Pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman. The expectation of new life is the beginning of new body changes. Some changes are good, such as the first time you hear your baby's heartbeat, or the first time your baby kicks. These are pleasurable, irreplaceable moments that bring joy to any expectant mom's life.
However, there are other times when expectant moms experience prenatal lower back pain. This type of pain is normal in pregnancy, although not all women experience this type of pain. During pregnancy, the body goes through many transitions. The way you look and feel changes as well. Some days you might feel great, and other days you might not feel so great.
Prenatal Lower Back Pain Causes
Our chiropractors, Dr. Briggs and Dr. Jay, can help you with your pregnancy back pain. Chiropractic care is safe and effective in minimizing lower back pain. In the early stages of pregnancy, the ligaments in the body soften and stretch to prepare your body for the delivery of your baby. These changes put stress on the body, particularly the back. The changes put a strain on the joint and pelvis areas, as these areas are important in the preparation of delivery.
Other Reasons Why Prenatal Moms Should Consider Chiropractic Care
Aside from reducing lower back pain, chiropractic wellness offers many other great benefits. As the body changes, so do oxygen levels, energy levels, and hormone levels. These changes can have an effect on the body, and cause discomfort and more pain.
Women search for years for a safe treatment alternative that will help them through the most precious times in their lives. When prenatal chiropractic care is included in your plans for a less complex delivery, everyone is happy. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from prenatal chiropractic care:
- Help reduce nausea and morning sickness
- Make labor and delivery more tolerable
- Help keep the body in alignment
- Help with posture
- Improve the positioning of the baby before giving birth
