Pasadena Prenatal Chiropractor

Dr. Kevin Cressey is a pregnancy chiropractor in Pasadena, certified in the Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association ─ a specialized practice designed to promote the health and wellness of pregnant women.

Seeking chiropractic care throughout the duration of a pregnancy can offer a number of advantages, including:

  • Reasons to Have Prenatal Chiropractic Care

    A woman’s body undergoes countless transformations during pregnancy, including postural adaptations, protruding abdomen and increased back curve, and pelvic changes, which can lead to a misaligned spine or joints. Not only can Dr. Cressey work to ensure the spine and joints do not become misaligned, he can also help pregnant women establish pelvic balance and alignment.

  • Advantages of Visiting a Chiropractor During Pregnancy

    Obtaining chiropractic care can help pregnant women achieve an all-around healthier pregnancy. Many patients experience reduced nausea and significantly less back, neck and joint pain. Chiropractic techniques can also have a positive impact on the birthing process, by reducing the time of labor and delivery and helping to prevent the need for a cesarean section.

  • Safety of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

    Many expectant mothers hesitate to seek the assistance of a chiropractor, as they believe the techniques used may cause harm to their unborn child. However, this is far from the case. There are not any known safety issues associated with utilizing chiropractic care during pregnancy. All exercises, stretches and techniques performed by Dr. Cressey are completely safe for pregnant women.

  • Impact on Fetal Positioning

    The Webster Technique, used by Dr. Cressey, allows chiropractors to create balance in the pelvis and reduce unnecessary stress to the uterus and supporting ligaments. It has been clinically proven to promote optimal fetal positioning. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that pregnant women receive chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy, to reduce the chance of a breech birth.
