Pregnancy is an amazing experience for women but many times back labor pain comes with it. Other symptoms like migraines, sciatica, hip pain and stress can occur during pregnancy. It’s important to seek natural back labor pain relief without medications.
Most women will feel some degree of soreness, cramping or lower back pain during pregnancy but about 1/4th of
women will have back labor which is severe pain that doesn’t ease up. In fact it usually gets worse with contractions.
Back labor many times is caused by poor positioning of the baby or those women who usually have painful menstrual cycles. There are also many changes occurring to the mother’s body as the baby develops and grows. The mother will gain weight and changes in posture put additional stress on the muscles and joints. There are also hormonal changes to loosen the ligaments and supporting muscles in preparing for the growing baby and birthing process but can lead to pain and migraines.
Back labor and other symptoms can make it difficult to sleep, move around and affect activities of daily living. It’s important to avoid medications because they have side effects that can affect you and your baby’s health. Chiropractic is a safe, effective and NATURAL way to manage and treat pain during pregnancy. Research shows that chiropractic adjustments can substantially reduce labor back pain, pain in the hips and pelvis, sciatica, relieve stress as well as the intensity and frequency of headaches.
Chiropractors use gentle adjustments to relieve pressure on any pinched nerves and eases stress placed on ligaments and joints. There is also a technique called Webster Technique to help correct the positioning of the baby even if in breech presentation.
Chiropractic does more than provide natural back labor pain relief and other pain. It helps to improve baby position in utero enabling an easier, safer delivery for both mother and newborn. Chiropractors who adjust pregnant women not only provide natural back labor pain relief but help maintain optimal health and wellness.
