As most of you know, I specialize in sports-related injuries. But as most of you may not know, I treat pregnant women too. Here is what one mother-to-be had to say about me in her blog. (She has given me consent to share this with you.)
Lot’s of things happen physiologically in the body during pregnancy. One major change is a hormone that is released into the bloodstream that causes the ligaments to stretch to allow the hips to expand for childbirth. This stretching can sometimes lead to pain. Not to mention all of the extra weight that these women begin to carry around in the second trimester… this too will cause stress on the body. Muscle and joint pain is very common in pregnancy, but you don’t have to live with the pain.
I am here to help.
