Neck and shoulder pain in pregnant women

Home > Conditions > Pregnancy > Neck and shoulder pain in pregnant women

Neck and shoulder pain often occurs as a result of increased weight and weight distribution changes in the body. As your body changes due to the new life growing inside of you, your body is re-adjusting itself to accommodate the extra weight. This extra weight adds extra pressure and strain on the neck causing discomfort and a stiffness.

Neck pain during pregnancy is the most common type of discomfort after back pain. It is not uncommon that a chiropractor must treat the body elsewhere than where the symptoms are as the cause may lie elsewhere as the pain diminishes. This is to correct and solve the problem of neck and shoulder pain – which may be the source of headaches and migraines.

Our chiropractors will perform a thorough investigation to assess and diagnose where the problem originates and then treat the cause. Exercise routines as well as advice and guidance is also an important part of treatment. Chiropractic treatment is completely safe during pregnancy. Many pregnant women have found that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from their increased lower-back, neck and shoulder pain.

Chiropractic adjustments are ideal for those who are trying to avoid medications in treating their back, neck and shoulder pain.
