Low Back Pain Relief in Pregnancy
Approximately 50-72% of women experience low back pain during their pregnancy. Studies show 10% of women will experience back discomfort for at least two years following delivery. Back problems associated with pregnancy are a major health concern.
Medications and surgery are not the answer for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
A non-surgical and drug-free option in the form of chiropractic treatment is a pregnant woman’s best option. Chiropractic offers a safe, non-invasive approach to managing back pain relief in pregnancy.
Because of the changes occurring in a woman's body during her pregnancy, the lower part of the spine in the pelvis are susceptible to becoming misaligned and moving improperly.
Because of the weight and position of the growing fetus, the lower back and pelvic bones can experience improper movement and misalignments of their joints. A chiropractic examination will reveal where the misalignments occur in the low back and pelvis. Then, the pregnant patient receives safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments to give effective relief of lower back pain.
Research shows that women receiving chiropractic care during their pregnancy experience faster delivery time and less delivery discomfort.
We encourage you to seek chiropractic care during your pregnancy to manage pain so that you can enjoy your pregnancy!
