Chiropractic seems to be helping

Nina - ninabeth@sbcglobal.net

I had a baby 11 months ago and the coccyx pain has been driving me nuts. Neither my obstetrician nor an orthopedic pain specialist had ever heard of post-childbirth coccyx pain. The pain doctor recommended physical therapy, which I haven't tried yet because my husband convinced me to visit his chiropractor first. The chiropractor promised he could get me pain-free, which I don't really believe, but I will say that after 5 weeks of treatments twice a week, the pain is less intense and I can sit for longer periods of time.

Does anybody have any experience with chiropractic and/or physical therapy? I'd like to hear other people's stories.

I want to get pregnant again soon but I'm worried the problem will get worse after having another baby.
