While pregnancy is a time of joy and new beginnings, it is also often a time of stress and discomfort. Growing a human being inside your body will always cause some discomfort, but in our experience at Mapleview Chiropractic Centre, much of that discomfort can be alleviated with chiropractic care. To help persuade you to seek out help, in this article, we’ll be going over three reasons to see a pregnancy chiropractor.
- Help with Sciatic Nerve Pain. One reason to see a pregnancy chiropractor is that doing so can help alleviate sciatic nerve pain. The sciatic nerve runs through the pelvis and thighs, and the growth of the uterus during pregnancy can compress the surrounding muscle or the nerve itself, causing pain in that area. If you are experiencing sciatic nerve pain, our team at Mapleview Chiropractic Centre can help alleviate it and make you more comfortable.
- Help with Lower Back Pain. Another common side effect of pregnancy is lower back pain, which is caused by the weight of the baby putting stress on the lumbar spine. A pregnancy chiropractor can help adjust the spine and surrounding tissue to alleviate lower back pain.
- Help with Round Ligament Pain. A third reason to see a pregnancy chiropractor is for help with round ligament pain. Your round ligaments connect the uterus to the abdominal wall, and as the uterus expands, these ligaments stretch, which often causes pain on the sides of the abdomen or around the pubic bone or labia. Fortunately, you don’t have to put up with this pain, but can instead come see us at Mapleview Chiropractic Centre to get the relief you deserve.
