If your pregnant chiropractor Emil G. Tompkins DACCP is going to help you to relieve pain and achieve a truly healthy pregnancy.
Congratulations! You are pregnant and looking forward to live with a new bundle of joy. You are already planning life with your new baby and your happy future. Pregnancy has so many joyful moments. But then the worry starts. What are you going to do about making sure baby is healthy? How are you going to ensure you’ll be healthy during this process? You may be asking is you’re doing everything you can for your baby.
Maybe you’re already starting to experience pain during your pregnancy. Your noticing that your body may not feel as stable as usual. That’s because your body is releasing more relaxin – which is a hormone that is causing your body to grow, expand and be ready for carrying and delivering that wonderful little life inside you. But the problem with relaxin is that the ligaments in the spine relax so much that your spine is no longer stable and refuses to stay in a normal position. This creates pain and discomfort in any part of your spine. What’s worse is that it happens before you ever enter the time period where baby and you are growing so much that it’s noticeable.
As baby grows, it becomes harder to get through normal parts of your day. Walking becomes a struggle. Things that should be simple no longer are. Your spine begins to increase in curvature the later you go in your pregnancy. This creates more pressure on the lower back. Baby begins to grow and place pressure on your ribs. Depending where baby’s little rump sits, if it’s on your sciatic nerve, you will notice pain traveling down your legs and feet. so use the pregnant chiropractor program to improve your pain

First I’m going to explain chiropractic in a nutshell. There are lots of principles that explain the healing found in chiropractic, but we’re going to narrow it down to 4 points.
- Your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. Your body can heal, regulate and maintain itself. This happens all the time and you never have to think about it. Like right now you’re reading this post and your heart is beating, your lungs are breathing and your digestive system is digesting the last thing that you ate and you never had to think about any of those things for them to happen.
- There’s one part of the body that controls everything. What’s that? If you answered “the nervous system” then you’re correct because the brain sends messages down the spinal cord out to all the nerves to every part of your body and if that pathway is clear, then your body has the ability to function really well.
- But different things can happen that will affect your nervous system’s ability to function. There are 24 vertebrae in the spine that have nerve roots that travel out from in between. If you place too much pressure on those nerves, then those nweves won’t function very well. It take only the weight of a dime to decrease nerve function by 60%. (see reference below) You must make sure that there is no undue pressure on your nerve roots and when you’re pregnant chiropractor Dr. Emil Tompkins is going to help you relieve the pressure on your nervous system.
- As a Chiropractor, it’s my job to find those areas of the nervous system where there is imbalance. Then, with gentle chiropractic adjustments, move the spine back into a normal position. This will release the pressure off the nerve roots so that the nervous system functions better. When that imbalance is corrected, you will notice that the pressure on the nerves is relieved, you’ll feel better, your body works better and you’ll be healthier because of it.
When you’re pregnant Chiropractor Dr. Emil Tompkins DACCP has developed a program that will help you to achieve a pregnancy without pain. He’s developed the PREP system for pregnancy pain relief. This is a 4 part system for pain relief during pregnancy. This system addresses natural ways to relieve the pain you’re experiencing during pregnancy. Posture, Rest, Exercise, Power, are the methods we’ll address to improve the pain. It will also improve your pregnancy and your health.
Webster technique for intrauterine constraint:
In the pregnant chiropractor program, Dr. Emil Tompkins uses the webster technique to provide very gentle adjustments that will help your pelvis to become and remain balanced. Allowing the uterus to sit in a position of little stress, allowing the baby to have the most room to survive and grow. Pelvic imbalance can affect you when you’re pregnant. Chiropractor Dr. EMil Tompkins will correct that pelvic imbalance so that you can feel better and be healthier.
In our office, we see moms during every stage of their pregnancy. During early stages of pregnancy, we will identify spinal and nervous system imbalances that are causing the pain in your body. We will determine if you are experiencing ligament instability due to relaxin production. And we’ll understand clearly how your spine is affecting your nervous system. We’ll measure the function of each nerve root that travels along your spinal column so that we are very clear about how your spine is affecting your health.
