  Title Chiropractic care for postpartum pelvic girdle pain and low back pain: A case report
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2011 Dec;12(2):910-914
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Background: It has been documented that between 50% to 80% of pregnant women suffer from low back pain.  While pregnancy-related girdle pain may be considered a "normal" part of pregnancy, it does not mean that there are no options for the patient, both during and after pregnancy, to help alleviate any discomfort.

Objective: This case describes the chiropractic care of a postpartum woman with pelvic girdle/low back pain.

Clinical Features: A 33-year-old, 3-month postpartum female presented for chiropractic care to help resolve her pelvic girdle/low back pain which she had suffered from since the birth of her daughter.  She experienced pain in the left hip daily which was aggravated by bathing and lifting her daughter.

Intervention: A thorough physical and neurological examination was performed.  Chiropractic adjustments consisting of Thompson, Activator, and Diversified techniques, along with myofascial release of both round ligaments, were given.

Outcome: Complete resolution of her pelvic girdle/low back pain.

Conclusion: There have been many risk factors documented for the cause of pregnancy-related pelvic girdle or low back pain, and a number of quality of life consequences as a result.  This paper illustrates the case of a patient who experienced resolution of her discomfort while under chiropractic care.
