A Powerful Way To Address Your Pain During Pregnancy

Chiropractic care can help with pregnancy related pain

Why They Did It

The goal was to outline the chiropractic management of a prenatal patient experiencing lumbopelvic pain.

How They Did It

  • The paper is a simple case report.
  • The patient was 35 years old and suffered from moderate to severe lumbopelvic pain directly related to her pregnancy.
  • The patient also suffered associated leg pain.
  • The patient was limited in her ability to walk and sit.
  • Her complaint, through an exam, was determined to be brought on by dysfunction of the left sacroiliac joint with associated back and leg pain.
  • Chiropractic manipulations were used to treat the condition as well as soft tissue therapy, postural correction, and exercise.
  • The patient has thirteen appointments over a period of 6 weeks.
  • She visited with her OBGYN simultaneously and weekly.

What They Found

  • The patient’s lumbopelvic complaint improved significantly from a 7 to a 2 using the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS).
  • In addition, activities of daily living were much improved (walking, sitting, etc..).

Wrap It Up

Significant improvement was seen in this case study through the use of Chiropractic, manual therapy, and exercise.

Just another reason to call a chiropractor TODAY!

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!
