YES! A properly aligned spine can help make pregnancy and delivery more comfortable.
Back pain during pregnancy has both mechanical and hormonal causes. Mechanically your centre of gravity moves forward as the baby develops which causes an increase in the curve of your low back and thus the load on the joints, ligaments and muscles of the spine and pelvis. Hormonally the body produces greater amounts of pregnancy hormones which results in a loosening of ligaments and joint capsules.
Bearsden Chiropractic in Glasgow offer a safe, gentle and drug free alternative for the relief of pregnancy-related discomforts including pelvic girdle pain, lower back pain and sciatica.
The treatment restores normal function to the body and helps relieve the joints from the added stresses at this time.
This can result in less pain for the mother-to-be and more room for the developing baby so that both mother and baby experience less physical and emotional stress.
