15 Jun Nine Months of Bliss
Going through 3 trimesters and nearly 9 full months of carrying a baby is a long, long, long time. Even just a few months can seem like an eternity if you’re a mom dealing with pregnancy-related low back pain. We’ve got great news for you – it doesn’t need to be that way! Chiropractic care has helped millions of expecting mothers feel better than ever, before, during and after their pregnancies.
Why it Matters:
Between the extra weight, fatigue, and pain, pregnancy can be tough on a woman’s body. However, Chiropractic care can dramatically improve an expecting mom’s quality of life. The best part? Chiropractic is effective AND safe!
- Drastic hormone changes occur during pregnancy that affect a woman’s musculoskeletal system.
- The hormone relaxin loosens the ligaments of her pelvis and spine.
- The instability and loosening of these ligaments can cause her back and sciatica pain.
