Having a child during a woman’s life can be one of the joys of her life. With the impending joy, sometimes there is pain that comes along too. While the excitement of the soon to be new son or daughter is on the way, sometimes pain can get in the way of a woman’s happiness during parts of her pregnancy.
According to a study at Spine Universe, almost 80% of pregnant women experience some type of back pain. There are a number of treatments that are available and of course pain remedies that are present during the labor and birth of the baby too. With pregnancy lasting nine months, there are other ways to make pregnancy comfortable for both the mother and the unborn baby.
According to his current medical release, Dr David Ginsberg, who is the owner of Ginsberg Chiropractic of Geneva, IL suggests that pregnant women seek out chiropractors to help ease their back pain. A study that was reported back in 1991, in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, said that 84% of women who received chiropractic care such as spinal manipulative therapy experienced a decrease in back pain during their pregnancy. Dr. Ginsbery also reported that women who continued to have chiropractic care and performed exercises were to have a less painful childbirth as well. He suggests that women should contact their local chiropractors in their area during their length of pregnancy for regular care.
In some research by Spine Universe, there are a variety of types of back pain and other pains that women experience in their pregnancies. 42% experience pain in the posterior superior iliac spine , 54% experience pain in the groin areas, 54% in the coccyx, and 33% in the pubic symphysis interiorly . In 80% of pregnancies, most of the back pain will be localized during a woman’s pregnancy. But by the third semester, at least 50% of women experience back pain.
The Mayo Clinic reports that some of the reasons that so many women experience back pain is because of the extra added weight gain, change in the center of gravity, and hormones. Such things can get in the way of a daily woman’s every day life causing unneeded stress and putting a damper on the upcoming joy.
Some other recommended ways to sooth a woman’s pain during pregnancy include activities such as sleeping on your side, keeping good posture, eating and exercising properly, and using tools like a pregnancy pillow, or support belt. By adding some extra chiropractic care to a woman’s medical care during pregnancy, performing proper exercising routines, and staying fit, it is possible to reduce some of the back pain that can be experienced during pregnancy.
For women who are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant, Dr. Ginsberg offers free consultations about his chiropractic care. His information can be found on his website at http://www.kidchiro.com/main
