Pregnancy and Back Pain
The more advanced your pregnancy, the worse the back pain can become. Pregnancy and back pain are associated together for a few reasons.
- Your pelvis is relaxing to prepare you for the birth of your child. At the same time, your uterus is growing and expanding. This puts the majority of your weight in front of you and adds extra work and stress onto the back, resulting in pain.
- Your center of gravity has also shifted as you advance through the stages of your pregnancy. Again, your back has to do extra work to account for this gravitational shift.
- In addition, the hormones that are produced during pregnancy can affect the ligaments and joints in the back, resulting in sacroiliac joint dysfunction, which causes pain in the lower and mid-back.
I have many years experience in the treatment of back pain in pregnant women. My gentle methods and special training have enabled me to provide back pain relief through all three trimesters.
Your pregnancy should be a joyful time, not a painful time. Additionally, babies, while in utero, can often pick up on the pain and stress experienced by the mother. Gentle, safe, chiropractic treatments can result in a healthier pregnancy and a healthier baby.
Back Pain Treatment and Chiropractic Adjustments
are performed by skilled and licensed chiropractors in order to treat back pain. Back pain treatment can include spinal manipulations and other hands-on treatments. I believe that a holistic, hands-on approach will enable your body to regain mobility in joints that have been stressed by either a trauma, injury, or repetitive motion or stress. My goals for my patients are simple. I believe that everyone has the right to live pain-free. I believe that often, back pain is dismissed by the conventional medical community. I believe that with proper, licensed, chiropractic care, injury to the spine can be treated and can also be prevented.
Research has shown that properly executed spinal adjustments can stop the pain associated with neck pain
and back injuries, headaches, Fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis besides alleviating the acute pain associated with a sudden spinal spasm.
