Back Pain Doctor in Albany, NY & Beyond
With so many changes occurring in a woman’s body during pregnancy, experiencing some form of back pain, specifically lower back pain, is completely normal and to be expected. Each woman and each pregnancy will be different from the next, but in general, a newly expecting mother can typically count on her back pain ramping up right around the second half of the pregnancy, while the baby continues to grow and develop over time.
This increased lower back pain can be due to a number of common reasons, including:
- Weight Gain
- Muscle Separation
- Posture Changes
As your body prepares itself to give birth to your baby, lower back pain can disrupt your day to day activities and interfere with getting a good night’s sleep. Regular exercise, heat or ice, and pain medication can help to combat your back pain while at home, but it’s often helpful to visit a chiropractor regularly to help temporarily ease the strain on your back and ensure that both your spine is properly aligned and your body is functioning at its full potential.
