Back or pelvic pain sometimes increases in late pregnancy. Relief is possible with body work including self-care, Chiropractic, Osteopathic, FasciaTherapie (Methode Danis Bois), and Ortho-Bionomy. Acupuncture is worthwhile.
Chiropractic care enhances pelvic alignment:
As the uterus expands during pregnancy, it can affect the alignment and function of the pelvis. Chiropractic care, specifically techniques like the Webster Technique, focuses on aligning the pelvis and optimising the position of the baby. Proper pelvic alignment may help alleviate stress on the spine and improve overall biomechanics.
Most cases of scoliosis do not restrict the movements of the baby into and through the pelvis. Metal rods may restrict your body’s natural shifts to let baby through, however. Placement of the rods and the results in joints and fascia will vary and so will how they affect birth.
Severe cases may prevent baby from fitting into the pelvis. This is rare.
Scoliosis can increase difficulty when placing the epidural anesthesia needle into the membrane “sleeve” surrounding the spine (the epidural space). The attempt may have to be repeated. Spinal fusion can make epidural placement more difficult, also.
