Back pain during pregnancy is common. You can blame it on your growing uterus or hormonal changes. But there are several reasons you’re feeling a pain in your back. Although back pain in pregnancy is common, it still deserves attention.
Can the pain be relieved through a chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care can relieve back pain when you’re pregnant. But it’s not the only benefit of this procedure. We recommend undergoing it to help you maintain a healthier pregnancy. It can also control your symptoms of nausea and may reduce your time of labor and delivery. What’s great about it is that it can prevent you from a potential C-section delivery.
One of the goals of chiropractic in pregnant women is to establish pelvic balance and align it. A misaligned pelvis is usually the reason for having back pain while pregnant. When you have a misaligned pelvis, your baby will have difficulty positioning himself/herself for delivery. Thus, it negatively affects your ability to have a natural birth.
When you undergo chiropractic care, your back pain will be relieved and you’ll have better chances of having a non-invasive birth and avoiding caesarean delivery.
You may talk to your healthcare provider to know whether or not chiropractic care is beneficial for your case, especially in reducing back pain. Most doctors would refer their pregnant patients to Back to Wellness Center so they’ll be relieved of the associated pain of pregnancy without having to resort to medicines.
In addition to chiropractic care, you can also undergo a massage therapy performed by our licensed and highly trained physical therapists. Having a massage therapy is ideal in releasing muscle tension and stress. With a gentle massage, your body will experience proper blood circulation, thereby, combatting fatigue.
