Pregnant with low back pain. Heard there’s a good chiropractor in town. Is that safe?

In brief: It depends

If you are pregnant, you should avoid traditional chiro adjustments but chiropractors also use a small instrument to perform adjustments while you rest comfortably on your side or back.

In brief: Drive by

If you have low back pain, and are pregnant, you should drive by the chiropractor office on your way to your ob's office who can best help you with this issue.
Chiropractors have nothing to offer pregnant women and can do dangerous things.

In brief: Safe, and may help

Many of my pregnant patients see a chiropractor. They generally report some relief of their muscular problems.
Other options include seeing an osteopathic physician who practices manipulation or a massage therapist.
