Back pain is widespread among pregnant women, especially in the later months when the time of birth arrives. The pain can sometimes be so severe that it affects the everyday routines of living every day.
Back pain and leg cramps are the most common complaints reported.
The added weight of pregnancy can put a lot of stress on the back, hips, knees, and ankles. Good posture can be challenging with the extra bundle a woman carries with the weight being disturbed all in the front of the body. These changes in posture can cause pain and discomfort in the lower back.
It may be worth considering chiropractic care to reduce the pain you are experiencing during pregnancy.
Parkway also has Massage Therapy available, which may be an option to relieve the areas experiencing stress. Stress can come in the form of physical stress or other tension of the body from anxiety.
Another alternative therapy is Acupuncture, which can minimize stress levels and improve blood circulation. If your pregnancy keeps less active, it is essential to maintain good circulation.
