Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had a difficult time. I've always had trouble with my back, and the weight gain threw me off balance and made me experience a lot of pain. I was so uncomfortable all of the time that I couldn't even get through a day of work. I finally decided to go see a chiropractor that a coworker recommended. I was very nervous -- I'd heard about having your back cracked, and it sounded scary to me. The chiropractor did manipulate my back, but he was very gentle, and it didn't hurt at all. In fact, it helped. So did the massage table in his office. Without that care, I don't know how I would have gotten through the rest of the pregnancy. I decided to start a blog to help other women learn how chiropractic care can help them through a difficult pregnancy.

Basic Answers for Potential Acupuncture Patients

Acupuncture is a popular and effective treatment that many people will want to undergo. While acupuncture is an extremely old form of treatment, it is not well understood. This can be due to a lack of experience with acupuncture sessions as well as misinformation that has been popularized by movies and television.

Is Acupuncture Only Used for Chronic Pain?

There are many patients that might utilize acupuncture treatments in order to help them with managing chronic pain. This can lead to some patients thinking that this may be the only problem that acupuncture can be used to treat. However, there are a wide variety of issues that people will often use acupuncture to attempt to treat. For example, acupuncture can often be used to help address stress and sleep issues. Meeting with an acupuncture professional will allow you to discuss your problem and goals so that they can advise you as to whether acupuncture will be able to provide effective treatment for your particular situation.

Will Acupuncture Cause Considerable Pain or Discomfort?

Due to the fact that acupuncture utilizes long needles, patients will often be hesitant about utilizing these treatments due to assuming that the procedure will be fairly painful to undergo. However, a professional that is experienced in giving acupuncture sessions will be able to avoid the majority of the discomfort that could arise from this treatment. In fact, most patients will only experience the sensation of mild pressure. If any pain is experienced during the acupuncture treatment, the technician administering the treatment should be notified so that they can adjust their technique so as to be able to complete the acupuncture session without causing further pain.

Are the Effects of Acupuncture Immediate?

The initial effects of acupuncture treatments will often start to take effect almost immediately after the treatment. However, it is also common for these initial benefits to be fairly short-lived when you first start your acupuncture treatments, and patients should not become discouraged if they experience this relapse. However, it can be normal, and the effects should gradually start to last longer. Most patients will have to undergo numerous treatments to achieve long-term results. These sessions will usually be scheduled for once or twice a week. A typical acupuncture session will take around an hour to complete, and this can make it easy to fit these sessions into your schedule. At the start of each session, the professional administering it will ask you about changes in your condition, as this can impact their treatment techniques and overall approach.
