Chiropractic Care with Dr. Darren Porcaro, DC Provides for a Safer & More Comfortable Pregnancy Along with a Faster Delivery
Prenatal Chiropractor in Holmdel: During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, misalignments can occur which can cause disorders that can affect the nerves, muscles or organs.
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of misalignments and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Dr. Darren Porcaro, DC can adjust the spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.

Dr. Porcaro is certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This gentle technique helps ease a pregnant woman’s discomfort and can aid in proper positioning of the baby. This technique can help babies to turn naturally in-utero, which can help avoid birth trauma associated with breech births and cesarean births.
Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during pregnancy. The pain is primarily caused by the weight that must be balanced by an overworked spine and support system. Furthermore, a smooth and uncomplicated delivery has a lot to do with the state of your body. A body that is stressed, misaligned and worn out can result in complications during labor.
A study performed by the American Medical Association Board of Trustees concluded that women who received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver with far more comfort. Additionally, the need for painkillers was also reduced by half in several patients in another well-known study.
