Pregnancy and Back Pain
Chiropractic care if you’re pregnant? Absolutely! If there's one group of people who needs chiropractic spinal checkups more than any other, it's pregnant women. A pregnant female has special needs of her own and undergoes many changes both externally and internally. The new distribution of body weight creates stress on the abdomen and low back, which can be a source of discomfort for the mother. When the body is pulled forward, a great deal of stress is placed on the muscles of the lower back, which leads to additional stress on the discs and joints of the spine, and loosening of the ligaments. That is why many pregnant women have mid and lower back pain.
Our goal in treating these problems is to provide freedom from nerve irritation and ensure the pelvic bones are in proper alignment. Adjustments help relieve tension in the middle and lower back to better sustain the changes you will go through during pregnancy. With a little preventative medicine and spinal tension release, you can be strong and stable for the entire term of the pregnancy.
