Can Chiropractic help with back pain during pregnancy? 

And is it safe?

A recent study says YES! 

The objective of the research was to evaluate the chiropractic management of a patient with pregnancy-related lumbopelvic pain.

"CLINICAL FEATURES:    A pregnant 35-year-old woman experienced insidious moderate to severe pregnancy-related lumbopelvic pain and leg pain at 32 weeks' gestation. Pain limited her endurance capacity for walking and sitting. Clinical testing revealed a left sacroiliac joint functional disturbance and myofascial trigger points reproducing back and leg pain.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME:    A diagnosis of pregnancy-related low back pain and pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain was made. The patient was treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation [gentle adjustments appropriate for a pregnant patient], soft tissue therapy, exercises, and ergonomic advice in 13 visits over 6 weeks. She consulted her obstetrician for her weekly obstetric visits. At the end of treatment, her low back pain reduced from 7 to 2 on a 0-10 numeric pain scale rating. [THAT IS AMAZING!] Functional activities reported such as walking, sitting, and traveling comfortably in a car had improved.

CONCLUSION:    This patient with pregnancy-related lumbopelvic pain improved in pain and function after chiropractic treatment and usual obstetric management."
