Low Back Pain During Pregnancy
Sure getting pregnant is the easy part, you might even have had some fun while trying. But once you are pregnant, your body is going to experience a whole lot of stress. Which is a lot less stressful than the labor that eventually is going to arrive. Don’t put your feet up yet. You have to then carry a 9 pound baby that is going to get heavier by the day.
What is a mother to do was a popular question for some product on T.V. when I was a kid, which was a real long time ago. I used to say post partum depression was not a psychological condition at all, it was real. A real shortage of nutrients that junior took directly out of your body. Nutrients that were vital for good physical and mental health.
A Chiropractors View of Pregnancy
As a highly skilled chiropractor for over 40 years I’ve offered prenatal care for that low back pain that mom’s develop, but can’t take any drugs for. I’ve also helped many women with post partum chiropractic care. What even is that?
After the oxytocin hormone from your pituitary gland helped relax your pelvic ligaments to make a more suitable birth canal, your hips, back, and overall pelvis can become unstable. Left that way, you can develop a disease called Osteitis Condensans Illii. Osteitis condensans ilii (OCI) is one of the benign etiologies of chronic axial low back pain. Most of the time, OCI is an incidental finding on plain X-ray with ileal sclerosis. OCI is predominantly found in women of childbearing age in the prepartum or postpartum period. It can also present in nulliparous women. This is a fancy way of saying that your Sacro-Iliac joints can become arthritic because of the extra wear and tear due to the loose ligaments creating unstable joints. It is wise to realign your pelvis and spine after delivery.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy (In Home / House Calls)
Women that utilize chiropractic care during pregnancy and after find it much easier to care for their baby/babies. The adjustments have been found to balance the mother’s pelvis so she and her baby have a better probability of a safe and comfortable birth process.
Chiropractic Care is gentle, effective and a natural support for your pregnancy. You deserve to have a healthier more enjoyable pregnancy. I understand that it is not exactly easy to get to a chiropractor’s office during all this and that is why I’m make house calls and deliver you skilled expert care in the convenience of your own home. I’ve been doing this for so long now, that Google usually rates me the number one mobile chiropractor.
