Pregnancy Q&A

What causes back pain during pregnancy?

Back pain is a common pain condition women have during pregnancy. Many factors play a role in the development of back pain during pregnancy, including:

Hormonal changes

The hormonal changes during pregnancy loosen the ligaments and joints in your pelvic area in preparation for childbirth. These changes place more stress on your lower back, resulting in pain and discomfort.

Change in center of gravity

As your belly grows, your body’s center of gravity shifts to the front. This shift affects the alignment of your spine and your posture, placing even more stress on your back. 

Weight gain

Weight gain is a normal part of your pregnancy but also places more stress and strain on your back, contributing to the aches and pains. 

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy. In addition to easing your aches and pains, regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy may improve your baby’s delivery.

Dr. Massoud specializes in chiropractic care for pregnancy. During chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Massouds uses special tools and techniques, improving the alignment of your spine and pelvis, easing pain.

These adjustments also improve the amount of space your baby has to grow and move, decreasing the risk of congenital abnormalities. 

Improving your pelvic and spinal alignment also makes it easier for your baby to get into the correct position for delivery, decreasing your risk of a breech or front-facing delivery.

What type of pregnancy care can I expect?

At Greenwich Wellness, the focus is on your whole health, not just your pregnancy-induced back pain. In addition to helping you get relief from your pain, Dr. Massoud also provides other health-promoting therapies, including acupuncture and nutrition therapy.

He conducts an in-depth assessment when you first come in for pregnancy care so he can fully understand your health concerns and needs. He then customizes your pregnancy care to improve overall health and well-being. 

What type of care can I expect after pregnancy?

Greenwich Wellness also offers postnatal care for you and your baby, addressing any mechanical issue resulting from the birthing process. 

Dr. Massoud provides therapies that support the health and healing of your body. He also provides care for your baby, easing common issues like colic, digestive problems, and ear infections.
