Ouch...back pain

Did you know? 70% of all women experience low back pain during pregnancy especially in the final trimester. Chiropractic care helps pregnant patients feel more comfortable and may facilitate an uncomplicated labor and delivery. Chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective way of addressing musculoskeletal symptoms experienced during pregnancy.

 

The team at New World Chiro are happy to discuss pregnancy care for low back pain with you so you can focus on what's most important - becoming a mother.


How the body changes during pregnancy

During pregnancy, your body undergoes some dramatic changes that put pressure and stress on the neuromusculoskeletal system. These changes include:

  • increased stress on the sacroiliac joints
  • lumbar lordosis
  • stress on spinal discs and joints
  • curvature of the spine
  • pelvic hypermobility
  • decrease in spinal stabilisation
  • back and hip pain
  • overstretched abdominal muscles
  • irritation of the sciatic nerve

Back pain during pregnancy

The increasing weight and size of the growing baby puts stress on the spine's natural curves. As this weight is projected forward, the spine shifts to compensate. This contributes to low back pain, muscle tension and nerve pain.

Chiropractic Helps Low Back Pain

If you're worried about lower back pain during pregnancy, please contact the team at New World Chiro to discuss how chiropractic may help you. Chiropractic adjustments work to improve mobility of the spine, restore joint range of motion, increase muscle movement and decrease feelings of pain. Specific and targeted treatment can be applied to target areas in a way that is beneficial and complimentary to your pregnancy.
