Title Improved health outcomes in a woman experiencing chronic post-partum low back pain [case report]
Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2017 Summer;2017(3):Online access only p 128-132
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the outcomes related to chiropractic in a woman with post-partum back pain.

Clinical Features: A 33-year-old female presented for chiropractic consultation and care with chronic low back pain that began in pregnancy approximately three years prior. History revealed that she had a C-section due to a small pelvic opening. An A-P lumbosacral radiograph demonstrated significant left sacral displacement relative to the median plane.

Intervention and Outcomes: Following the Pierce Results System, the patient was cared for with high velocity low amplitude thrust adjustments assisted with drop table technique. Chiropractic care was administered to the patient over two visits. After one sacral adjustment, comparative radiographic assessment revealed a 72% correction of the sacral subluxation and she had complete relief of symptoms.

Conclusions: This case report provides supporting evidence that women suffering from pelvic and low back pain post-partum may benefit from chiropractic care. Research on the relationship between pelvic subluxation should be further conducted.
