Pregnancy Chiropractor Melbourne

A happy moment in a woman’s life is to hear from the doctor that she is pregnant. After all, conceiving and delivering a baby may make her complete. However, the expecting mother may go through hormonal and physical changes during the pregnancy period. Whilst she is carrying the baby in her womb, the weight of the infant may put pressure on the spine and cause pain. There is also a probability of misalignment in the pelvis and back issues which can may cause problems after birth for the mother. Chiropractic care during and after pregnancy may help with some of these issues.

In my experience of  over 30 years, Chiropractic care may provide an effective means of easing various issues arising during pregnancy. Such issues as muscle spasms, headaches, neck and back pain, may respond to gentle specific appropriate techniques.

What causes back pain in pregnancy?  Many body changes occur over the gestational period. Here are some reasons:

1. Release of pregnancy related hormones help relax joints and soften ligaments. This allows the baby to grow in your womb. Joints may move more than usual. This may cause extra strain on your back and pelvic joints. In turn this may result in muscle spasms.

2. Increased postural stress caused by a growing baby in pregnancy and a shift of the centre  of body gravity, may cause increased strain on abdominal and lower back muscles resulting in increased strain on the lower back.

on the sciatic nerve and this may result in lower back pain and associated radiating ache or numbness down the leg.

3. Headaches may be caused by increased emotional stress and muscle spasms during pregnancy.

4. Towards the end of pregnancy the positioning of the growing baby may cause further pressure and compression resulting in various musculoskeletal aches and pains.
