I had severe pelvic pain in my second pregnancy and my OB suggested seeing a chiro. I was a total skeptic but it was the best thing I did, the pain resolved after two visits. The guy I saw was highly qualified, had done a doctorate and specialised in pregnancy with well documented results.

We've been using chiropractic for years here. I've used it through 3 pregnancies with SPD and it was great. My Chiro managed it very well and it was so relieving. I also used to suffer from debilitating headaches, which are under control now thanks to my Chiro.

I see a chiro monthly. This is my 2nd pregnancy seeing one and I love it. Mine is a qualified kinesiologist as well so works on releasing tension as well.

I'm a huge advocate for chiro.
I was a chronic migraine sufferer! Following chiro treatment - no more migraines!
Treated all through my twin pregnancy and doubt I would have made it to 35 weeks and birthed my boys naturally with out my bi -weekly chiro adjustments.
Some people disagree but I also take the boys (5 months) for weekly adjustments. T2 has a genetic condition and I believe he would need a lot more "medical" treatment without chiro!
As PP mentioned it's all about finding the right one!

Yes, I'm a huge chiro advocate - but do your research and ask around, my chiro uses an activator rather than forcing manual manipulation and has quals in neuro, kinesiology, women's health and some natural therapies. My family has been seeing her for over 10 years.
Like with any practitioner - word of mouth is best

I've been seeing chiros for years. It wasn't until a I stumbled upon a new guy in the area who is bupa preferred that I finally got a decent one. He's not just a crack and see you next time , he's thorough and goes through everything . If it doesn't feel right keep trying and looking

I have chronic back problems & have for 15 years. I fell pregnant & have been worried about my back so decided to go back to the chiro more for management. AMAZING!!! He doesn't promise the world like a lot of professionals do ("ah yes ill fix all ur problems") he is safe & would defiantly recommend one. Goodluck

I used to see a chiro but then I switched to a physio which was better, and then I started seeing a remedial massage therapist - she's the best of them all!
I get more relief in one session than I used to in 6 at physio, or months of chiro treatment. She works with an osteopath and also specializes in pregnancy massage, so she's going to be my best friend over the next 6 months.
Really you've just got to try them out to see what works best for you. Don't be afraid to go somewhere else if you try out someone and they don't quite fit.
