About Pregnancy Pain

Pregnancy Pain

Abdominal pain and back pain during pregnancy is normal as the body undergoes several changes to adapt to the new life inside the womb. The uterus constantly expands and the ligaments stretch during pregnancy.

Pregnancy Musculoskeletal Complaints

Leg cramps, knee and hip pain, lower back pain, sciatica, rib pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome and more.

What happened?

As the body must adapt to caring for and protecting the baby as he or she grows within the womb, the mother's body changes often as the pregnancy progresses. There is also the matter of weight gain and posture changes that affect the mother's muscles, ligaments and joints.


Musculoskeletal pain is very common during pregnancy due to the dramatic changes in ligamentous consistency associated with the hormone changes. Coordinated chiropractic care with the mother's OB/GYN is a common option for drug-free relief.

3 Steps to Improving Your Pregnancy Pain


  My sister had been complaining of lower back pain since she was 4 months pregnant. Painkillers were not an option because of safety issues with the baby. I told her about my own experience with spinal manipulation helping to relieve pregnancy pain. I took her to my Chiropractor for the first consultation and she started her care plan right away. Now, two months later, she's pain free and feeling better than she was before she became pregnant!

  My dad suggested Mechanical motor therapy to me during my pregnancy. I was suffering from back pain, leg pain and headaches along with the abdominal pain, and I was literally unable to move at times. I was pretty nervous about trying something new during the pregnancy but something told me to go ahead. I've been seeing the chiropractor for gentle adjustments and MMT for about month now and it's made all the difference! I'm so glad I found this, here's hoping every pregnant mom does!

  Excessive back pain during a pregnancy was a problem I faced when I was expecting my first child. When I became pregnant for the second time I decided to do some research about how to manage the changes in my body, and I learned how Chiropractic and motion therapy could help. After a month of MMT, the back pain is so much more manageable. I should have done it sooner.
