How to Treat Aches and Pains During Pregnancy with Chiropractic

Written By Destination Wellness on July 4, 2019

Pregnant woman Nothing in life is black and white. Yes, pregnancy is certainly a beautiful experience but it also involves plenty of painful changes.

As an added bonus, your pain medication options are limited so you need to find natural pain relief options.

Fortunately, you can effectively treat your aches and pains during pregnancy with chiropractic care from an experienced professional – without drugs or surgery.

Where is All This Pain Coming From?

Over 68% of women will suffer from back pain at some point during their pregnancy. Even if you don’t gain much weight, a few extra pounds in one location puts additional stress and pressure on your spine and posture.

For about 30% of these women, the pain is so intense that it interferes with their daily routines.

We can’t forget hip pain either: your body starts to produce the hormone relaxin which prepares your hips for birth. When your hips and cervix soften and expand, this can produce pain at any point during your pregnancy.

Sciatica – a shooting pain from your buttock down your leg – is also extremely common in pregnant women.

Treat Your Aches and Pains During Pregnancy with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is extremely safe and effective for pregnant women when done by an experienced professional. One study found that 75% of women experienced pain relief after receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy.

Dr. Richard Allen has helped countless pregnant women throughout the Manalapan community ease their aches and pains.

Dr. Allen will provide personalized treatment with spinal adjustments to improve your range of motion and create a healthy environment for your joints to thrive. He will also recommend stretches and at-home exercises to keep the pain at bay as your body changes.
