Pregnancy related back pain is a common ailment that affects approximately 50% of expectant women. The severity can range from mere nuisance to being a major disability. Potential causes of low back pain during pregnancy may include the loosening of the joints due to the action of certain hormones, the relatively quick increase in weight that accompanies a developing baby, and simple joint dysfunction. Pain radiating into the lower extremities may also develop during pregnancy, commonly referred to as “sciatica,” and can usually be remedied through chiropractic management if the right approach is taken. Due to the inability to take many pain medications during pregnancy, many pregnant women feel as though there are no options to deal with their symptoms.
