Chiropractic Care For Pregnancy

The Fort Collins Chiropractors at Elevate Chiropractic want you to know the positive impact on your health that chiropractic can bring. Take a look at what the latest research shows about the benefits of ongoing chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Benefits for Your Health

Did you know that the benefits of chiropractic care extend to a wide range of health concerns? Chiropractic care is most often associated with neck pain, back pain and spinal issues, but a growing list of research studies demonstrate that the services provided by chiropractors are clinically effective, safe and cost effective.

Take a look at recent studies spotlighted below. They show that ongoing chiropractic care can have positive effects on neck pain.

Chiropractic Benefits for Pregnancy

Healthy Pregnancy Following Chiropractic Care in Ovarian Cancer Patient, After 2 Years of Infertility: A Case Report
Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health Chiropractic, Volume 2012

Objective: This case report describes the chiropractic care of a woman with a previous history of ovarian cancer and infertility who successfully conceived.

Clinical Features: A 28 year old woman with a two year history of infertility following ovarian cancer and subsequent laparoscopy.  Patient presented to office seeking improvements to overall health in order to increase chances of fertility.  Patient had previously sought conventional medical treatments for infertility including Clomid and Perganol – both proved to be unsuccessful.  At the time of physical exam patient had a chief complaint of low back pain and infertility.

Intervention and Outcomes: Initial examination including orthopedic, neurologic, radiologic, and chiropractic analysis all performed to determine patient’s need for chiropractic care. At each visit motion and static palpation, visual observation, and shunt stabilization test were performed to detect vertebral subluxation.  Treatment plan and examination protocols consisted of full-spine chiropractic adjustments. 

Conclusion: Patient conceived naturally following her completion of 14 sessions of chiropractic care.  Patient carried a viable pregnancy to full term with continued chiropractic care. Chiropractic care may facilitate an increase in autonomic function and further studies are encouraged to determine the relationship of chiropractic to the restoration of reproductive system function.

Healthy Pregnancy In A Previously Infertile Patient Following D.N.F.T. Chiropractic Care: A Case Report
Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research, Volume 2003

Objective: This case study describes the chiropractic care and progress of a female patient with a history of infertility; examining the relationship between D.N.F.T. specific care and the patient’s clinical improvement and ultimate success in becoming pregnant.

Clinical Features: A 32-year-old female with a history of infertility sought chiropractic care in November of 2001. She had attempted to become pregnant since August 1999, with no success. She had received conventional medical treatment, including detailed fertility testing, artificial insemination, and treatment with the fertility drug Clomid. On October 17, 2001, the patient underwent in vitro fertilization, which failed. She sought chiropractic care three weeks later and an intitial evaluation was performed on November 3, 2001. The case history revealed additional complaints, including endometriosis, low back pain, and frequent headaches. Surface EMG showed significant muscle asymmetry, with a marked elevation of muscle tension on the left side in the area of L3.  Chiropractic Assessment, Intervention and Outcomes: D.N.F.T. chiropractic analysis and correction were performed over the next six weeks and during this time, the patient’s secondary complaints of low back pain and headaches improved dramatically. A re-examination was performed on December 28, 2001. Surface EMG showed a substantial improvement in muscle symmetry, as well as a reduction in the muscle tension previously noted at L3. The patient’s fertility specialists noted that her estrogen levels, endometrial thickness, and cervical mucus levels were all at more favorable levels than at the time of the first in vitro attempt. A second attempt at in vitro fertilization was made on February 17, 2002, and the patient had a positive pregnancy test on March 2, 2002. She remained under chiropractic care and was in her 34th week of pregnancy at the time of this writing.

Conclusion: The human body is designed to be healthy and to reproduce. Impairment of this ability indicates dysfunction on a fundamental level. Subluxations of the spine and the associated nervous system dysfunction can hinder proper function of body systems. This study serves to document the application of chiropractic care and the subsequent response, including restoration of proper reproductive function, in a 32 year old woman previously diagnosed as infertile.

“My son has been seeing Dr. Dan and Dr. Andres for a couple of months now and we have seen a significant shift in his physical well-being, as well as his mental and emotional states. My son is challenged with certain processing disorders…since working with Elevate Chiropractic he has been able to better handle the stimuli of his classroom, as well as bring up his grades and retain information in his short term memory longer. His physical complaints are all but gone too, and I have seen a visible shift in the alignment of his spine. My son LOVES getting his adjustments and is always excited when it is chiro day, lol. The staff is beyond fabulous and you can feel that everyone there is dedicated to the health and happiness of each patient. Everyone knew our names by the second visit and easily remembers the little details of our treatment plan, and lives in general…making us feel invested in, not only as patients, but as people. We never feel rushed and the Doctors do an excellent job of taking their time, answering questions, and following up. Planning on getting my whole family into their wonderful and caring practice. Thanks so much everybody, keep doing what you do!”

“I will admit that I’m a pretty harsh critic, but I could write all day about how amazing Elevate Chiropractic is, and it still would not do them justice. Every single staff member is highly trained and extremely knowledgeable. They have state of the art technology to assist in determining the exact right care tailored for each persons needs. If you are a fan of the chiropractor that’s snaps and cracks your neck and back this probably isn’t the place for you. Because they have the ability to pinpoint problem areas, they are able to use a very gentle yet highly effective methods and tools for adjustments. The first day I went in for a EMERGENCY appointment, I had a misalignment and pinched nerve in my back that was making my whole body seize up, I could barely walk, was falling down while walking, falling down the stairs, I was in bad shape. They were able to get me in very quickly, do x-rays and other tests and a quick super simple but specific adjustment….that night I was able to go out with friends, went to work just fine the next day, I was in shock. These guys know what they are doing and it’s affordable!! They will work with you on payments if you need, they have literally thought of everything. There is still so much to say but I’ll let you see for yourself. They really raised the bar high for any other chiropractors, well done guys!!”

“Wonderful friendly staff, nice office and waiting area. I’ve been to countless chiropractors over the past 15 years or so all over the country and Dr. Dan is definitely one of the most thorough and knowledgeable that I have come across. He is very genuine and takes pride in getting you REAL results, not just a temporary fix. I highly recommend giving Elevate Chiropractic a try!!!”

“Dr. Dan and Dr. Andres are both so incredible at what they do. I feel like a million bucks every time I get adjusted. I feel in much better health than when I started receiving care and my scans back that feeling too. The practice itself is so community-oriented, it’s exceptionally clean, the staff is so friendly, and the overall environment is super welcoming.”

“I’m always blown away by the wonderful care and people who work here!!! I recommend Elevate to Everyone!!! They are so compassionate and knowledgeable about what they do. I always feel better after Dr. Dan “The Man” adjusts my back, and I know I’m in good hands with people who really know what they are doing. I don’t trust my spine and health with just anyone!! Especially with a bun in the oven 😉 I am truly blessed to have found this place!!!”
