New Fairfield CT Pregnancy Back Pain
Being pregnant is an amazing and daunting time all rolled into one. You are experiencing the wonder of growing a new life inside of you and often your body begins to let you know about it.

The Shift

As your belly grows and the weight begins to get heavier and shift positions, it is not uncommon (but not normal) to begin to experience pains. As many new mothers can attest, the muscle strains of pregnancy are very real and can be more than just a nuisance. The average weight gain of 25 to 35 pounds, combined with the increased stress placed on the body by the baby, may result in severe discomfort. Studies have found that about half of all expectant mothers will develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies.  This is especially true during late pregnancy, when the baby’s head presses down on a woman’s back, legs, and buttocks, irritating her sciatic nerve. And for those who already suffer from low-back pain, the problem can become even worse.  By ensuring that your pelvis is in correct alignment, less stress and pressure is placed on your spine and also it results in a shorter labor time!

Your Delivery Team of Great Results

Many pregnant women have found that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from the increased low-back pain brought on by pregnancy. Chiropractic manipulation is safe throughout your pregnancy for you and your unborn child and can be especially attractive to those who are trying to avoid medications in treating their back pain. Doctors of chiropractic can also offer nutrition, ergonomic, and exercise advice to help you enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

Chiropractic care can also help after childbirth. In the eight weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten up again. Ideally, joint problems brought on during pregnancy from improper lifting or reaching should be treated before the ligaments return to their pre-pregnancy state-to prevent muscle tension, headaches, rib discomfort, and shoulder problems.

If you are expecting  or thinking of having a baby it makes perfect sense to have a checkup by a Chiropractor so you can experience the benefits of a healthier pregnancy, shorter labor time and more restful nights.
