Pregnancy Care

It is common for women to complain of back pain while pregnant. The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to weight gain, a mother’s center of 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 pregnancy, as the baby grows, the mother gains more weight, and the body becomes more stressed, causing the Lordotic curvature in her lower 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. Hidden spinal subluxations manifest out and cause more pressure on the nerves and instability of the spinal joints causing pain, stiffness, and tightness. This may lead to difficulty performing daily routines and create difficulties in labor. The back pain generally peaks around the third trimester because the baby gains the most weight. There are many more effects that the stress on the low back can create such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation and much more.

Proper nervous system and spinal function are crucial to the development of a baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom. Your nervous system controls and coordinates the birthing process. It makes sense that improved spine and pelvic alignment along with the resulting improved nervous system function and coordination is a great foundation for a great birth.
