CHIROPRACTIC FOR PREGNANCY IN BOISE
Pregnancy causes many major changes, some of which can cause pain throughout the body. Many pregnant women seek chiropractic care in Boise for relief from: lower back pain, sciatica, leg cramps, and even constipation. These problems can stop you from performing daily tasks and can lead to difficulties during labor.
Chiropractic care at Harris Chiropractic of Boise is able to offer amazing relief for back pain throughout a pregnancy. Women often state that the physical birthing process was easier after receiving chiropractic treatment to aid their back pain. The article below offers an in-depth look at the pain caused by pregnancy and describes how chiropractic treatment can help.
PRENATAL CHIROPRACTIC IN BOISE
Throughout the process of carrying a baby to term, the mother's body must shift in order to allow the baby room to grow. This actually shifts the mother’s center of gravity forward towards the pelvis as the baby creates more weight in front of the body. As one can imagine, a significant amount of stress is put on the lower back and pelvis during these changes. Approaching the delivery date, the lower curve in the spinal column (lordotic curve) can deepen and result in serious and potentially dangerous injuries to the vertebral joints, sacrum, and hip joints.
The spinal cord contains nerves that send and receive signals from all over the body. Throughout the changes caused by pregnancy, the spine is compressed and stretched in various locations that can lead to irritation to the spinal cord and result in pain radiating throughout the body. Similarly, sciatica in pregnant women can cause pain in the lower back that radiates down the legs.
A pregnancy has the potential to cause shifts in the spine so great that they are not reversed naturally after the child is born. This can result in lasting pain while attempting to complete tasks that are essential to raising the child. Tasks such as breast-feeding, carrying the baby, or bending over can produce chronic pain if help is not sought out.
