Why is chiropractic care so important during pregnancy?
A preliminary study on 34 pregnant women found that Logan Basic technique can decrease labor time and pain. Of the 34 women 17 were first time mothers and the average time for delivery was 10 hours (compared to a 24-hour average) and second/third time mothers dropped to 4 hours. The research also showed that only 3 births were delivered by C section and only 3 received an episiotomy. Chiropractic can decrease labor time and pain!
A recent study in the American journal of obstetrics found that women under chiropractic care showed a significant decrease in back pain during pregnancy. The chiropractic group showed significant improvement over the second group of OB/GYN only care. In fact it was noted that the group under OB/GYN care only showed no measurable decrease in back pain at all.
