Pregnancy and Chiropractic
According to a recent study by The Journal of Manipulative and Physiologic Therapy, 50% of all expectant mothers experience at least one bout of back pain during their pregnancy. Chiropractic care is one of the safest treatments for the reduction of pregnancy related back pain. The treatment tables at Schoeb Chiropractic allow for a full term pregnant patient to lay face down during the evaluation and adjustments to the spine safely and comfortably. According to the same study referenced above, 84% of pregnant patients received pain relief after chiropractic care. Also of note is that first time pregnant patients that receive regular chiropractic treatment throughout their pregnancy have, on average, a 25% reduction of labor time! For those patients who already had a pregnancy and are receiving care for pregnancy 2+, the labor times are reduced by 31%!
