Pregnancy doesn’t have to be painful! One of the reasons we experience pain during pregnancy is that the body releases peaks of the hormone relaxin which, as the name suggests, leads to loosening or relaxation of the body’s ligaments and muscles. Relaxin is a great thing because it allows the pelvis and uterus to prepare for the birth of the child. Unfortunately it can also cause a lot of trouble, amplifying spinal problems that the almost-mum may not even know she had, leading to pain and discomfort.
Many Mums-to-be find themselves struggling with :
- Lower back pain
- Upper back pain
- Rib pain
- Neck pain
- Low abdominal or groin pain (especially in the third trimester)
Women are often told these symptoms are normal during pregnancy. In Brisbane Natural Health’s chiropractor Dr Tressa’s experience, there is a big difference between what is normal and what is common. It is common for a woman to have back pain during pregnancy, but that doesn’t mean it’s normal. In most cases, this pain can be removed or eased dramatically.
Gentle and safe chiropractic care helps to balance and stabilise the body, resulting in pain relief and comfort.
