Pregnancy & Chiropractic Care

"HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC CARE BENEFIT PREGNANT WOMEN?"

Chiropractic care — particularly, maintaining your spinal column, discs, related nerves and bone geometry — can play a vital role in fertility and pregnancy wellness. Adjusting misaligned joints of the body, especially of the spine, reduces spinal nerve stress and therefore promotes health throughout the body.

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development.

All of Duke Chiropractic’s doctors are educated and trained to treat pregnant women. Our own Dr. Deepa Gulrajani specializes in prenatal and postnatal care and is a specialist in pregnancy wellness. She is Webster Certified, trained to work specifically with pelvic balance in pregnancy.

Dr. Gulrajani demonstrates kinesiotaping as a means to improve posture.

HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN EASE PREGNANCY

At Duke Chiropractic, the potential benefits of our pregnancy programs include:

  • Facilitating pelvic alignment
  • Reducing and eliminating sciatica
  • Maintaining a healthy pregnancy
  • Controlling nausea
  • Relieving back, neck or joint pain
Dr. Duke explains Duke Chiropractic's physicians' expertise in Active Release Technique (ART).

ASK YOUR OBSTETRICIAN IF CHIROPRACTIC CARE IS RIGHT FOR YOU

As more women are seeking the benefits of chiropractic care throughout pregnancy, more health care providers are seeking trained doctors of chiropractic in their communities to whom they can refer their pregnant patients.

Discuss these options with your health care provider. If he or she is not yet familiar with chiropractic care in pregnancy, ask him or her to find out more about its many benefits by contacting us at 212-481-0066.
