PRENATAL CHIROPRACTIC IN NAMPA
During pregnancy there are many changes in a woman’s physiology that prepare her for labor and delivery. The most obvious change is the normal weight gain and growing belly as the baby grows. With an enlarged abdomen the center of gravity changes and places increased stress on the low back. As the baby and uterus grow together additional stress is placed on the mother’s pelvis. Over the course of 9 months this added stress can expose weaknesses in the mother’s low back and pelvis resulting in significant discomfort and even radiating pain into her legs. It is not uncommon for a woman to complain of pain in her pubic bone as well.
According to research, up to 7 out of 10 women deal with significant back pain during their pregnancy. As pregnancy progresses into the third trimester these symptoms can often continue to progress as well. If back pain isn’t enough, as the baby takes up more space additional symptoms, other than back pain, can result. Everything from cramping to digestive issues can accompany a difficult pregnancy.
