Back Pain During Pregnancy

The changes experienced by the body of a pregnant woman throughout the nine months of gestation are more than evident at a physical, physiological, and hormonal levels.

Among them, changes in the musculoskeletal system are observed, with an anteriorization of the center of gravity and an increase in the curvature of the lumbar spine to compensate for the increased weight of the uterus, which can cause the appearance of back pain, more commonly in that area. 
With chiropractic adjustments, before and during pregnancy, pregnant women can achieve a more flexible and dynamic spine and improve their well-being during these months.

Pre & Post-Natal Chiropractic Care

Pregnancy is divided into 3 trimesters. In each of them, the physical changes experienced by the woman’s body are different, and the possible discomforts derived from the process of gestation and fetal growth, too.

One of the most frequent symptoms during the second trimester is sciatica. It is caused by the baby’s weight gain. The overload this places on the back can cause irritation of the sciatic nerve.
During the third trimester, uterine growth is more than evident and there is an anteriorization of the center of gravity and an increase in the curvature of the lumbar spine to compensate for the weight gain.

Chiropractic is a health profession recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization) that is responsible for the detection and correction of problems in the spine and the nervous system.
The nervous system controls all the functions of the body, for it to function properly it is protected by 24 vertebrae, which form the spinal column. All nerves pass through it and go to all parts of the body.
Bad life habits and bad body postures cause the vertebrae to lose their linearity, mobility, or normal function.
When the phenomenon known as subluxation occurs, it causes back pain, sciatica, low back pain, herniated discs, muscle pain, and ailments in other parts of the body. Subluxations alter the functions of the nerves and cause disorders and imbalances in the organs they control.

Chiropractors use their hands to find the point where the vertebrae have deviations. Through a gentle, quick, and painless adjustment, they correct the displacement so that they return to their initial position. By maintaining an aligned spine, the nervous system will not be interfered with and all the organs of the body will function properly.
When a woman becomes pregnant she experiences many symptoms and physical changes. The body works for two beings, and for that, it is essential that its nervous system works correctly, without pinching.
Typical symptoms are nausea, headaches, and muscle pain, and a very common one that occurs in 30% of pregnant women is sciatica. It usually appears in the second trimester of pregnancy and is caused by the baby’s weight gain. The overload this places on the back can cause irritation of the sciatic nerve.

Some studies advise chiropractic adjustments before, during, and after pregnancy. It provides the mother with more energy and reduces the discomfort of pregnancy. The adjustments leave the spine free of interference and the baby receives all the information, this favors the baby’s development and improves the position in the uterus. If it is well positioned for birth, delivery time is reduced and it will be easier and less expensive for the mother, which translates into fewer caesarean sections and a greater number of natural births.
