Preventing Pregnancy Related Backaches In Mechanicsville 

 May 2, 2011

I started Stover Chiropractic, P.C. in 1998 and am a Chiropractor. At that time, backaches during pregnancy were a common symptom affecting almost half of all pregnant women in Mechanicsville. Backaches during pregnancy remain a number one complaint for women in the local areas around Richmond, too.

‘Backache’ is a term typically used to describe pain in the lower back. Pregnant women in Mechanicsville commonly feel pain in the lower back due to changes in their hormones, which help facilitate birth, and their posture due to the extra weight affecting their spine and back. These changes come naturally as a part of pregnancy.

The best way to avoid backaches or to alleviate back pain during pregnancy in Mechanicsville is to take preventative measures.

Exercise that strengthens your back and abdominal muscles, monitoring your posture, and avoiding high heels are all examples of preventative measures pregnant women in Mechanicsville, Richmond, and Glen Allen can take to avoid or alleviate backaches. Another preventative option available to women suffering from backaches due to pregnancy is to visit your local Mechanicsville chiropractor.

Some women in the area look to over-the-counter pain killers to alleviate their backaches. During pregnancy it is a good idea to avoid many over-the-counter pain killers as they can increase the risk of problems. Your doctor can direct you to appropriate pain killers should you wish to use them to alleviate your backaches during pregnancy.

An appealing alternative for pregnant women suffering from backaches related to pregnancy in Richmond, and Glen Allen is to visit their local Mechanicsville chiropractor. A chiropractor can possibly ease pregnancy backaches without the use of any over-the-counter pain killers.

Sadly, women who have a history of backaches are more likely to suffer from backaches during pregnancy, and backaches after pregnancy are likely to exist due to strain on a mother’s spine from lifting babies and nursing. Taking preventive measures before pregnancy and continuing preventative measures after pregnancy is just as important as preventing backaches during pregnancy.

Your Mechanicsville chiropractor can help ease your pregnancy related backaches.

If you live in Richmond, Glen Allen, or Mechanicsville, and suffer from backaches come visit our friendly staff and see what Stover Chiropractic, P.C. can do for you.
