Do You have Back Pain during Pregnancy?
(& How to Fix it!)
During Pregnancy, a mother’s body goes through enormous hormonal, postural and physical changes. In addition to this mothers don’t tend to slow down very much due to work and family commitments.
Your body adapts to the changing pressures of pregnancy as well as contributing to the harmonious growth and development of your baby. As your baby grows, considerable stress is placed on muscles, ligaments, joints and overall posture of a woman’s spine. To make matters worse, the pelvis may begin to rotate to allow for the developing baby. This can lead to distortion of the surrounding connective tissue.
Clinically, Chiropractic Care has been shown to relieve back pain for up to 85% of pregnant women as well as maintaining pelvic balance which allows for less intervention during labour and reduced labour time. Chiropractic care also plays an integral role in helping to ensure that the developing baby is in the correct position and ready for delivery.
Your chiropractor will adapt their techniques to accommodate the changes in a mother’s body shape and range of movement throughout the stages of pregnancy, and will cater their care specifically to your needs and the needs of your baby.
