What if I told you that you didn’t have to “just live with,” the aches and pains of pregnancy? Well, you don’t, at least not to such a severe degree. So many people accept back pain as an inextricably linked element of pregnancy, never realizing that they can forego this discomfort with natural methods. A minimally stressful pregnancy depends on the optimal health of your spine and nervous system.
Here is the pregnancy recipe for back pain:
- The protruded abdomen promotes an exaggerated spinal curve.
- Pelvic ligaments are destabilized.
- On top of these two changes is placed the weight of the growing child.
These are the most basic characteristics of pregnancy that contribute to back pain; every individual pregnancy is rife with intricacies that can complicate the situation. Our goal is to keep the expectant mother as comfortable as possible, while creating a nurturing, spacious environment for the baby to grow.
Chiropractic is valuable for establishing balance in the pelvis, which has implications in the later stages of pregnancy. Sacral subluxation can reduce the amount of room available for the baby to grow and position itself for a birth free of complication. We take the responsibility of establishing pelvic balance for prospective mothers very seriously.
