Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Patients
As a Baltimore Chiropractor that spends the majority of my time treating, blogging, and thinking about Baltimore auto accident injuries, I have noticed a trend in my practice. More and more patients, particularly women, are asking about whether or not I provide chiropractic care for pregnant mother's or for their children. Truth be told, although Chiropractic as a profession has been treating pregnant women and young children since inception, I honestly have not had many of these patients. As I enter my fourth year in practice in Baltimore some of my original patients have started to get engaged, get married, become pregnant, and have children of their own. I suppose I should not be surprised by this but it is amazing to see how their lives change around me. It made me realize that in order to be of better service to my community that I need to expand my offerings to be able to better help those in need.
For many current patients this will come as no surprise, but if you have not been in the office in some time this may be news to you. Dr. Gulitz expanded his professional staff in August to include another Chiropractor. Dr. Erica Wise D.C. joined Mid-Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic in August of 2015. She brings a very complimentary set of skills to the practice. She previously worked at Living Wellness Chiropractic in Baltimore, where she treated more pregnant and wellness type patients. She has over three years experience in this arena and she is able to bring this skill set to the table (pun intended).
Dr. Wise enjoys treating pregnant mothers through all phases of their pregnancy. She feels that throughout the nine month process she can help expecting mother's to naturally and safely deal with aches and pains that are expected as they gain weight during their pregnancy. In fact, she recently helped the office aquire a new "pregnancy pillow" that allows for expectant mothers to lay face down comfortably and to not put undue pressure on their abdomens as they enlarge. A picture of the pregnancy pillow can be seen here. While she primarily focuses on treating pain in pregnant women, some women who do not have pain also present for care, with the hope and expectation that proper biomechanics and spinal motion can lead to an easier delivery.
So if you are pregnant and have developed neck and back pain as a result of your pregnancy and require chiropractic care for pregnancy in Baltimore, please do not hesitate to contact Mid-Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic at (443) 842-5500. We would be happy to help!
