Prenatal Chiropractic for Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction
Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) is a common condition seen in pregnant women. It is discomfort and pain at the back or front of the pelvic joints. This pain can make moving, twisting, and walking painful. As the baby grows, the weight is transferred down to the low back changing the tilt of your pelvis. This and the relaxin hormone that makes your ligaments more elastic, causes the pubic joint to not be able to handle the weight and transfer of your growing baby while walking. Prenatal chiropractic adjustments are very effective for this condition and it is a safe and natural way to ease the pain and discomfort. If you or someone you know is experiencing pubic bone pain please schedule an appointment with us!
