Causes of Back Pain During Pregnancy

Back pain is a common occurrence during pregnancy. Unlike many other common side effects of pregnancy you don’t have to grin and bear it.

Normal weight gain, especially in the later phases of pregnancy puts pressure on your spinal curve, particularly the lower back which can pinch the joints of your spine together causing pain and inflammation.

Abdominal muscles are key factors in maintaining spinal health. As these muscles stretch to accommodate your growing baby they lose their ability to help strengthen and support the spine.

Normal hormones associated with pregnancy cause the muscles and ligaments to loosen which is necessary for birth but affect the entire body.

Any of these changes alone or in combination alter how your body functions structurally and can result in back, hip, pelvic and groin pain.

The good news is that like all side effects of pregnancy these changes are temporary.

There are steps you can take to manage the pain on your own. For cases in which pain becomes distracting, chiropractors can offer a safe and effective alternative.

Chiropractors specialize in treating musculo-skeletal conditions and in particular spinal conditions including those related to pregnancy. With tables and therapeutic options that take a pregnancy into consideration you’ll find chiropractic care a safe option for managing pregnancy related back pain.
