The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that travels down the back of the leg. It is commonly irritated by problems in the low back and pelvis. Because of the many changes that occur in a pregnant woman’s body, misalignments in the low back and pelvis are very common. Changes in hormone levels will make the joints more relaxed and more likely to misalign. Changes in center of gravity will lead to an altered posture that will affect the function of the low back and pelvis joints. And increased weight will put more pressure on the joints of the low back and pelvis.
Sciatica leg pain is a common complaint in pregnant women. Sciatica commonly interferes with the ability to walk and sleep. But it doesn’t have to be something that a pregnant woman has to deal with throughout pregnancy. There is a natural way to get pain relief. This painful problem can often times be relieved by a chiropractor who uses the Webster Technique.
This video testimonial is about the relief of sciatica with Webster Technique adjustments by a trained chiropractor. The testimonial of this pregnant chiropractic patient is similar to what many of my pregnant patients report to me. As a chiropractor with a special focus on pregnancy, I find that the Webster Technique can be very effective at relieving sciatic leg pain. For more information about the Webster Technique, visit our Webster Technique page on our website.
