Studies show a majority of women experience neck, hip, or back pain during their pregnancy. This pain can range from mild to severe, and can continue after delivery and become chronic if not properly addressed.
Gentle chiropractic care throughout pregnancy is proven to provide greater comfort for pregnancy pain without the harmful side effects that pain medicine may cause. It also helps to support less complicated deliveries, optimizing health for mother and child.
The weight gain that occurs during pregnancy and structural adaptation of the body puts pressure on the vertebral segments of the spine and sacroiliac joints, causing low back pain. As the baby grows, pressure on the bladder, urethra, rectum, and pelvic structures can also cause pain and discomfort.
The third trimester can be especially uncomfortable with low back pain. The hormone called relaxin, along with progesterone and estrone, is being released in preparation for birth. These hormones, circulating throughout the body, can also cause pain.
Atlas Orthogonal, an upper cervical specialty, is a gentle and very precise technique in chiropractic care that is highly effective during and after pregnancy to align the spine, reduce nerve interference, and reduce pain and discomfort. Gentle chiropractic care helps with a healthier pregnancy and delivery by helping the baby assume an optimal birthing position. It also helps the mother become structurally aligned, reducing deliveries that need forceps or vacuum extraction.
Your pregnancy is unique and special and meant to be joyous. Find more comfort and pain relief with regular chiropractic and spinal care.
Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic is also proven to be effective and safe in treating patients with migraines, neck and back pain, digestive issues, fatigue, vertigo, sciatica and other health issues.
