Treatment for back pain during pregnancy.

 

Treatment for back pain during pregnancy in Virginia Beach.Pregnancy back pain

Back pain during pregnancy is an extremely common occurrence for several reasons. The first and most obvious cause is the large increase in the curve of the low back. This can cause increased stretching of the tendons and ligaments in the area which makes them sore. This condition also causes the pelvis to rock forward leading to postural instability which also causes the back and hips to ache. Increases in abdominal pressure and pressure from the baby can cause direct nerve irritation causing both low back and radiant leg pain.

Common Conditions Treated at New Life Chiropractic in Virginia Beach.

Chiropractic was originally created as an alternative method of health care to treat a wide variety of conditions. Today we are more know for simply treating pain of the spine and extremities. This being said I can’t tell you how many times I have treated a patient for mid back pain and they tell me the reflux they’ve had for years is now gone. Do to the fact that our body is controlled by the nervous system and the nerves originate from the spine, it is not surprising to the chiropractor that the body functions better when the spine is at its best. Do chiropractors treat high blood pressure, menieres, diabetes, celiacs, ADHD, cholic, ect… no, but we correct the nervous system which allows the body to work at its best and the rest takes care of itself. The list of condition and symptoms listed below are only the most common, not all.

Chiropractic Maintenance

Chiropractic Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living

Chiropractic maintenance

Now that you have become pain free and your joints have full mobility it is time for chiropractic maintenance care.  A common complaint of chiropractic care is that once you start you have to continue forever. I used to argue this. Now I would enthusiastically tell you its true. You get very used to feeling great and you don’t want to let that go. The primary reason we need to continue care is because we continue doing the things that caused the pain in the first place. Its kind of like eating candy all day and not brushing your teeth, eventually you are going to have problems.
