Prenatal Chiropractic & Lower Back Pain
Among all of the aches and pains that come with pregnancy, back pain is often the worst of them all. Even if you've never had back pain before, it can take hold during pregnancy. Lower back pain can inhibit your ability to move, making daily tasks difficult. If you need prenatal chiropractic care in College Station, Texas. Campion Chiropractic Clinic is here to help.
Pregnancy and Your Lower Back
As the baby grows inside you, the distribution of your weight changes. This can put extra pressure on your spine, joints, and discs disrupting its alignment. Spinal adjustment performed by a prenatal chiropractor can realign your spine, resulting in immediate pain relief. When the musculoskeletal system is out of alignment, it affects the entire body. Part of wellness is good spinal alignment for expecting mothers that allows pregnancy weight to be distributed evenly across mom’s spine, pelvis, and hips.
One reason that so many pregnant women deal with back pain is that they are unable to take any pain medication for the problem. Many medications can enter the baby's bloodstream, harming the baby. Chiropractic care is a great way to address prenatal lower back pain because it is safe, natural, and non-invasive to both mom and baby.
In addition to spinal adjustments, our chiropractor can teach you specific exercises and stretches that support our chiropractic care and help you maintain proper alignment. These exercises and stretches are soothing to the body and are a great way to practice self-care during this important, yet often stressful time.
