Tips For Reducing Pain During Pregnancy

There are many contributing factors that can cause pain and discomfort during a pregnancy. Physical Changes such as Weight Gain, Protruding Belly, Relaxing Ligaments, Postural Changes, Pelvic Changes, and Center of Gravity Change create a recipe for pregnancy pain.

  • Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments bring the body back into proper alignment and balance. This allows the nervous system to communicate more efficiently and the body to move more naturally.
  • Pelvic Adjustments can allow more room for the baby to develop and prepare for delivery.
  • Forego the High Heels and Flip Flops during pregnancy. Instead choose footwear that offers comfort and good support.
  • Bend Your Knees While Lifting to prevent strain on your back.
  • Maintain a Healthy Diet that is Low in Sodium. Your baby requires additional nutrients from your body that should come from fruits, vegetables and lean protein. Excess Sodium can lead to inflammation and pain due to water retention.
  • Good Posture while walking, standing, sitting and sleeping reduces stress on your body. Try sleeping on your side with a pillow placed between your knees to relieve pressure on your lower back.
