Supporting your body through the change
The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort, and it’s common for women to complain of lower back pain while pregnant. The back pain can peak around the third trimester because this is when the baby gains the most weight.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body must undergo a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to the weight that is gained, a mother’s centre of gravity moves from its natural position, shifting to the front of her pelvis. This can also increase the lordotic curvature of the lumbar spine and add stress and discomfort to the lower back and various joints in the pelvis.

Chiropractic care is just one of the many safe and effective treatments that can help prepare the mother’s body for the experience of pregnancy and childbirth.
