Written By Cerwin Clinic of Chiropractic on May 16, 2019

Pregnant woman with low back pain in CharlotteChiropractic care is a natural approach to life and health which helps the mother gain trust in her body’s own ability to accomplish this incredible, innate unfoldment.

What Causes Low Back Pain During Pregnancy?

  • If your pelvis is out of balance in any way, the ligaments attached to the uterus can become torqued or twisted. This constraint limits the space for the developing baby.
  • A large percentage of all pregnant women experience back discomfort/pain during pregnancy. This is mainly due to the rapid growth of the baby.
  • Poor posture
  • Weight gain

How Can Chiropractic Help?

  • Chiropractic adjustments provide relief from increased lower back and/or hip pain.
  • Gentle adjustments are safe for a pregnant woman and her baby. Adjustments can be especially attractive to those who are trying to avoid medications.
  • Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help prepare your body for labor and may even help to shorten time in labor.
  • Chiropractic care can also help after childbirth. In the weeks following delivery, the ligaments that loosen during pregnancy begin to tighten. Joint problems brought on during pregnancy by improper lifting or reaching should be treated before the ligaments return to their pregnancy state.
