Pregnancy related back pain

Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  • Back Pain
  • Leg pain causing difficulty walking
  • Pain with urination
  • Pelvic pain
  • Difficulty standing
  • ”Knife like” sensations

Low back pain is very common in pregnant women, in fact, up to 90% of women will experience low back and pelvic pain in pregnancy due to the increased mechanical stresses on the hips and lower back when pregnant.¹

How do Chiropractors treat pregnancy related back pain?

Cox® Certified Chiropractors at Malvern Chiropractic Clinic and Melbourne Spine Clinic have successfully treated pregnant patients experiencing low-back and anterior pelvic pain using modified Cox® Flexion-Distraction spinal therapy.

Cox® Flexion-Distraction therapy is a gentle, safe and effective therapy, which can be modified to suit the pregnant patient, gently relieving the pressure, which is caused by the mechanical strain of pregnancy. Relief can often be achieved with just a few treatments.
