Back pain and pregnancy; chiropractic offers relief without drugs says current research
Pregnancy can be wonderful experience, but for many women, it can also be painful. More obstetricians are finding out that their patients back pain is relived safely and without medication by chiropractors. Many Obstetricians will protect their pregnant patients from things they consider harmful, such as medications and alcohol, and with few tools to offer their patients relief, they are finding a good chiropractor can be a great way to safely offer their patients the relief they want.
Part of the problem is that a woman will put on a number of pounds, and their ligaments become looser as their pregnancy progresses due to the hormones. Another problem is body style. If you are built asymmetrically, you are prone to back problems and as you gain weight and as your body and weight bearing changes the way you stand, back pain is often the result, which is perhaps why chiropractors are becoming the choice for pregnant women.

Chiropractic Cuts Back Pain for 85% of Pregnant Women
Many pregnant women do not seek medical attention for their back pain because they believe it’s just a “normal” part of pregnancy. It’s important to know that dealing with grueling pain that prevents you from accomplishing day-to-day tasks is anything but normal, even when you’re pregnant.
One common barrier to women seeking care for their back pain is a reluctance to take too many medications while pregnant. Fortunately, there are many drug-free, non-invasive options for relieving pelvic and back pain during pregnancy and beyond. A recent study confirms that chiropractic care can offer pregnant women safe and effective relief of pelvic and back pain.
