Re: Electrical Stimulation and Pregnancy

The use of TENS in pregnancy has been done for years in europe. In the US we were taught that it is contraindicated during pregnancy. I know of no studies that using it would harm the child or fetus. I would ask your OB and see what they think. Honestly, I don't think there is anything to worry about but I have no definite answer to ease your mind. Chiropractic care has been very beneficial to my pregnant patients for relieving pain. Do you see a chiropractor?
