Are you pregnant and considering chiropractic care? Do you want to know if chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy?
Well… you’re at the right place. Chiropractic care is considered relatively safe for pregnant women. Some women experience pregnancy-related back pain during pregnancy, especially during the last trimester. The risk of back pain during pregnancy is a result of a rapid increase in weight gain, which doesn’t allow the body to adapt to the changes. As a result, pregnant women may experience low back pain, pelvic pain, hip pain, and leg pain.
Below are some benefits you may expect during your pregnancy when receiving chiropractic care:
- relief of low back and pelvic pain
- ability to perform normal activities of daily living with ease
Often times pregnant women may experience difficulty sleeping due to experiencing back, pelvic, hip, or leg pain. Let the chiropractor assist you in providing relief, so you can sleep and move better.
