According to a study by the Department of Obstetrics at the University of Crete, over 50% of pregnant women are likely to suffer from low back pains. Particularly common to pregnant women, pregnancy-related back pains impede one’s ability to move around and perform daily tasks and chores.
During pregnancy, the mother’s body gives space and adjusts to the child developing inside the womb, which oftentimes result in the misalignment of the mother’s spine and pelvis. The misaligned spine and pelvis are one of the most common causes of pregnancy-related back pains. But you don’t have to endure the pain, seek help from a chiropractor doctor in your area. Chiropractic care and treatment is one of the safest and most effective ways to alleviate pregnancy-related back pains.
Chiropractor doctor Dr. Michael Grossman of Grossman Chiropractic Clinic will do a thorough checkup and physical assessment to determine the most suitable treatment for each patient. Through chiropractic care, you will be relieved of the back pain, as well as any pain you’re experiencing in the hips or joints. The treatment can lead to less stressful and smoother childbirth for both mother and child.
Chiropractic Treatment for Pregnancy-Related Back Pain
Chiropractic care is a non-surgical medical aid that centralizes on realigning and manipulating the affected parts of the body to return to its natural and balanced condition. In addition, the treatment aims to alleviate muscle tension and swelling. Although the treatment may sound dangerous, it is highly regarded as safe and effective for pregnant women.
A particular sort of chiropractic treatment—flexion-distraction decompression—is proven to be the optimal chiropractic treatment for pregnant women. The said treatment was proven to be beneficial without compromising safety, as reported by the doctors and professors at the National University of Health Science of Illinois.
Chiropractic treatment is ideal for pregnant women as it does not require any drug medications that may harm the baby. That’s why chiropractic care and treatment is highly recommended by obstetricians.
The treatment begins with a thorough evaluation (health history checks, physical examinations, and advanced diagnostic testings) by Dr. Michael Grossman to ensure the safety of both parent and child. After the test results are received, Dr. Grossman will provide a diagnosis and apply the ideal chiropractic care and treatment for the patient. He will also provide medical advice and instructions to expedite the healing process.
