Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy

Our Sacramento Chiropractor Helps Women Experiencing Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy

Pregnant woman with low back pain

There a wide number of hormonal and physiological reasons why women who are pregnant experience lower back pain, including ligamentous laxity, changing body mechanics (including a more forward center of gravity), and overall increased strain on the spine and associated connective tissues. Sacramento chiropractor Dr. Gregg Anderson, D.C.  has worked with hundreds of expecting mothers in his career, and he's committed to always providing optimal care for this special and diverse population of women. 

Here are 5 Reasons to Consult with a Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is not only safe for pregnant women and their unborn children, but it can be immensely beneficial as well. For instance, as noted by the American Pregnancy Association, chiropractic care can potentially help expecting mothers by:

  1. Reducing neck, shoulder, back, hip, and leg pain
  2. Alleviating morning sickness
  3. Promoting mental wellness and stress relief
  4. Reducing time in labor 
  5. Preventing breech deliveries and C-sections

Services to Relieve Lower Back Pain in Women Who Are Expecting 

All of the chiropractic care services we offer at Anderson Chiropractic are safe for people from all walks of life, but we can and do modify certain techniques in order to make sure that they are safe for both baby and mom. For instances, many of the adjustments we perform to relieve lower back pain in women who are pregnant may be performed with specific setups on the treatment table, including dropped tables or the patient in side-lying. 

Additionally, there is a specific chiropractic adjustment known as the Webster technique. This particular adjustment focuses on the sacrum and when performed can facilitate improved nervous system function, pelvic alignment, pelvic floor muscle function. It can even relieve stress and torsion on the uterus and help prevent breech babies.
