Pregnancy Back Pain Relief
Many women experience lower back pain during their pregnancy. Fortunately, chiropractic is a practical solution offering pain relief.
Pregnant women experience physical changes to their spine and pelvis as pregnancy progresses. As the baby grows, the mother's stomach protrudes placing stress upon the lower spine.
Likewise, the bones of the pelvis may become misaligned, causing irritation of the joints and possibly a pinched sciatic nerve, a painful condition causing radiating nerve pain down the leg.
Chiropractic care for low back pain rising from pregnancy is a combination of manual therapies and specific exercises. Spinal adjustments can realign the joints of the spine and pelvis to help expectant mothers gain pain relief. Chiropractic spinal adjustments are a safe and gentle treatment.
Women who would like to have a healthy and comfortable pregnancy should add a chiropractor to their healthcare team.
