Chiropractic for Pregnancy?

chiropractic care for pregnant mothers

Have you considered chiropractic care for pregnancy in Ballard Seattle WA? It's common for women to complain of a lot of low back pain while pregnant. The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort.

During pregnancy, a women’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to the weight that that is gained, a mother’s center gravity changes. It shifts to the front of her pelvis and this is not a natural position. It can result in added stress and discomfort in the low back and various joints in the pelvis. Throughout the pregnancy, as the baby grows, the mother gains more weight, and the back becomes more stressed, causing the lordotic curvature in her low back to increase. If there has been a history of low back problems, there is a good chance that the pregnancy will aggravate the condition. This may lead to difficultly performing daily routines and create difficulties in labor.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50-70% of pregnant women experience low back pain at some point. The back pain generally peaks around the third trimester because the baby gains the most weight. There are many more affects that the stress on the low back can create such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation and much more.
