Back Pain in Pregnancy

Back pain is a common complaint during pregnancy. In fact, about 50% of pregnant women suffer from back pain. A woman's body changes to accommodate the growing baby and in preparation for delivery. For example: alterations in hormones (such as relaxin which causes joint laxity), postural changes, changes in the center of gravity, stretching of ligaments, and circulatory adjustments all predispose a pregnant woman to back pain. Chiropractic care for pregnancy related back pain is a natural and drug-free alternative, and many expectant mothers experience the relief they are seeking.
