Back pain in pregnancy got you down? Think Chiropractic!
Dr. Rochelle Bien & Dr. Michael Goldstein
For many pregnant women, aches and pains in the lower back and hips are part of the experience. In fact 50% of women will experience back pain at some point before they deliver. There are so many hormonal and physical changes during your pregnancy which can have an impact on your posture and comfort. As your baby becomes heavier, your center of gravity shifts and your posture adjusts accordingly leading to misalignments in the spine which causes changes in nerve function and symptoms appear.
Chiropractic is not only beneficial to you but to your baby as well. Misalignments in the pelvis can restrict the amount of space that is available for your baby to grow. This is known as intrauterine constraint. This can make it hard for your baby to move into the best position for delivery increasing the chance for a breech or posterior position. This can complicate your delivery.
Lisa L. entered our practice at 36 weeks pregnant with back pain and sciatica which she had endured for several weeks. At the urging of her friend she decided to give chiropractic a chance. She was pleasantly surprised that after several adjustments her pain was significantly reduced. She continued with care right up to her delivery to insure that her pelvis was aligned to reduce any complications that may arise during delivery. Post Natal care was encouraged to insure that her pelvis was aligned after delivery. Lisa followed through with care and is enjoying her baby pain free.
