The female body goes through multiple changes while pregnant – hormonal, postural and bio-mechanical. Back pain is one of the major side effects of pressure build-up from added weight. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive solution to alleviate this pain. Women who have received chiropractic care have reported easier and faster deliveries through helping the mom and baby’s body adjust for birth.
During pregnancy, back pain occurs from the added weight a growing baby will bring to a body. While the baby is growing, your center of gravity is shifting, causing the lower back muscles to tighten and stretch. The curves in the cervical lumbar region are increased and place extra stress on the lower back and neck.
Specialized chiropractic procedures are used for mom and baby during pregnancy. Special pillows and tables are used to ensure maximum comfort. Adjustments made will help to increase joint mobility and to release stress in the soft tissue. Relaxing the muscles will allow the joint to loosen and relieve pain in the back.
