What causes back pain during pregnancy?
There are a variety of factors that contribute towards back pain in pregnancy, postural and hormonal changes being key. As the baby grows, so must the mother’s body as she adapts to accommodate her precious cargo. Hormones released during pregnancy, mainly oestrogen and progesterone, cause ligaments and joints to soften, making them more prone to injury.
How can chiropractic help with pregnancy?
Chiropractors work on your spine and pelvis during pregnancy to promote balance and alignment. When the pelvis is out of balance, the ligaments that connect to and support the uterus can become twisted, causing a condition known as uterine constraint. By ensuring that your pelvis and nervous system are correctly balanced, alongside providing advice on muscle relaxation techniques and the best positions to support your back, we can help your body to adapt to pregnancy with ease and grace.
We consider chiropractic care to be an important part of your prenatal routine. As mother and baby grow together, chiropractic helps to release restrictions allowing the body to perform at its very best.
