I'm so upset. At 37weeks I went to this chiropractor to get my pelvis well aligned in hopes that it would help when I go into labor. Prior to going I had some very minor sciatic pain occasionally but other than that I felt fine. I could walk pain free. She is Webster technique certified. Her thermal assessment only showed a misalignment in my C6. She used some torque tool to adjust that and adjust the left side of my sacrum and then she loosened my left round ligament. By the Tuesday I had severe pain in my right iliac/sacrum area. By Wednesday, I could hardly walk. Five days later, and It's still incredibly painful to walk. My most comfortable mode of transport now is crawling on my hands and knees!
To make matters worse, my baby had been low in my belly with the head in my pelvis and now she is floating up by my ribs. I want very badly to have a vaginal birth and this is an important time for me to be walking to help the baby engage and progress. Plus, I have a 17 month old to care for and if I'm not better by Monday, my husband will have to take off from work!
I can't believe this has happened and don't know what to do. Find another chiropractor and get another adjustment? Or could that just further injure the area. I'm wondering if this chiropractor actually misaligned my pelvis and uterus and this is going to prevent the baby from engaging if its not fixed. Anyone else have this happen to them?
