While many women go through pregnancy without major problems, there are a number of expectant mothers who feel discomfort – even pain – during and post-pregnancy.

That’s because when a woman gets pregnant, many changes happen to the body as it tries to adapt to the needs of the pregnancy. One change that can cause discomfort (and sometimes pain) in many pregnancies is the enlargement of the abdomen as the child grows inside the womb. The weight of the enlarged abdomen can affect the woman’s posture, which causes the joint to misalign. This misalignment causes back pain that can sometimes linger on even after pregnancy.

Low Back Pain and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a known non-invasive, no medication treatment for back pain. According to Dr. Ali of ChiroCarolina®, this treatment is something that even pregnant women can go through as it is safe and has many benefits in store for them. Aside from relief for low back pain, chiropractic adjustments can also help decrease pain during delivery as it loosens up the tension in the spine and pelvis.

Aside from adjustments, chiropractors will also advise pregnant women to perform certain exercises and lifestyle changes that can help them during and after pregnancy.
