Chiropractic Relieves Tiresome Pregnancy Pains

By Chris Brown

During pregnancy, the body undergoes a complete overhaul that causes an array of changes, including new dietary desires and irritating chronic pains. The most common pain complaints source the pelvis, hips, and back. These pains arise due to changes in weight balance and physical orientation of the woman's body throughout the phases of pregnancy. Chiropractic can be utilized to treat these pains affordably and efficiently, using manipulation techniques to relieve pressure upon the skeletal and nervous systems.

Problems of Chronic Pain During Pregnancy

While it is always important to see your obstetrician anytime new pains arise during pregnancy, hip and back pains are very common for pregnant women. While pelvic pain frequently begins during early pregnancy, as one's bones and ligaments shift to prepare for birth, it can increase unbearably as the pregnancy progresses. The added weight of the growing child and expanding uterus can press painfully onto the pelvis and bladder. Additionally, sciatica (a radiating pain that shoots from the lower back through the hips and legs) is common in the second and third trimesters. It is caused when the uterus presses against the sciatic nerve. Mainstream doctors usually prescribe physical therapy stretches and light pain medications (such as acetaminophen). However, chiropractic has shown to be an effective and safe treatment for pregnant women facing these painful problems.

The Vital Role of Chiropractic to Treat Pregnancy Pain

Reductions in pain intensity following chiropractic manipulation has been found in many studies, including a comprehensive review, into back and pelvic pregnancy pain. These findings offer a potential solution for those suffering from the endless shooting pain that is keeping them sleepless at night and limited during the day. It allows expectant mothers to avoid pain medications, as even "safe" pain medications will process through your entire system and eventually reach your growing child. As a paper titled "Optimizing Pain Relief During Pregnancy Using Manual Therapy" concluded, chiropractic manipulation has an increasing amount of scientific evidence to support its safety and efficacy when used on pregnant women.
