A lovely chiropractor in Beverly Hills agreed to meet with me to discuss issues I have been having with my second pregnancy. My first child was a delightful experience. I experience no morning sickness, little weight gain, and very little discomfort. In fact, all of my friends marveled at how lucky I had it with the first child. Most people couldn’t even tell I was pregnant until very late into the pregnancy. With that experience, I expected the second child to be a piece of cake. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I had all the problems associated with pregnancy and then some.
Aside from the constant morning sickness, which really wore me down, I gained an enormous amount of weight. I’m not going to get into actual figures, but it was a lot of weight gain and it came on very fast. I think it was the fact that weight came on so rapidly that I started experiencing excruciating back and hip pain. I alternated between sitting and lying down because I could never get into a comfortable position due to the pain. I knew I needed to see someone who could provide some sort of relief.
I went to this particular chiropractor because one of her specialities is pregnancy spinal care. I didn’t expect a miracle cure, and I didn’t think one was even possible, but I hoped for at least some relief. That is exactly what I got. Through several gentle and careful movements and techniques, the chiropractor greatly reduced the pressure on my spine and hips. I knew right away it was working because just sitting in the office no longer hurt as much. I’ll have to continue to come in for more adjustments as the pregnancy progresses, but I’m quite happy with the treatment so far.
