Chiropractic for Pregnancy?

pregnancy

Have you considered chiropractic care for pregnancy? The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort, and it's common for women to complain of a lot of lower back pain while pregnant.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50-70% of pregnant women experience lower back pain at some point during their pregnancy. The back pain generally peaks around the third trimester because this is when the baby gains the most weight.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body must undergo a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to the weight that is gained, a mother’s center of gravity moves from its natural position, shifting to the front of her pelvis. This can add stress and discomfort to the lower back and various joints in the pelvis.


Added Stress as Pregnancy Progresses

Throughout the pregnancy, as the baby grows, the mother gains more weight, adding to the stress on the lower back, increasing the lordotic curvature of her lower back. If the sufferer already has a history of lower back problems, there is a good chance that the pregnancy will aggravate the condition. This may lead to difficulty performing daily routines such as dressing or working, and can create complications during labor.

Stress on the lower back can create many more additional problems. Issues such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation and more have been reported.
