Common Reasons for Pain During Pregnancy



Pregnancy is a beautiful and rewarding journey, but it can also bring about unexpected discomforts and pains. Many pregnant women experience body aches, headaches, leg cramps, numbness or tingling in the extremities, muscle soreness, joint soreness, and increased stress. If you’re one of them, know that you’re not alone – and more importantly, that relief is within reach.

At Motus Integrative Health, we understand the unique challenges of pregnancy. Our team of professionals specializing in different fields strives to help you navigate this special time with less pain and more joy. We believe that every woman deserves a comfortable and healthy pregnancy, and our customized treatment plans reflect this commitment.

Common Causes of Pain During Pregnancy

The physical changes during pregnancy often lead to common discomforts. The expanding uterus shifts your center of gravity and stretches out and weakens your abdominal muscles, leading to back pain. Hormonal changes cause joints and ligaments to loosen, triggering soreness and instability. Leg cramps might occur due to increased blood volume and pressure on blood vessels. Additionally, the emotional stress of impending motherhood can contribute to tension headaches.

These pains are not only uncomfortable for you, but they can also impact your baby. High stress levels may increase the risk of premature birth and low birth weight. It’s crucial, then, to address these issues promptly and effectively.

Alleviating Pain: A Holistic Approach

At Motus Integrative Health, our holistic and multidimensional approach includes chiropractic care, which is beneficial for alleviating various types of pain, including back pain during pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve discomfort, improve spinal alignment, and promote overall well-being for expectant mothers. The Webster Technique, a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment, helps to establish balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and reduce undue stress on her uterus and supporting ligaments. By addressing musculoskeletal imbalances, chiropractic care can contribute to a more comfortable and pain-free pregnancy journey.

In addition, our pregnancy massages aim to reduce muscle tension and promote relaxation. We understand that every pregnancy is unique, and so should be the care. Our team works closely with you to understand your specific needs and develop a treatment plan tailored to you. This customized approach ensures more effective pain management and contributes to a healthier, happier pregnancy.
