During pregnancy a woman’s pelvis is put under a lot of stress because of the additional weight in front causing a lot of pain on the lower back. There are several physiological and endocrinological changes to a woman’s body such as Protruding abdomen and increased back curve, Pelvic changes and Postural adaptations.
Making sure that the pelvis is well balanced is one of the most important things during pregnancy, not only to avoid pain but promote healthy movement. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy could provide benefits for pregnant women by helping them maintain a healthier pregnancy, relieve back, neck or joint pain. The chiropractor’s ability to realign and, in many cases, relax the ligaments and muscles in your pelvis has led to what is now known as the Webster Technique, a method that helps breech babies to turn themselves, naturally.
