Pregnancy Impact on the Sciatic Nerve
Sciatica is the condition where the sciatic nerve is irritated and produces various symptoms, many of which are uncomfortable and painful. They can be felt all the way down to the feet and as high up as the back and lower abdomen. As the unborn child grows bigger, the pressure can sometimes land on the nerve. A mother’s body might react with inflammation, burning sensations, pain, and more. These symptoms can become chronic as well.
Sciatic nerve might continue to stay irritated until it gets relief from being compressed. It can become a vicious cycle of irritation and symptoms without prenatal chiropractic care.

Our care is natural and non-invasive. It is safe for both mother and child so you don’t have to worry. Contact us today to get started on your journey toward sciatica relief.
