Has anyone had a chiropractor work on them during third trimester?

I am feeling more then the usual pregnancy backaches... it's likely stemming from a back fall 3 1/2 yr ago. No bones were broken but did resulted in bad contusions. Any thoughts on whether I should start seeing a chiropractor at this point will be appreciated!

  • I was last at he chiro at 29 weeks. It is safe provided they modify their treatments for pregnancy. Although at this point (31 weeks with twins) I probably won't go again even though my back pain is ridiculous b/c the relief doesn't really last all that long right now!

  • Yes I did through the whole entire pregnancy as well as right after. I also had my newborn adjusted as well...

  • I didn't even start seeing my chiro until about a month ago. I'm 39 weeks today, and I see her twice a week. I wish I would have started going sooner...but oh well. I would highly recommend seeing someone, it helps a lot! Good luck!
