It's estimated that over 85% of women experience back pain during pregnancy.
Why? Well, as a woman enters her second or third trimester, the growing baby pulls her center of gravity forward, which in turn increases the curve of her low back. That increased amount of stress on the low back often leads to back pain.
Why It Matters
Spinal adjustments are considered a highly safe and effective option for the care of pregnancy-related low back pain. A recent study found that patients who received care from both an OB-GYN and chiropractor had greater reductions in pain and improved quality of life than those who only saw an OB-GYN.
An amazing 90% of women report having a high level of satisfaction with chiropractic care during their pregnancies. So, if pregnancy is a part of your life in some way, we hope you'll consider adding a chiropractor to your birth team.
