Pregnancy back pain – how your chiro can help
If the discomfort of pregnancy back pain is making your life a little more challenging than usual, it might be time to drop in and see your chiro for a little bit of relief.
Get in early to support yourself
The good news is you don’t actually have to wait for pregnancy back pain to kick in before you take yourself off to the chiropractor for any treatment. It can also be used as a preventative measure to help you prepare for the changes your body is about to experience with a growing foetus.
What can cause pregnancy back pain?
There are actually a number of reasons why pregnant women will feel pain radiating from their lower back area.
- Firstly, as your body releases hormones in preparation for delivering the baby, joints and ligaments will loosen and soften.
- The expanding growth of your uterus shifts your centre of gravity and stretches and weakens your abdominal muscles. This of course changes your posture and your back pays the price.
- Gaining weight can put pressure on your back.
- The position and/or weight of your baby itself can create pressure on your lower back.
- Stress and worry plus tiredness.
