Prenatal Chiropractic & Lower Back Pain

Back pain is a common complaint among many pregnant women. In fact, many pregnant women suffer back pain at some point in their pregnancy journey.

You don’t have to suffer the wrath of back pain when pregnant. If you are in Renton, WA and its environs, prenatal chiropractic care from Hughes Chiropractic and Massage can help provide much-needed relief.

Why Is Back Pain Common in Pregnant Women?

Let’s look at the reasons why back pain occurs among pregnant women. During pregnancy, your body undergoes multiple physical and physiological changes. As a result, the below changes occur, leading to lower back pain:

  • An increase in weight puts undue pressure on the spine
  • The body releases a hormone to prepare for birth, leading to the loosening of the pelvic ligaments and joints
  • A shift in the center of gravity as the belly and hips expand to accommodate the growing baby
  • Increased curvature at the back
  • Stress
  • Change in natural posture

Some women see a chiropractor early enough to help ensure their body is prepared for what is coming during pregnancy.

How Prenatal Chiropractic Care May Help with Back Pain

The major benefit of chiropractic care for pregnant women is reducing pain. When a chiropractor safely manipulates your spine, this action reduces tension in the nervous system, bringing balance to the whole body. The result? You experience reduced pain since your nervous system works optimally to coordinate body functions.

Furthermore, chiropractic treatment helps align your spinal and pelvic joints, helping to reduce undue pressure on your back. What’s more is that aligning your pelvic muscles helps creates more room for the baby, helping to reduce intrauterine constraints.
