SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Santa Monica chiropractor Dr. Viktorija Joga is educating patients about the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy. Prenatal wellness care is one of Dr. Joga's main focuses at Joga Chiropractic Center. During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes profound changes that can cause pelvic pain and joint discomfort. Off-kilter pelvic alignment can also complicate the delivery process. Dr. Joga offers gentle spinal adjustments, along with the Webster Technique, to help ease pregnancy pain and prepare a woman's body to give birth.
Chiropractor Dr. Viktorija Joga shares that her practice, Joga Chiropractic Center, offers prenatal wellness care for expectant mothers. Gentle, hands-on adjustments help prepare a woman's body for delivery while easing pregnancy pain.
"Chiropractic treatments go beyond pain management and injury rehabilitation," said Dr. Joga. "These treatments help patients live long, healthy lives by enhancing their overall well-being. Chiropractic prenatal care is an important treatment available for women that can make a significant difference for their health during pregnancy."
Dr. Joga offers a special pregnancy adjustment known as the Webster Technique. This gentle adjustment technique is designed to prevent intrauterine constraint, a pelvic misalignment that can cause problems during delivery.
"For many women, the joys of impending motherhood are tempered by the uncomfortable pain of pregnancy," said Dr. Joga. "Gentle chiropractic adjustments, including the Webster Technique, are a safe and effective way to manage this pain and maintain proper alignment for birth."
Pregnancy hormones help to loosen ligaments in response to the expanding uterus. However, looser ligaments make it more difficult to maintain proper spinal alignment and hold the pelvis securely in place. Coupled with an intensified spinal curvature and pressure from the growing baby, many women end up struggling with pain throughout their pregnancy, says Dr. Joga.
The Webster Technique is a special chiropractic technique for balancing the pelvis while reducing stress on the ligaments that support the uterus.
"Chiropractic adjustments, including the Webster Technique, help to restore proper alignment to the spine, including the pelvis and sacrum," said Dr. Joga. "The goal with these adjustments is to ease pain and pressure on the spine while preparing the body for a successful, natural birth."
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Joga also integrates massage therapy into her prenatal care treatments for enhanced back pain relief.
"My goal is to help each woman achieve a natural birth while minimizing pregnancy pain," said Dr. Joga. "I do not want women to be afraid of the birthing process or anxious about pregnancy pain. Instead, my goal is to help women relax and cherish this unique experience. By working integrating a variety of complementary treatments, I am best able to achieve this goal."
