50% of pregnant women will experience back pain, disability and difficulty sleeping. Our SpineCare program has services to help with lower back pain during pregnancy. Our team includes chiropractors and physical therapists to help you develop ways to manage your pain, sleep better and stay active throughout your pregnancy.
Our team works with you, using manual treatment, exercise and education to provide relief for pregnancy-related back pain. We provide ergonomic advice for daily activities and exercise instruction to maintain physical activity. Maintaining physical activity throughout your pregnancy is helpful towards preventing continued back pain after your pregnancy. Our goal is to help:
- Decrease pain.
- Improve sleep.
- Tolerate activity better, including:
- Household activities
- Getting ready for your new baby by teaching you ways to lift, hold and care for your child that won't aggravate your back
- Caring for children you may already have
This modified approach to SpineCare is focused on physical therapy and chiropractic treatments (manipulation, soft tissue mobilization). Working in partnership with your obstetrician, this type of treatment has been shown to help reduce your back pain and increase your tolerance to activity.
