Tips For Reducing Back Pain During Pregnancy El Paso, TX.

During my first pregnancy, I was in great shape as a yoga instructor. I thought I was ready but juggling:

  • Pregnancy
  • Birth
  • Early motherhood

I realized how intense the weight gain was, especially on my:

  • Back
  • Neck
  • Hips

This turned into a cycle of:

  • Gaining baby weight
  • Losing baby weight

Along with repetitive movements of:

  • Lifting
  • Swaying
  • Hunching over to nurse
  • Bathing

I experienced body discomfort and back pain that I never thought I would feel!

Then came my second pregnancy, and the pain was there again. This time targeting my:

  • Hips
  • Neck
  • Shoulders

And of course, the back pain was there in full force, which discouraged and saddened me.

I was sick of feeling uncomfortable and realized it was time to find a solution I could use at home and every day of my pregnancy.

I surrounded myself with top professionals, absorbed their knowledge and utilized their tips and tools into my daily routine.

Tips to alleviate back pain during pregnancy

These tips come from my background as a yoga instructor along with consultations from my:

Strengthening the abdominals and glutes

During pregnancy when your back hurts it is because you are not using the muscle groups that stabilize the body’s frame.

As you gain pregnancy weight, the discomfort can worsen.

My Pilates instructor showed me deep core strengthening and glute exercises to do at home, which immediately helped alleviate my back pain.

These exercises can get those muscle groups to respond. Therefore, instead of the back doing the work, these muscles take over.

  • Bridges with a rear-end squeeze at the top
  • Pelvic tilts to gently awaken the transverse abdominals

Side-stretching helps  expand the spine

Stretching the sides of your body allows for space between the ribs.

It alleviates back pain and improves breathing.

As pregnancy advances, the middle area of your body can feel tighter.

This is one reason you may feel out of breath.

My massage therapist shared a stretch that helps to open up this space.

  • Sit cross-legged and raise both arms toward the ceiling
  • Put your right hand down and, with the left hand, reach over toward the right side of the room
  • Repeat on the opposite side
  • Take deep breaths

The goal is to reach up and over to improve breathing.

Legs up the wall

 

 

Your legs, knees, and feet will begin to feel the effects of added bodyweight and pressure.

A restorative yoga pose that involves placing a yoga mat or blanket as a back cushion next to a wall.

  • Lie on the floor against the wall
  • Let your legs climb up the wall
  • Stretch arms outward and turn your palms up
  • Take deep breaths

This reverses the blood flow and gives your joints a much-needed break.

Hang out and enjoy.

If the back of your legs feel like it’s too much to stretch all the way up, bring the soles of your feet together and let the knees butterfly out to the sides.

Make it a Daily habit

It can be a struggle to do daily stretches and exercises, especially as things get crazier and busier.

But this is what makes these home exercises/tips work.

Get into the habit to make it more personal and make body-care a top priority.

Children and life will try to take over but your wellness needs to come first before the care of others.

Living with back pain is something I would not recommend trying. Instead, see a chiropractor/doctor and learn these exercises and more tips so you can work out the discomfort/pain whenever it presents and enjoy your pregnancy to the fullest.


 

Chiropractic Treatment Lower Back Pain Pregnancy El Paso, TX

 

 

Truide Torres, office supervisor, first considered chiropractic care with Dr. Alex Jimenez throughout her pregnancy as a result of her lower back pain. Mrs. Torres experienced aggravating symptoms throughout different stages of her pregnancy, which directed her to seek out a pure remedy strategy for her well-being, especially in consideration of her child from the womb. Following Truide Torres’ chiropractic therapy with Dr. Alex Jimenez, she regained her general well-being and managed to return to her first state of well-being. As a professional manager, Truide Torres also receives routine chiropractic care for any lower back pain that might happen as a consequence of her occupation. Mrs. Truide expresses how important it is to maintain her spinal maintenance and she recommends Dr. Alex Jimenez as the non-invasive choice for many health issues.

Low back pain, or LBP, is a normal health issue between the muscles, nerves, and bones of the spine. Pain may differ, frequently described as a dull persistent pain or any surprising sharp sense. Low back pain could be categorized by severity and length, such as severe (pain lasting less than 6 weeks ), sub-chronic (6 to 12 weeks ), or chronic (over 12 weeks ). The status could be further categorized together with the inherent causes as both physiological, non-mechanical, or referred pain. The indications of lower back pain might generally improve in a few weeks, but a few cases may require further therapy. In virtually all episodes of lower back pain, a certain underlying cause is not identified or properly cared for, and healthcare professionals might feature it to muscle or joint strain.


 

What’s Afoot

The human body is an intricate machine, and everything is connected so when something goes wrong in one area, it can cause problems in other areas. The back carries a lot of the stress in the body so when there is a problem with the hips, knees, or a foot dysfunction, the spine can bear at least some of the brunt of the pain and other effects.
