Thankfully, this is when many new mothers discover the wonders of safe and natural chiropractic care. Why? Because you want back pain relief without medications or anything else that might affect your developing baby. Which is why chiropractic is so popular among mothers in the know about women’s health.
It’s obvious your body changes when you’re pregnant, and these changes can sometimes trigger back pain. Some of the more common causes of pregnancy-related back pain include:
These and other structural causes often show up during pregnancy. But the stage is often set long before your pregnancy. Your pregnancy simply made these spinal preexisting problems more obvious.
If you’re pregnant and have back pain, it’s highly likely that you have one or more misalignments of spinal vertebra. Thankfully, this is something that today’s chiropractors detect and resolve all the time.
Naturally, you take special care of yourself when you’re pregnant. Dealing with this episode of back pain is no exception, which is why chiropractic is an excellent choice for pregnant women seeking back pain relief.
After determining the location of the spinal misalignments causing your back pain, chiropractors use precise “adjustments” to reposition these wayward spinal bones into a more normal pattern.
Using their hands, or a small hand instrument, they add just the right amount of energy at the right time and place. Ahhhh. Adjustments feel great!
Because there are no drugs or other invasive procedures involved, this natural approach to back pain relief is safe for you and your baby. Midwives, doulas and other pregnancy experts swear by chiropractic. Pregnancy is a natural process and chiropractic is a natural health discipline that honors the inborn wisdom of your body.
Chiropractors reduce areas of spinal instability and allow your body and nervous system to function more normally. In fact, many new mothers see their chiropractor on a regular basis during their pregnancy to be their best. Many have reported shorter, more comfortable deliveries.
