Back Pain and Pregnancy: Massage to the Rescue

A few articles ago we discussed the safety and benefits of Chiropractic care during pregnancy. This week I want to give a shout out to our amazing team of Massage Therapists for their skill and knowledge around pregnancy massage. We have a body pillow that can help facilitate laying face down for much of your pregnancy but side lying and bolstered massage is also available. 

Low back pain, aching muscles, and carpal tunnel syndrome flare-ups are common in pregnancy as our center of gravity changes, pelvic connective tissue relaxes and body shape changes. Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, and any kind of exercise or movement are helping to manage the pain. Be sure to check with your obstetrician or midwife to make sure all of those would be safe for you and come on by we’re here to help :)

Testimonials

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    John Doe / Portland, OR
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Gabriel and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Jane Smith / Portland, OR
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Kelly McDonald / Portland, OR
