Pregnancy is an exciting time! It can also bring many unexpected aches and pains along the way.
Symptoms should be discussed with your OB/GYN. Keep in mind as well that many pregnancy symptoms can be treated naturally and safely with back pain treatment in Logan, Utah.
Here are some of the most common pregnancy pains that can be treated by your chiropractor.
Round Ligament Pain
Round ligament pain is one of the most common pregnancy conditions. As the uterus grows, round ligaments also stretch and can cause sharp pain in the abdomen, pelvis, and even the lower back.
Nausea, or morning sickness, is a very common pregnancy symptom. There are many tips and tricks to relieving pregnancy nausea. A chiropractor may be able to help reduce vomiting and nausea by realigning your spine to improve your nervous system function. This can help balance your hormones and improve digestive issues, too.
Lower Back Pain
Increased stress on the lumbar spine and shifts in your center of gravity can cause back pain throughout pregnancy. Muscles tighten and ligaments shift to prepare for your growing baby, and the pain may range from mild to severe depending on your daily activity.
Labor and Delivery
Routine chiropractic adjustments can help ensure your pelvis, spine, and hips are aligned properly and functioning as they should. Boosted nerve health through chiropractic adjustments can also help with a faster labor and easier delivery with less discomfort.
Sciatic Nerve Pain
The sciatic nerve can be compressed during pregnancy. As the baby grows and the uterus puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, low back and sciatic pain can permeate down the back and into the legs.
