I've never been to a chiropractor, but I'm wondering if it's time to give it a try.

I'm having a lot of problems with one of my hips. I've had issues with it in the past thanks to a nasty fall on ice and had to do pt for a while with it. I basically feel like something is seriously out of alignment. It's a different pain from when I was pregnant. Even though I didn't have a vaginal delivery my hips obviously were preparing and went through changes. How long does it normally take for them to get back to normal?

At what point would you throw in the towel and go to get out checked out?

Good question. I had a lot of hip and back pain in the last parts of pregnancy and while some is better, other things aren't. I have wondered if a chiro might help. No advice but looking forward to other thoughts?

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

I had a lot of hip pain during pregnancy and I think I'm going to go. I've gone to the chiro in the past and I loved it. I has neck and upper back issues and you have to go for a few weeks but I think it helped.

I just don't know when to go! I'm assuming after your cleared by the dr for normal activity you're fine right?

I have a lot of hip/neck/back problems from all my years of dancing and after my pregnancy and delivery of DS1 they were exacerbated. I waited for the pain to decrease but after a year postpartum I threw in the towel and started seeing a chiropractor. I am so glad I did! I started feeling better after the very first visit. I continued to see him during this pregnancy and went back for my first postpartum visit 3 wks after DS2 was born. It seriously has made a HUGE difference. I would advice looking into seeing a chiropractor to help realign things

i would choose who you decide to see based i on recommendations of friends, families, and acquaintances because like any other profession there are some really good chiros out there but the wrong one can really leave a bad impression and scare you away from seeing one.

I adore my chiro, and think everyone should see one all the time! :-) I agree that you should try to go off of recommendations from people you know. I wouldn't wait to be cleared either... I know my chiro offered to come to my house within a week of the birth if I needed it and didn't want to take the baby out

wife to Michael, mama to Zoe (13), Selene (9), Garvin (7), Gwen (4), Thomas (2.5), and a bonus surprise, due 30 April 2016

Thanks ladies! I've always been pretty anti chiropractor, but I'm starting to realize that this is a pain that would probably benefit from one. My hip being all messed up seems to be affecting my back too

Hubby goes to one, so maybe I'll call then next week.

My chiropractor is wonderful too, I saw her all through pregnancy. I've seen her once postpartum and will go again today. She didn't adjust my hips first visit (2 weeks pp), she said it was good to let the uterus heal a little more, but I'm hoping she will today at 4 weeks pp.

I always feel better after a visit and I think staying adjusted through pregnancy has helped things stay aligned now pp - I feel a lot less soreness/pain than after other pregnancies.

I would look for a chiro that specializes in pregnant women and children if you can find one, he/she will have studied best how to treat you and he/she can adjust Max too!
