The fact that the woman’s body changes so tremendously during pregnancy, on the outside and the inside is truly an understatement. Some of the events that occur are welcomed and expected, but some changes are far from desirable and are completely unwanted. A few of these include; increased pressure on the discs and soft tissues of the spine leading to nagging pain in the back or down the legs, postural changes to counter balance the effects of a growing midsection resulting in burning tense muscles around the pelvis, hot flashes associated with hormone spikes, the many mood swings that change from moment to moment, various food cravings on any given day, swollen feet for what seems to be no apparent reason at all, night sweats and even night chills, stress and headaches, roller coaster energy levels, unexplained numbness and tingling, and many more. However, in the end, every mother knows that all of the trials and tribulations are worth it in that magical moment when the new little life and bundle of joy is welcomed into her world and her awaiting arms. Fortunately, at Whole Family Chiropractic, we are equipped with a well-known and nationally recognized advanced certified doctor specifically trained to assist new mothers in having the best experience possible with the lowest amount of complications when it comes to their pregnancy and labor, her name is ‘Dr. Jessica’.
Dr. Jessica Dachowski is the only doctor in the state of Alaska who has achieved simultaneous certifications in a Diplomate in Pediatrics and Pregnancy, and Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) advanced spinal rehabilitation methods. If a healthy pregnancy is your goal, then she would assist in fulfilling your need as a quality pre-natal resource to help you to achieve optimal health and healing during this critical time of growth and development. With two young children of her own that she was able to carry to term and birth naturally in her home without complications, she understands what struggles a pregnant mother is up against. She also understands how being under regular quality chiropractic care during the process can result in a higher likelihood of achieving the outcome that you truly want. She knows firsthand the joy of experiencing the first kick, the fun of the selfies showing the growing ‘baby bump’, and even the nervousness as the big day approaches. Also, she recognizes that it is not uncommon for the mother’s body to feel wholly commandeered during the course of the pregnancy and she can empathize with new mothers and can connect with their struggles as well as their achievements in unique ways that involve a caring reassurance and knowledgeable, trustworthy guidance. She is quick to help the mothers receiving care from her to understand how they can make their body stronger and more prepared for the birth of their baby. That said, she has also participated in difficult pregnancies to assist various mothers when the pregnancy has involved known and even unforeseen complications such as abnormal baby presentations, invasive delivery methods, unusually long delivery times, and much more.
At Whole Family Chiropractic, Dr. Jessica has set a new standard of excellence in the community when it comes to caring for pregnant mothers, and as a result, our clinic thoroughly understands the needs of the ever-changing body of a new mother. We have developed specific protocols and interventions that will ensure that all body systems are functioning correctly at their highest capacity especially the musculoskeletal system, reproductive system and most importantly, the nervous system. If you are pregnant and your body structure or posture has shifted from a normal and healthy position, then nerve interference can result and may create unwanted complications during pregnancy and the birth process. In our office, we examine the mother for postural and spinal subluxations. These subluxations are deviations in the individual segments of the spine or shifts of whole body regions that can lead to nerve stress, inflammation, pain, organ dysfunction and a weaker, unhealthier body.
Through an individualized protocol of care involving specific spinal adjustments, postural exercises, and nutritional support our pre-natal care plans are focused on correcting and improving these spinal subluxations. In doing so, our patients can experience reduced complications, less pregnancy-related pain and discomfort, shorter delivery times, a decreased likelihood of experiencing premature contractions and back labor, and even a reduced need for any dangerous or toxic medications. At the same time, this promotes a healthy sense of well-being through the ability to enjoy more intimate bonding time with your baby.
Our team at Whole Family Chiropractic will help you to get your spinal misalignments corrected, take pressure off of your delicate nerves, and allow your body to be strong and healthy to maximize the pregnancy and birth experience for you and your family. The results we can witness in the many Wonder Women who seek care in our office on a daily basis are often nothing less than phenomenal and life-changing.
