Since we do so much fertility acupuncture, we often see many women return with pregnancy related back pain and asking if we can treat them. They want to know 1. Is it safe? 2. Will it help?
Rest assured, it is VERY SAFE for both mom and baby. Soothing soft tissue therapy applied to the tight and tender lower back muscles along with gentle adjusting to the surrounding joints often provides a great deal of relief. According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (one of the more reputable journals in our field), 84% of women who receive spinal manipulative therapy during pregnancy noted it relieved their back pain. We would agree with this number in our 20 years of practicing in Sioux Falls.
