The Sacroiliac Joint and Pregnancy

Lately in our office we have been seeing a lot of women in their second and third trimester with lower back pain. Typically in these trimesters the body releases a hormone called relaxin. This hormone helps the pubic spread during child labor. This hormone affects all the joints of the body, especially the joints of the lower back and sacroiliac joints. This can cause women in the second and third trimester a great deal of back pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care and sacroiliac joint stabilization belts can be a great way to help alleviate this pain and give them relief without the use of drugs that can affect the unborn baby.

If you have a friend or loved one experiencing lower back or sacroiliac pain from pregnancy, have them give us a call. We would love to help them.
