Unbearable Sciatic Pain - 3rd Trimester
Are you suffering with unbearable sciatic pain during their 3rd trimester of pregnancy? Pregnant women have limited treatment options, fear, anxiety and potential consequences if the pain is not treated. Even worse - Sciatic Pain may be a sign of pelvic misalignment, which can cause intrauterine constraint, which isn't good for the mother or the child.
Sciatic pain during your third trimester can be a sign of an underlying pelvic misalignment that chiropractors may correct with an adjustment to the sacrum. Adjustments can balance pelvic muscles and ligaments, which reduces torsion to the uterus. As a result, sciatica pain can be reduced. Less stress is put on your uterus, and it may even improve the delivery process.
How Do You Know If You Have a Pelvic Misalignment?
Sciatic pain is the most obvious sign of a misalignment to a pregnant women’s spine. When the spine becomes stiff and out of position it wears on the muscles and ligaments asymmetrically. This unbalanced posture puts stress on the body and causes muscle tension, inflammation and pain.
Why is Sciatic Pain Common During Pregnancy?
During pregnancy a women’s body goes through several changes to accommodate to the growing baby. One of these many changes is an increased release of the hormone progesterone, which causes ligament laxity. Essentially, pregnant women’s joints become looser. This process eases the strain on the body caused by the growing baby but stresses the joints and may even exacerbate previous injuries.
