Pregnancy can be a tough time for a woman, with hundreds of little physical and hormonal changes occurring over the course of nine months. One of the changes we see affecting women most is the change to your centre of gravity (your growing belly). This change in gravity causes you to arch your back and makes it difficult to perform your daily tasks the usual way. This can lead to unhealthy positions when you stand or sleep, leading to damaged joints or a misaligned spine.
During pregnancy, the pelvis changes to accommodate for your growing baby and this can cause discomfort in your pelvis often diagnosed as SPD or symphysis pubis disorder. This can also affect the joints of the spine.
Much of the back and hip pain experienced during pregnancy is caused by these issues. However, here at Oceanside Chiropractic we do not want you to experience this, that’s why we recommend regular check-ups during your pregnancy to make sure your spine and pelvis are functioning and moving appropriately. One study found that over 75% of pregnant women experienced substantial pain relief after regular chiropractic sessions.
Pregnancy is a one-of-a-kind experience, but that’s no reason to live with the pain. If you are interested in how we at Oceanside Chiropractic can assist you with your pain or discomfort, or if you would like to minimise the coming back pain as your pregnancy moves forward, then give us a call at Oceanside Chiropractic Perth today.
We offer a safe and effective physical therapy that will make your life during and after your pregnancy that much better. Help ensure that you experience all the joys of pregnancy and childbirth, not just the woes.
