Chiropractic adjustment has long been respected as a beneficial natural treatment for musculoskeletal problems. Particularly when combined with other holistic healing treatments, such as massage or physical therapy, chiropractic has proven effective in combating a wide variety of ailments, from anxiety to digestive distress to soft tissue injury.
No matter what the stage of life, patients benefit from this natural, drug free, surgery free therapy. But is it safe to have chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Pregnancy chiropractic can be considered a safe and effective way to manage the musculoskeletal complaints of pregnancy.
Because 50% of women experience back pain during pregnancy, and 50-75% suffer back pain during labor, the conjecture might be drawn that most pregnant women seek chiropractic evaluation and adjustment.
Surprisingly only 20-40% of women seek any sort of treatment for back pain during pregnancy, with massage and leading the list of alternative treatments, and chiropractic coming in third place. Among women who sought pregnancy chiropractic, 72% reported significant relief, which suggests a high level of efficacy. In fact, there is evidence to suggest that chiropractic care during pregnancy can actually ease the stress of labor, resulting in improved outcomes.
