Low back pain is one of the most common symptoms during pregnancy, so it makes sense that these women would seek relief. Chiropractic has been shown to be safe and provide effective low back pain relief during pregnancy. In a recent study, over half of the pregnant women who participated experienced relief from their low back pain in the first week. As the study continued, as many as 90% of the participants had improved. These results were determined through both patient reporting of pain levels as well as objective functional analysis. This means real relief and better function through chiropractic.
For pregnant women suffering from low back and pelvic pain, a study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology took pregnant women with low back pain and pelvic pain and divided them into two groups. One group was treated by traditional medicine while the other group continued with their OB/GYN but were also treated with chiropractic. It was found that chiropractic was more beneficial in the treatment of low back and pelvic pain in pregnancy than the traditional medical approach alone.
For specialized care, chiropractors who are certified in Webster Technique have been trained to treat pregnant women. The treatment is gentle and specific to the unique needs of pregnancy. Webster certified chiropractors treat the aching muscles and joint dysfunctions that are often associated with pregnancy to relieve pain.
