Chiropractic for a Comfortable Pregnancy

Low-back pain is one of the most common complaints your doctor at Chiropractic for Life hears from pregnant patients.  Over half of pregnant women experience back pain at some point — not a surprising statistic since the physical changes a woman undergoes during pregnancy place an enormous burden on her spine and pelvis.  When added to the other discomforts that pregnancy can bring, back pain seriously interferes with daily activities for moms-to-be.

Tips to relieve back pain while you are expecting:

  • Maintain regular chiropractic care, even if you are not in pain.
  • Place a pillow between your knees and sleep on your side to relieve stress on your lower back.
  • Stick with flat or low-heeled shoes for safety and back comfort while your center of gravity is in flux.
  • Give extra attention to workplace ergonomics.
  • Exercise to keep you back muscles strong and better able to support your changing body.  Walking, swimming and stationary cycling are good low-impact choices during pregnancy.

This chiropractic office enjoys being a part of the care team for moms-to-be.  Whether you just got a positive result on your pregnancy test or are due next week, call today and experience the difference chiropractic can make in your pregnancy.Dr. Barbara Smith
