Pregnancy is one life’s most marvelous gifts. Unfortunately, sometimes pregnancy causes back pain. Most women and obstetricians are very conscious of the effects of drugs during pregnancy. As a result many women suffer back pain and sciatica during the later terms of pregnancy. The good news is modern chiropractors are well trained to help pregnant women with their back pain and leg pain!
Chiropractic care is such a wonderful alternative to suffering from back pain and leg pain caused by pregnancy. According to the American Pregnancy Association: “There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
As a chiropractor, I am blessed to be able to help Sacramento area women have happier pregnancies, and often, easier deliveries.
