3 Tips for Easing Back Pain While Pregnant

By Virginia Laird

Pregnancy is no picnic. Some enjoy a less painful pregnancy than others, but I have yet to meet one mother who has experienced no pain and no unfriendly symptoms during pregnancy. Inevitably, there is no way to prevent all back pain during pregnancy. Chiropractors can suggest several tips to help ease the pain that you may have. These suggestions may even help in preventing some of the pain and can help your body adapt to the changes your body will undoubtedly experience while pregnant.

Sit Up Straight

Even those who are not pregnant should practice sitting up straight. It is good for the body and your back. Good posture can help prevent spinal injury. Some studies suggest that poor posture can encourage poor health in later years of life. Sit up straight and tall. This helps support the ever-growing belly, as well as fights off back pain. Your chiropractor can offer stretches and exercises that can make sitting up straight seem a little more natural over time. 

Get Some Exercise

Exercise is key. Having been a pregnant lady a few times in my life, I can attest that there are times the thought of exercise made my back hurt. However, small and simple exercises and stretches can help the body adapt to the shifting and changing that takes place. This can actually help manage the pain caused by the movement of the shifting hips and ribs. Your chiropractor can suggest little tips to help your body make the adjustments more easily. With this advice on how to help your pregnant body change, you may begin to enjoy your pregnancy. 

Sleep With a Pillow Between Your Knees

Sleep is hard to come by while pregnant. There is no doubt about this statement. Chiropractors recommend sleeping with a pillow between your knees (if you are a side sleeper). This can help decrease the stress on the spine. Making certain your body is in ideal sleep position can help you get a good night of sleep. For more helpful tips and tools to get a better night of sleep, visit your chiropractor. Routine visits to your chiropractor can help your body adjust to pregnancy and can allow you to enjoy it with fewer interruptions to your sleeping.

Your chiropractor can offer more advice and suggestions on how to combat back pain during pregnancy. Put pregnancy pain behind you by utilizing routine chiropractic visits.
