webster Technique is grounded in the physiological concept that utilizing sacral chiropractic treatment throughout pregnancy may eliminate the causes of pelvic pain and promote optimal positioning of the fetus, thereby easing the labour and birth process. 


What is Webster Technique?

Webster Technique is best described as a specific sacral adjustment, aimed at facilitating pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus and reduces pain associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction and pubis symphysis dysfunction.

Is Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment Safe?

Yes, Chiropractic is safe during all stages of a healthy pregnancy, with some modifications for your comfort and physical limitations. All Chiropractors are trained to safely treat pregnant people. Like all healthcare treatments, Chiropractic does carry some risks alongside its benefits, but your Chiropractic Doctor at Anatomica is trained to assess your health and any potential red flags prior to treatment. You will always remain in control of your treatment plan: if you have questions or concerns, please voice them freely with your Chiropractic Doctor, so that you can work together to individualize your treatment. As with all manual therapy treatments, techniques can be modified to safely suit your health needs, contraindications, and personal preferences.

If I’m pregnant, do I have to book a specialty Prenatal treatment?

Anatomica’s Prenatal Chiropractic treatment with Webster-Technique trained Chiropractic Doctor Tracy Debi is a longer initial appointment and incorporates specialty techniques like pelvic blocking and sacral adjustments, but all Chiropractic Doctors are trained to treat pregnant patients. If you prefer a classic Chiropractic appointment, you are welcome to book a regular session with either of our Chiropractic doctors!

I may need support at my appointment, can a friend come with me?

Absolutely! You are always welcome to have a support person with you during any of your appointments at Anatomica. They may stay with you for the duration of your appointment or relax in our waiting room while you are being treated.

Will treatment be covered by my insurance plan?

Most major benefits plans offer coverage for Chiropractic treatment — including Prenatal Chiropractic treatments — and we offer direct billing for Chiropractic, Massage Therapy and Acupuncture on many major plans. Please consult your individual plan for coverage details.
