Chiropractic Care Excellent for Pregnancy-Related Back Pain
Several things happen during pregnancy that can cause back pain: 1) gaining 25-35lbs during a healthy pregnancy, putting added pressure on blood vessels and nerves in the pelvis and back, 2) pelvic structure changes to accommodate giving birth, 3) your posture changes due to extra weight in the front, 4) hormones tell spine-supporting ligaments to loosen, and 5) good ole stress.
At Dr. David Wren Chiropractic & Sports Injury in the Albany area, we love helping expecting mothers have an easier, more enjoyable pregnancy. Studies show chiropractic care can help keep pregnancy-related back pain to a minimum.
How Chiropractic Care Helps With Pregnancy-Related Back Pain
Approximately 70% of women experience back pain during pregnancy, according to the American Pregnancy Association. At its core, chiropractic care during pregnancy helps keep the body in proper alignment, thus reducing pain.
In one study of pregnant women and chiropractic, 94 percent of the participants experienced a dramatic improvement in their pain in just 5 days.
Regular chiropractic care aims to keep your pelvis and back properly balanced, which is critical to preventing back pain. This also creates more room for your baby to develop and maneuver into position for delivery.
Bonus benefits of regular chiropractic care during pregnancy include having an overall healthier pregnancy, reduced labor time, reducing the chance of a breech or needing a c-section, and less nausea. Our clinic has adjustment tables specifically designed to accommodate a pregnant body and your baby.
