Discover a holistic approach to treating pregnancy related back pain at its root cause with chiropractic care.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! I understand that back pain can be quite uncomfortable during this special time. But don’t worry, I am here to help you understand the common causes of those pesky backaches and help you take care of yourself as you embark on this beautiful journey towards motherhood.
What causes pregnancy back pain?
During pregnancy, several factors contribute to back pain. Firstly, hormonal changes can loosen the ligaments and joints in your pelvic area, which can put strain on your lower back. Additionally, as your baby grows, the extra weight in front of your body shifts your center of gravity and puts more pressure on your spine. Another reason for back pain could be muscle imbalance or weakness. As certain muscles become stretched or strained due to a changing posture, other muscles may have to work harder to compensate for this imbalance. But fear not! There are ways to alleviate and prevent back pain during pregnancy.
The Webster Technique: A solution for back and pelvic pain
The Webster Technique is a chiropractic adjustment specifically designed to address pregnancy back pain. It focuses on the alignment of the pelvis and sacrum, which can become misaligned due to the changes in a woman’s body during pregnancy. By gently adjusting the sacrum, this technique helps restore balance and proper function to the pelvis. This can alleviate pressure on surrounding nerves and muscles, reducing discomfort and pain in the lower back and pelvic area. The benefits of the Webster Technique go beyond just pain relief. By optimizing pelvic alignment, it can also improve overall comfort during pregnancy, enhance fetal positioning for a smoother delivery, and even contribute to shorter labor times.
What can you expect at your chiropractic appointment for pregnancy back pain?
As a pregnant patient, the ultimate goal is to help you alleviate your pain as quickly as possible. The Webster Technique will be performed to create better mobility in the sacrum and the rest of the body. In addition, you will be provided with education on how to stand, sit, and move in ways that can help alleviate this increased stress. Additionally, you receive advice on exercises that can keep you comfortable, mobile, and reduce stress as your body goes through pregnancy-related changes.
