Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy

Many women experience varying degrees of lower back pain during pregnancy that may increase as the growing fetus develops. This condition can usually be attributed to the shift in the center of gravity that takes place as your body undergoes changes which can result in joint strain and pain that radiates through the lower back and down to the buttocks and legs. Other issues that arise during pregnancy that can be addressed by chiropractic therapy include disc herniation and various nerve irritations that manifest as chronic pain in the back and shoulders.

Prenatal Chiropractic Techniques

Licensed Zachary Spine & Sports Rehabilitation chiropractors provide gentle prenatal techniques using very low pressure and completely avoid the abdomen. Prenatal chiropractic treatment plans may also include balancing and aligning the pelvis, helping the body to adapt to pelvic changes and careful adjustments to compensate for the increased back curve.
