The human body goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy, and low back pain is one of the most common reasons a pregnant woman seeks chiropractic care. Quality Life Chiropractic & Massage helps pregnant patients in Rochester, MN, put an end to their back pain so they can have a more enjoyable pregnancy.

Why Does Pregnancy Cause Lower Back Pain?

During pregnancy, your body is constantly adapting physically and hormonally to tailor towards your baby’s growth and development. A woman’s body undergoes a rapid weight shift which alters your center of gravity affecting your overall posture and gait. This can place pressure on the low back and pelvis often resulting in new discomforts. The body is also being flooded with the hormone, relaxin, which allows the muscles and ligaments to stretch. These structures primarily attach to the bones in your body; so when being pulled and stretched, it can create misalignment and reduced range of motion due to the increased tension being applied to the soft tissues.
