Chiropractic & Pregnancy

BIHC Belleville - Chiropractic & Pregnancy

Dr. Sorichetti specializes in pre and post-natal care, treating women suffering from posterior pelvic pain, pelvic stability issues, pelvic floor dysfunction, round ligament pain, and diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation).

Hormonal changes during pregnancy cause loosening of ligaments (laxity) leading to unstable joints. Dr. Sorichetti’s treatment approach focuses on correcting faulty biomechanics and restoring spinal stability via rehabilitation exercise prescription. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help to ensure the pelvis is in proper alignment and that ligament tension is balanced within the pelvis. This is crucial in reducing strain and trauma to the pelvis and pelvic floor during childbirth.

Dr. Sorichetti is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is a certified Webster Technique practitioner. She is passionate about helping her postnatal patients restore and retain their core musculature after birth in order to prevent low back pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.
