Pain and Pregnancy Should not be Considered Normal
Aches and pains should not be what you remember from your pregnancy
Unfortunately, the narrative our society has accepted is that aches and pains are par for the course when it comes to pregnancy. And when it comes to relief, traditional forms of pain management fall short. Pain medication is a no-go because of the dangers for the fetus; herbal remedies and diet seem to only go so far when it comes to helping back pain. So where does this leave the prospective mother with lower back pain? No matter the severity of your pain, you can do something about it! Chiropractic is tailor made for addressing the aches and pains of pregnancy.
It’s time to change the way we think about pain and pregnancy
Pain during pregnancy is a natural outcome because of the following factors:
- Added weight of the growing fetus
- Shifted center of gravity
- Looser ligaments in the pelvis to make way for the passage of the baby.
All of these factors combine to destabilize the spine which means that every successive movement or compressive force is going to come down on a destabilized spine. At Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we use targeted adjustments at the base of the spine to restore alignment through the pelvis and ensure that your spine remains stable despite the physiological changes and hormonal upheaval. This ensures that you experience less lower back pain and, consequently, less stress related to pain.
