While going through pregnancy, it is expected for a woman to gain weight. This puts additional pressure on her joints, changing her center of gravity, causing her spine to adapt to support her changing body type. A woman’s hips undergo changes during pregnancy. The hips may alter their natural position to help stabilize the changes that occur, putting extra pressure on the sacroiliac joints and low back, causing pain or soreness. Women also undergo hormonal changes during their pregnancy which may cause ligaments between bones to become more “lax”. This laxity allows pelvic bones to displace more readily, often leading to low back and pelvic discomfort. By evaluating and addressing the areas of concern for the expectant mother, one of our doctors will provide safe, gentle adjustments to correct any misalignments or problems that they may find.
