Studies have found that about 80% of all women during pregnancy will develop low back pain at some point during their pregnancy. Just one why pregnancy chiropractic is key to the safety of mom and baby during pregnancy. This pain is especially true during the third trimester during which the baby’s head presses down on a woman’s back, legs, and buttocks- irritating her sciatic nerve. When women are pregnancy they are limited in treatment options due to side effects to the growing baby inside. We believe keeping mom moving and active will help make for a better pregnancy for mom and baby.
