While Round Ligament pain is often considered a common and typical pregnancy symptom, it signals tension in the area and an imbalance in the suspensory ligaments of the uterus. This type of pain can reach a severity that restricts activities like walking and exercise, causing significant discomfort when rolling over in bed or standing up. It may also be linked to other treatable pregnancy issues such as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, Low Back Pain, and Sciatica, indicating abnormal stress on the uterus. Some chiropractors observe that Round Ligament pain can serve as an early indicator of Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction.
Although some healthcare providers may suggest that Round Ligament pain is inevitable and cannot be alleviated, chiropractic care from a practitioner experienced in working with pregnant women can prove highly beneficial in managing Round Ligament Pain.
