There is nothing more amazing than how a woman’s body creates, nurtures and grows a baby. Unfortunately, more often times than not, as we progress through the 9 months of this amazing experience we can suffer many different aliments as our body tries to adapt to the changes at a fast pace. One of the most common side effects of pregnancy is back pain. This is caused by the weight gain and the added pressure this weight gain puts on your spine. Your back is trying to adapt to this change in weight in a very short period of time and that can put a lot of stress on your muscles, bones and nerves of the spine.
One very effective way to help manage back pain and help your body adapt to the changes more gracefully is through Chiropractic adjustments. At Ezcape Wellness, we use a light force adjusting technique called ‘The Activator Method’ to realign the spine. This is a great technique that eliminates the need to twist or crack the spine, providing you with a gentle adjustment that not only helps you but is also beneficial to your baby.
The Activator adjusting instrument is an effective way to restore motion to specific areas of your spine giving you relief from back pain. Its main 2 advantages are: one, the Activator instrument provides a very fast adjusting force, so the body does not have time to tense up and fight back the adjustment, which happens often with manual treatments, allowing you to receive 100% of the treatment. And two, the Activator instrument allows the Chiropractor to be very specific in the areas treated making it more effective in helping with back pain.
