Pregnancy Back Pain

Here at Swansea Chiropractic Clinic we are one of the few chiropractors in Wales specialising in treating pregnant women and, perhaps more importantly, have extensive experience in doing so. If you are having trouble with pregnancy back pain – don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal for many women to experience this.

Causes

Back pain in pregnancy is usually caused through a number of factors: a change in posture; increased pressure on the discs; hormonal changes; a shifted centre of gravity and uterine expansion. One, some or all of these factors can often result in lower back pain, and although it’s nothing to worry about, it does bother many pregnant women and can be quite debilitating.

Benefits

Scientific research that you can find here and here has shown that women who have undergone chiropractic treatment during pregnancy are less likely to suffer back pain during labour. The adjustment is completely safe, and includes a multitude of benefits such as:-
  • Relieving back, neck and joint pain
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Pelvic alignment – promoting the optimal position for babies at birth
  • Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
  • Treatment is perfectly safe, and we use specialised equipment to ensure the comfort of our pregnant patients and to get the best results. We then give expert advice on exercises to help them through the term of their pregnancy and ensure an enjoyable experience, not a painful one.
