Back pain during pregnancy
Back pain is a common ailment that affects 50% of pregnant women. The severity can range from mere nuisance level to being a major disability. There are a number of potential causes of back pain during pregnancy that range from loosening of the joints due to the action of certain hormones, to the relatively quick increase in weight that accompanies a developing baby.
Back pain during pregnancy can be associated with pain radiating down the leg, commonly referred to as ´sciatica´, and in most cases it can be dealt with effectively, if the right approach is taken. Because the adaptation of the body is considerable during the pregnancy, the unbalance of the pelvis, spine, muscles, often incur back pain, buttock pain, hip pain, pubic pain, and stabbing pain in the abdomen.
At Orewa Chiropractic, we establish a treatment strategy that is personalised to each patient. This is because there are a wide variety of factors that can conspire to create pain in the lower back that are unique to pregnancy. These factors must be detected and treated as they affect each individual.
Backache or back pain during pregnancy usually commences by the fifth month of pregnancy, when the body undergoes structural changes to accommodate the growing child inside. The pain is usually associated with soreness and stiffness. Although a common occurrence, back pain during pregnancy should be addressed as soon as possible and managed throughout the pregnancy.
