Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Jacksonville
Pregnancy can be an exciting time, filled with happiness and anticipation, but for nearly three-quarters of pregnant women, it can also be a time of chronic back pain and discomfort as their body struggles to support the additional weight. Many women find their regular daily routines disrupted due to pain which can be difficult to relieve without professional care. Think about it. Your spine has had a lifetime to get used to supporting your body in a specific and predictable way, then everything changes.
When weight gain occurs – especially the rapid weight gain that typically occurs with pregnancy – the stress and strain on your core muscles and your spine increase as they try to adjust and provide support. In addition to causing muscles aches, the additional strain can result in your spine being pulled out of proper alignment, causing acute pain that can involve the buttocks, hips, legs and feet.
Pregnant women who report their back pain to an obstetrician, are often told that it is a normal part of pregnancy. But in fact with proper care including massage and regular chiropractic adjustments, your pregnancy-related pain and discomfort can be eliminated or effectively managed.
