Back pain is a symptom during pregnancy for greater than 50% of pregnant folks. Pregnant bodies go through hormonal and physiologic changes to accommodate a growing fetus. Ligaments relax, and the pelvis and spine can become misaligned or just plain achy.
Chiropractic evaluation and treatment is considered by the medical community to be a safe and effective means of addressing musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy. It can also be helpful in getting things ‘back in line’ after delivery while your ligaments begin to tighten again and your body adapts to the decreased burden.
Many adaptations to adjustment techniques can be used to accommodate safe and comfortable adjustments. Massage and Acupuncture are also effective and safe during pregnancy.
