Chiropractic care during Pregnancy

Rhode Island Prenatal Chiropractic Clinic - Chiropractor Services for pregnant women and new mothers

Treating Discomfort During Pregnancy

Prenatal chiropractic care is well known for its benefits to pregnancy, delivery related back pain, and other complications. Misalignment of the spine can occur in particular during pregnancy due to increased pressure on the pelvis, protruding abdomen and enhanced spinal curvature, and posture related issues. Chiropractors are all trained in caring for pregnant women. Some practitioners, however, obtain special training and certifications in advance training procedures for pregnancy and childbirth.

Dr. Stephen Estner is a staff physician at Rhode Island Women and Infants Hospital and often sees patients at the Women’s Primary Care Clinic. He has undergone special training in order to provide prenatal chiropractic care for pregnant women.

Regular prenatal chiropractic treatments can eliminate or reduce pelvic and spinal misalignment which can cause a decrease in the amount of room the fetus has for development and can make pre-delivery positioning difficult. Keeping the spine in optimum health, as the connector for the nervous system, helps to maintain the efficiency of all bodily functions.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant. Investing in the fertility and pregnancy wellness of women who are pregnant or trying to conceive is a routine treatment for most chiropractors.

Some chiropractors take a specific interest in prenatal and peri-natal care and seek additional training. Below represents designations of chiropractors who have taken advanced steps in working with infertility and pregnancy wellness.

Chiropractors that have been trained to work with pregnant women may use tables that adjust for a pregnant woman's body, and they will use techniques that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen.

A chiropractor who is versed in the needs of women who are pregnant will also provide you with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy and compliment any adjustments made to your spine.

Why should I have prenatal chiropractic care?

During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joint:

  • Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
  • Pelvic changes
  • Postural adaptations

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.

The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
