Tips to Relieve Back Pain During Pregnancy

Jul 16, 2020

An estimated 85% of women experience back pain during pregnancy. Why? As a woman enters her second or third trimester, her growing baby pulls her body’s centre of gravity forward, which in turn increases the curve of her low back. That increased amount of stress on the low back often leads to pain.

Spinal adjustments are considered a highly safe, effective, non-invasive, and evidence-based option for women to find relief from pregnancy induced back pain. In fact, Chatswood chiropractor often also provide specific exercise and stretching recommendations to help ensure lasting results.

A recent study found that patients who received care from their Obstetrician and Chiropractor together had greater reductions in pain and an improved quality of life versus those who only saw an Obstetrician alone.

  • Approximately 92% of pregnant women are advised by their primary doctor to exercise and stay active during pregnancy.
  • Choosing the right pillows and finding the best stretches can dramatically reduce any pregnancy induced neck and mid-back discomfort.
  • The low back pain that many women experience during pregnancy can often be relieved with chiropractic adjustments.

If you or someone you know is expecting, reducing stress, staying physically active, and finding relief from those pregnancy related aches and pains are important. We hope you’ll consider including us as part of your birth team. An amazing 90% of women report a high level of satisfaction with receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy, so it’s no wonder that chiropractic is one of the most popular “organic” healthcare choices for expecting mums.
