Gentle Chiropractic Adjustments
Many occasions call for gentle chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Maxine Helman provides complementary, non-invasive, and non-addictive treatments for musculoskeletal pain to patients in the Scarsdale area, specializing in perinatal care.
Dr. Helman is trained and certified in the Webster Technique. It is the use of gentle chiropractic adjustments to help pregnant women to have a more comfortable pregnancy and an easier birth experience. This method addresses both the additional stress that carrying a baby puts on the back and the pelvis, and also helps the pelvis to be in the correct position to facilitate birth. The concentration of this technique is the pelvis, and it can help to allow the baby to have the room they need.
While pregnancy massage is not an adjustment, it is a complementary therapy that helps to make the adjustments work more effectively. Gentle pregnancy massage helps the body to relax and that relieves the pressure that is caused to the back and the pelvis by the change in the center of balance that results from the extra weight of the baby on the front of the mother's body.
Activator methods are instrument-assisted chiropractic adjustments. The instrument applies a very quick gentle tap to the area being adjusted. It can be spring-loaded or electronically controlled. The benefit is the gentleness of the thrust and the speed. It is so quick that the muscles don't have time to tense up in anticipation. It is FDA-approved and easy to control.
Graston technique is a technique that treats soft tissue injuries with a variety of tools. These help to break down scar tissue, increase circulation and promote faster healing.
