September 9, 2012 — Two American Chiropractic Association (ACA) members recently contributed to articles about the services provided by doctors of chiropractic during pregnancy.
Melissa A. Bartoszewski, DC, wrote an article on the subject for The Natural News Network in which she talked about the drug-free relief for low-back pain that chiropractic care provides.
Robert Bergeron, DC, appeared on his local CBS affiliate, KXII-TV, where he mentioned that chiropractic can reduce labor time by five to nine hours. “You don’t want to take medication while you’re pregnant, obviously,” said Bergeron. “So we treat a lot of women for problems with their lower back all the way up to term. It’s very, very safe and it actually helps reduce problems with labor and delivery because the pelvis is kept mobile so it can expand for the birth of the baby.”
