Pregnancy related low back pain is common

Lower back pain during pregnancy is quite common. In fact, between 50-75% of all pregnant women will experience lower back pain. The pain is usually caused from rapid changes in weight, posture, gait and hormones. Obviously, the body goes through dramatic changes when you are pregnant. During pregnancy, a lot of women feel pressure due to the growing baby and this extra pressure can cause a great deal of pain.

The presence of the baby makes it difficult to do manual adjustments on the muscular and skeletal frame. This is why the tonal adjustments of NeuroImpulse Protocol (NIP) are especially effective for the pregnant woman. Dr Chris Scott is one of a handful of Australian chiropractors certified in NIP technique. “We have had ladies come in for treatments right up to a week or two before delivery.”
