Back Pain During Pregnancy
About 50% of pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy. This proportion is even higher during childbirth. This often involves a low nagging back pain. The pain can occur after sitting for a long time. The pain can also occur after standing or walking. It is even possible that the pain occurs in bed.
Often people think of pelvic instability and go to the doctor.
However, a chiropractor as an expert of the back and spine is the appropriate specialist to address the problems. A chiropractor can keep the spine and pelvis mobile, reducing pain and stiffness.
Deze technieken zijn veilig voor moeder en kind. Door de juiste stand van het bekken kan het kind in zijn optimale positie liggen. Dit heeft een positieve invloed op de groei en ontwikkeling van het ongeboren kind.
Preparation for Childbirth
Research has shown that with chiropractic assistance during pregnancy, childbirth can be faster and more trouble-free. The explanation lies in the better condition and position of the spine and pelvis. Both structures are essential during childbirth!
By keeping these in good condition already during pregnancy through chiropractic care, childbirth can go more smoothly.
Less pain and discomfort
Pain is often a signal from the body that something needs to change. Think of headaches when you don't drink enough water or back pain when you have bad posture.
Also during pregnancy the body gives signals, probably even more. Because of the changes during pregnancy, there may be pains because the body is in a different situation.
Through chiropractic care, the body can better adjust and cope with these circumstances. When subluxations are prevented or taken care of in a timely manner, they can be corrected before greater discomfort occurs. By taking optimal chiropractic care of the body, the body has less need for change and will therefore signal less pain and discomfort.
