Pain During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is not without its pain, and pelvic pain during pregnancy effects many women mostly in the last few months and stages of pregnancy. We are not telling you anything you do not know but pregnancy can significantly affect your body’s functioning. Even regular tasks such as sitting, walking, standing and working can be difficult when pregnant
Pregnancy can often cause joint related pain issues both during the pregnancy and following the birth process. Due to the increased release of the hormone Relaxin, the body’s ligaments ‘loosen’ to allow delivery of the baby through the pelvic floor. However a side effect of this process is that ligaments at other joints also ‘relax’. This can cause decreased support, which in turn leads to pain.
Almost all women experience musculoskeletal discomfort during pregnancy, however, this does not mean that you just have to suffer, as no matter where your pain is, we can treat it safely and effectively. The most common pain experienced during pregnancy is back and neck pain, pelvic pain and pubis symphysis separation.
