A Helpful Way To Explore Chiropractic For Pregnancy Pains

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Why They Did It

There have been several studies showing the efficacy of chiropractic treatment for low back pain. However, there have been none exploring the experience itself. The authors of this paper wanted to try to fill that hole in the chiropractic research literature.

How They Did It

  • This was a qualitative study. This paper used semi-structured question and answer sessions with the subjects.
  • The patients needed to be in their second or third trimester and be suffering from pregnancy-induced low back pain to qualify for inclusion in the study.
  • The interviews were conducted with the patients as well as the chiropractors involved.
  • The questions had to do with topics such as what their experience was during treatment, etc..
  • The interviews were reviewed and analyzed independently.

What They Found

From the interviews, five themes were noticed. The themes were as follows:

  • Treatment & Effectiveness
  • Chiropractor-Patient Communication
  • Pregnant Patient Presentation and the Chiropractic Approach to Pregnancy Care
  • Safety Considerations
  • Self-Care

Wrap It Up

“Chiropractors approach pregnant patients with low back pain from a patient-centered standpoint, and the pregnant patients interviewed in this study who sought chiropractic care appeared to find this approach helpful for managing their back pain symptoms.”

Research and clinical experience shows that, in about 80%-90% of headaches, neck, and back pain, in comparison to the traditional medical model, patients get good or excellent results with Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is safe, more cost-effective, it decreases your chances of having surgery, and it reduces your chances of becoming disabled. We do this conservatively and non-surgically. In addition, we can do it with minimal time requirements and minimal hassle on the part of the patient. And, if the patient develops a “preventative” mindset going forward from initial recovery, we can likely keep it that way while raising the general, overall level of health!
