Pregnancy Related Back Pain Detailsby Ellen Bialo, DC
What causes back pain during pregnancy?During pregnancy, hormones relax the joints creating an environment that is prone to misalignment. Lower back pain is a common problem during pregnancy. There is a tendency for the pelvis and lower back to misalign. Gentle adjustments easily create balance again.
How can chiropractic care help me resolve my low back pain?
Chiropractic care works by gently realigning the spine and pelvis to reduce uneven stress and strain that can be caused by pregnancy. Through this realignment, the nerve pathways between the brain and the muscles of the lower back are optimized and circulation is restored. With gentle, non-forceful adjustments, balance can be restored and pain is relieved.
