CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY?
Have you contemplated chiropractic care during pregnancy? The physical strain of pregnancy often leads to significant discomfort, and it is not uncommon for pregnant women to experience substantial lower back pain.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, approximately 50-70% of pregnant women encounter lower back pain at some stage of their pregnancy. This discomfort typically reaches its peak during the third trimester, when the baby gains the most weight.
Throughout pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes numerous changes to accommodate the growing baby. The weight gained during this period shifts the mother’s center of gravity from its natural position to the front of her pelvis. This shift can impose stress and discomfort on the lower back and various pelvic joints.
INCREASED STRAIN AS PREGNANCY ADVANCES
As pregnancy progresses and the baby grows, the mother’s weight increases, placing additional stress on the lower back and causing an increased lordotic curvature in the lower back. If the individual already has a history of lower back problems, there is a significant likelihood that the pregnancy will exacerbate the condition. This can result in difficulties performing daily activities such as dressing or working and may introduce complications during labor.
The added stress on the lower back can contribute to various other issues. Individuals have reported problems like leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation, and more.
