Natural Solutions for Pregnancy Issues

During pregnancy many women suffer from low back pain as a woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of her pelvis as the belly expands. This may cause stress or impingement to the pelvis and lower back. As the baby grows in size, the added weight causes the curvature of her lower back facet joints. In turn this places added stress and then pain. Any prior spinal weaknesses or problems tend to come back early on in pregnancy, often leading to pain and difficulty performing normal daily activities.

More than 50% of all expectant mothers will develop low-back pain during their pregnancies. Obstetricians usually choose not to give medications as they may interfere with fetal growth. For this reason, the simplist solution is Chiropractic care, exercises, massage given throughout pregnancy which may relieve and preferably prevent pain and discomfort.
