Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most uncomfortable – and even painful – times. The health of the baby is always the top priority, which limits the options for pregnancy pain relief. While many expectant mothers mistakenly believe they have no choice other than to suffer through the pain, chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective way to ease the discomfort.
Thousands of women seek chiropractic for pregnancy pain each year, and for good reason – prenatal chiropractic is safe for both the mother and unborn child, and it provides a number of benefits.
Most women experience some degree of back pain during pregnancy. During the second trimester, women gain up to 35 pounds. The significant weight gain that occurs during pregnancy causes a shift in the mother’s center of gravity, putting significant strain on the spine.
The baby’s increasing weight also puts pressure on the mother’s nerves and can cause sciatica as well as lower back pain and neck pain.
Due to potential fetal harm, most prescription and over-the-counter pain medications are not appropriate for expectant mothers. Chiropractic is a safe and effective alternative to pain killers, and rather than proving a temporary reduction in pain, it provides long-term relief.
In addition to relieving pain, seeking chiropractic treatment during pregnancy helps ensure an optimal birthing position for the baby, and it can even decrease the length of your labor.
