Pregnancy and Chiropractic: A Patient’s Testimonial
Sharp pains, piercing spasms, and the feeling that one wrong move would leave me bedridden for weeks. This was the kind of back pain I experienced as I entered the second trimester of my pregnancy. I was concerned for my and the baby’s well-being. My yoga instructor recommended chiropractic care. She said since I was pregnant I should go to Dr. Stern; he is the best.
Now I must admit, having never received chiropractic care, I was a little skeptical, especially since I was pregnant. After my first consultation with Dr. Stern my skepticism disappeared. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does, I completely trusted him with my unborn baby and myself. It turns out that the pain I was experiencing was due to subluxations that I had even before I was pregnant. Dr. Stern got me on an intensive care program right away and not only did the pain slowly begin to diminish, but I felt better as a whole person: mentally, physically, and emotionally. It was comforting to know also that by getting adjusted regularly during my pregnancy it made more room in the womb for the baby to grow properly. It was a wonderful feeling to know that I had hope of enjoying the rest of my pregnancy.
I recommend chiropractic care to all people, pregnant and nonpregnant. It is essential for total wellness. Today my husband and I have a beautiful and healthy baby girl.
