RESEARCH: New Findings For Manipulative Therapy In Pregnancy.

Thursday, April 9th, 2015
It has been my experience that many expectant mothers are unaware that visiting the chiropractor while going through this life and body-changing experience can make it a little more comfortable throughout.  

All chiropractors differ in approach but, in my office, I prefer to wait to work with expecting mothers until after the 12 week period. That is not to say that it is dangerous prior to that point. However, 12 weeks of pregnancy is my personal comfort zone. 

Here’s a paper from this year (2015) highlighting this fact. 


To test the effectiveness of manipulative techniques during pregnancy for the treatment of back and pelvic pain. 


It was based on a  review of available literature through a MEDLINE and a Cochrane Library search in January of 2014
They looked for relevant reports, randomized controlled trials (research gold standard), and case studies.
Each source was verified and analyzed.


Manipulative protocols appear effective and safe in pregnant women for low back and pelvic pain.

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 your general, overall level of health!

We have seen time and time again the amazing effectiveness of chiropractic for issues such as neck out of alignment, hips out of alignment, back alignment, lower back alignment hip out of alignment, back out of alignment, etc… We have just about seen it all.

Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me your thoughts. I’d love to hear what you think.

And….SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!   We cannot make a difference without your help.

Till next time……
