Prenatal Chiropractic in Omaha NE

Carrying a baby to term necessitates various adjustments in the mother's body, including a shift in the center of gravity towards the pelvis. This is due to the growing baby increasing the weight at the front of the body. Naturally, this leads to considerable stress on the lower back and pelvis. As the delivery date approaches, the increased curve in the spine (lordotic curve) can intensify, potentially causing serious injuries to the vertebral joints, sacrum, and hip joints.

The spinal cord, responsible for sending and receiving signals throughout the body, can become compressed and stretched during pregnancy, causing irritation and resulting in radiating pain. Sciatica, common in pregnant women, can cause lower back pain that extends down the legs.

Postnatal changes in the spine can be significant and may not naturally revert after childbirth. This can lead to persistent pain during essential parenting tasks like breastfeeding, carrying the baby, or bending over. Without proper care, this pain can become chronic.
