Prenatal Care for Lower Back Pain with Our Chiropractor
One of the most common complaints during pregnancy is lower back pain. Most pregnant moms think it’s something they just have to live with during that time. Our team at Coast Family Chiroic is committed to helping you relieve that pain for a happier, healthier pregnancy.
Why Does the Lower Back Hurt during Pregnancy?
Although lower back pain is expected during pregnancy, that doesn’t mean it’s normal. On the contrary, the lower back hurts because something isn’t typical in the body.
For example, your lower back might hurt due to the extra weight you are now carrying, which puts additional pressure on your lower back. Of course, it’s natural for your baby to grow and your belly to expand, but it’s still an abnormal amount of weight on your spine. In addition, changes in posture can lead to misalignment and compress nerves.
Your lower back might also hurt as your body prepares for the baby’s arrival. However, the human body is beautiful and knows what to do. When preparing for birth, a woman’s joints begin to soften and loosen to allow the baby to arrive. Of course, this has to happen, but it can lead to pain and discomfort.
Stress and fatigue can also lead to lower back pain, as can the baby’s position and more. In short, several things can cause your lower back to hurt. Regardless of the cause, chiropractic prenatal care is a safe and effective way to address it. You don’t have to wait until you’re already in pain. Visiting throughout your pregnancy can even help prevent these pains from occurring in the first place.
How Chiropractic Pregnancy Care Can Help
Chiropractic care is a very effective and natural method of addressing issues that cause lower back pain. A combination of prenatal adjustments, therapeutic massage, and more are provided to treat complex and soft tissues. These adjustments help relieve your pain and promote a faster, healthier delivery.
You might be slightly concerned about visiting our chiropractor while pregnant, which is understandable. However, you only want what’s best for your little one, and you certainly don’t want to hurt them in any way.
Rest assured, though, that you’ll be in good hands. Chiropractors that provide prenatal care specialize in utilizing the gentlest methods possible. Therefore, your adjustments will not be carried out through high amounts of force or any twisting motions.
