Due to so many changes occurring in a women’s body whilst she is pregnant, it is no wonder many women experience back, neck and pubic bone pain. The changes occur due to the physical change in an expectant mother’s body as well as hormonal ones, which makes her far more susceptible to joint, ligament and muscle strain.
If the alignment of her pelvis isn’t correct it may lead to intrauterine constraint. This may create less space for the baby to develop, make it harder to deliver the baby and in worst cases cause head and facial malformation. The good news is chiropractic is safe and effective in helping to reduce intrauterine constraint. (1)
