Pregnancy is definitely one of the biggest events of your lifetime and brings you and your loved one lots of joys. I still remember when I held my baby in my arms for the first time, and it brings tears to my eyes whenever I think about it. However, being pregnant is not always fun. As your belly gets bigger, it comes with more pain and takes away your energy.

An articled published in 2014 recruited 115 pregnant patients with low back or pelvic pain (they did not receive chiropractic care in the previous 3 months.) They were given chiropractic care, and the data was collected at 1 week, one month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after the first treatment to evaluate the effectiveness of the care. The result was amazing. 52% of patients improved at 1 week, 70% at 1 month, 85% at 3 months, 90% at 6 months and 88% at 1 year. There were significant reduction in pain scale and improvement in Quality of Life (QOL.)
