Pregnant women suffer from numerous aches and pains as their joints loosen up and they add weight in preparation for birth. While many moms-to-be simply suffer through the pain in silence, it does not have to be that way. There are many effective pain relieving treatments, including seeking care from a practitioner of chiropractic. In fact, these treatments can relieve or eliminate most pains associated with pregnancy, other than the actual birthing process.
Persistent Pregnancy Pains that Chiropractic Care Treats
Full Body Rejuvenation recommends that pregnant women seek certified chiropractic treatment for pregnancy-related aches, pains and headaches.
- Back Pain- One of the most common types of pain that moms-to-be suffer from is back pain. This is typically caused by weight gain and the changes in weight distribution that occur during pregnancy. In particular, this added weight causes extra stress on the lower back. In some cases, it also can also cause sciatica, which is characterized by back pain, leg pain and numbness or tingling in the lower extremities.
- Joint Pain- Painful joints are another common symptoms of pregnancy that is caused by the loosening of joints and ligaments in preparation for birth.
- Headaches – Pregnant women also often suffer from an increase in headaches due to changes in muscle alignment, hormonal changes, dehydration and numerous other reasons. Unfortunately, most traditional over-the-counter pain relievers are not safe to take during pregnancy. However, proper spinal and muscle alignments performed in a chiropractic office provide safe, all-natural pain relief from these headaches.
