Pregnancy causes many major changes, some of which can cause pain throughout the body.

Chiropractic care at South Austin Chiro is able to offer amazing relief for back pain throughout a pregnancy. Women often state that the physical birthing process was easier after receiving chiropractic treatment to aid their back pain. The article below offers an in-depth look at the pain caused by pregnancy and describes how chiropractic treatment can help.

Prenatal Chiropractic in South Austin

Up to 90% of women have low back pain during pregnancy and more than a third of them rate their pain as severe. Pregnancy is already challenging without low back pain and sciatica. Antepartum back pain is caused by functional stressors combined with hormones meant to loosen ligaments and joints for birth. Unfortunately, left untreated roughly half of these women will still have pain 6 months postpartum and 20% beyond 3 years!

Chiropractic care demonstrates a large benefit for pregnant patients, and 80% report improvement in other symptoms including; heartburn, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, insomnia, neck pain, even increased sense of smell. Research even shows that Chiropractic manipulation can lead to shorter labor times.

Labor and Birth

Many women seek care after hearing from friends about the correction of breech position babies with Chiropractic care. There are specific techniques in the Chiropractic field that we are trained to perform that are meant to address neuro biomechanical pelvic function and may have positive effects on multiple causes of difficult labor including pelvic contractions and baby malposition. Sacral misalignment and specific muscular tightening and torsion may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.
