23 Mar Chiropractic And Pregnancy
Recently, there has been increased attention given to the harmful effects of acetaminophen for women during pregnancy. In a report published in the current issue of JAMA Pediatrics, researchers from the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health show that taking acetaminophen during pregnancy is associated with a higher risk of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder among children.
Jeff Chap MD, director of maternal fetal medicine at Cleveland Clinic is quoted, “We really should start looking at non-pharmacological ways to deal with pain.”
Chiropractic provides a conservative alternative to pain relief and wellness for women during pregnancy. For years, Dr. Courtney Centrelli has been helping pregnant women experience a pain-free and more comfortable pregnancy. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is certified in Webster Technique. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral/pelvic subluxation and/or SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved (https://icpa4kids.com/seminars/webster_technique.htm). She has received a certification from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice’s Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P.). Dr. Centrelli is continually attending seminars and postgraduate programs to keep up to date on the latest advances in health care.
