75 percent of pregnant women experience pregnancy-related low back pain, pelvic pain, or a combination; this pain increases as pregnancy progresses. In an effort to avoid chemically treating your symptoms, why not manage them with an effective drugless alternative? With the unavoidable change in your center of gravity, this process increases your lumbar lordosis, resulting in musculoskeletal conditions.
2. Sciatic Nerve Pain: since your precious cargo contributes to uterine pressure on supporting vasculature or direct compression of the sciatic nerve.
3. Sacral Pain: as hormonal changes allow for ligament laxity, increased mobility, and joint separation from Relaxin. Pubis dysfunction can produce pain and unwanted symptoms during the birthing process.
Chiropractic care and patient education as part of a comprehensive prenatal care team has been shown to hold greater benefit for pregnant patients than traditional obstetric care alone.
