Tips to Relieve Back Pain During Pregnancy

Did you know… an estimated 85% of woman experience back pain during their pregnancies?

Bottom Line
Why? As a woman enters the second or third trimester of her pregnancy, her growing baby pulls her body’s center of gravity forward, which in turn increases the curve of her low back. That increased amount of stress on the low back often leads to pregnancy induced pain.

Why It Matters
Spinal adjustments are considered a highly safe, effective, non-invasive, and evidence-based option for relief from pregnancy-related back pain. In fact, Chiropractors often also provide specific exercise and stretching recommendations to help ensure lasting results.

Next Steps
If you or someone you know is expecting, reducing stress, staying active, and finding relief from pain are all important. An amazing 90% of women report a high level of satisfaction with receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy, so it’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular and safe healthcare choices for expecting mums!
