A woman's body goes through many changes during pregnancy. Some of the most significant changes are mediated by different hormones that a woman's body produces, such as increased levels of relaxin. One important change produced from heightened levels of relaxin is a loosening of the body's ligaments in preparation for the shift in body structure pregnancy causes as well as the shifting that natural birth demands. Unfortunately, this loosening effect that relaxin has on a woman's ligaments also promotes subluxations throughout her body, which cause all manner of pain and dysfunction. There is hope, however, as chiropractors like Dr. Nathan Kronemeyer and Dr. Zachary Roberts with advanced training in treating pregnant woman, can resolve these subluxations through chiropractic techniques, such as the Webster Technique.
Sciatica typically causes a shooting pain down one leg. While sciatica can be uncomfortable during pregnancy, the good news is that chiropractic care can help. Our chiropractor will talk with you about the aches and pains you've been experiencing during your pregnancy. We'll talk with you about safe chiropractic care, and create a holistic wellness plan to keep you as comfortable as possible while growing your little person. For most pregnant women, a combination of spinal adjustments, stretching, massage, and lifestyle changes (such as working to eliminate inflammatory foods that may contribute to discomfort) work best to manage uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms.
