Back pain is very common among pregnant women especially in the later months when the time to birth is arriving. The pain can sometimes be so severe that it affects the normal 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 difficult with the extra bundle a woman is carrying 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 it to consider Chiropractic care to reduce the pain you are experiencing during pregnancy.
Parkway also has Massage Therapy available and that may be an option to get relief to the areas that are 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 be used to minimize stress levels and improve blood circulation in the body and if your pregnancy is keeping less active it is important to maintain good circulation.
