In the December 2010 Issue of JCCP (Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics)a study revealed that 1/3 of Women have chiropractic treatment during thier pregnancy.
The study found that 90% of these patients present with pelvic pain and about 30% picked their chiropractor as the first choice for treatment. Some other common symptoms are lower back pain, radicular pain (pain radiating to legs), mid-back pain, and infertility issues.
Speaking of pregnancy and the chiropractor; I have a friend who practices in Pennsylvania who recently helped one of his patients with her pregnancy. He let me know that this patient of his mentioned that she was trying to get pregnant for a long time, but was unsuccessful. A short time after getting her pelvis and lower back adjusted she got pregnant. He told me it could have been a multitude of factors, and the chiropractic adjustments may not have done anything for the pregnancy but they definitely helped fix her posture and relieve back pain. However, the fact of the matter is, she feels it was critical in her getting pregnant. And sometimes you can’t doubt a mother’s instinct!
