It has been reported that approximately 50% of all pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy and 50%-75% experience back pain during labor. However, only 21% of pregnant women with back pain seek consultation with their medical physicians.
Several physiologic and endocrinologic changes occur in pregnancy that prepares a woman's body for the developing baby. These changes include growing abdomen which stretches the abdominal muscles and increases the back curve, pelvic changes, and postural distortions. In addition, the increase in progesterone, estrogen, and relaxin throughout gestation, especially in the third trimester, brings about pelvic hypermobility and decrease in spinal stabilization.
Although , low back pain is an inevitable complication during pregnancy, relief is available to allow moms a comfortable experience. Chiropractic care is effective in removing misalignments to allow the spine and pelvis to stabilize the body during pregnancy. Furthermore, reducing muscle spasms and strengthening postural muscles can be beneficial to alleviating many symptoms experienced during pregnancy.
Not only does the spine and pelvis need to be adjusted during pregnancy, but the ligaments that attach to the uterus must also be relaxed to allow for optimal fetal positioning and ease of labor. This method of adjusting is known as Webster Technique. It has widely become known for turning breech babies because of its high success rate in allowing babies to turn into the vertex position when the pelvis, sacroiliac joints, and uterine ligaments are free of constraint.
