Consult Your Chiropractor During Pregnancy
According to a study at Spine Universe, almost 80% of pregnant women experience some type of back pain. There are a number of treatments that are available and of course pain remedies that are present during the labor and birth of the baby too. With pregnancy lasting nine months, there are other ways to make pregnancy comfortable for both the mother and the unborn baby. A 1991 study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, said that 84% of women who received chiropractic care experienced a decrease in back pain during their pregnancy. It was also reported that women who continued to have chiropractic care and performed exercises reported a less painful childbirth as well. In other research by Spine Universe, there are a variety of types of back pain and other pains that women experience in their pregnancies. 42% experience pain in the posterior superior iliac spine , 54% experience pain in the groin areas, 54% in the coccyx, and 33% in the pubic symphysis. In 80% of pregnancies, most of the back pain will be localized during a woman's pregnancy. But by the third semester, at least 50% of women experience back pain. Other recommended ways to sooth a woman's pain during pregnancy include activities such as sleeping on your side, keeping good posture, eating and exercising properly, and using tools like a pregnancy pillow, or support belt. By adding chiropractic care to a woman's medical care during pregnancy, performing proper exercising routines, and staying fit, it is possible to reduce back pain experienced during pregnancy.

Dr. Zach's Comments:
- Chiropractic Care during pregnancy has helped thousands of women in the US and around the world experience less pain, more activity, faster deliveries, and less complications. Truly, a chiropractic exam should be mandatory for all expectant mothers, and not only to relieve or prevent back pain.
- Chiropractic is based on the premise that YOUR BODY WAS DESIGNED FOR 100% OUTSTANDING HEALTH. Your nervous system controls and coordinated that state of health and it will do so perfectly if nothing interferes with it. Misalignment and Injury to your spine can interfere with nerve system function and cause you to migrate away from a truly healthy state. Chiropractic Care can correct those misalignments and injuries and restore normal nerve system function and therefore your health.
- Not only that, but a women's back and pelvis go through some serious changes during pregnancy in order to prepare her for the delivery of the child. The pelvis must expand a great deal to allow baby to enter our world, and misalignments or injuries to the spine can prevent that pelvic expansion. No pelvic expansion equals difficult delivery and possible intervention.
- What husband, mother, or father wouldn't want to make his wife or daughter's pregnancy as pain free, risk free, and worry free as possible and at the same time assuring a faster, safer delivery of baby at the same time. Chiropractic and pregnancy just make sense!
