Electrical Stimulation while pregnant

I am currently 17 weeks pregnant and was referred to a local chiropractor for low back pain that began approximately 3 weeks ago. I have been going at least twice weekly for adjustments and therapy. I am now very concerned and nervous because at my visits they have been performing ultrasound and using electrical stimulation on my lower back. Someone has recently mentioned to me that you aren't supposed to have electrical stimulation while pregnant. Now I am very scared that this therpay may be harming my baby. Can you please tell me if this is safe while pregnant?
