Pregnancy back pain typically comes on during a woman’s second trimester and can often worsen as the pregnancy progresses. Some woman begin to feel these aches and pains during the first trimester.

Thankfully, acupuncture offers an incredible, drug-free option for treating back pain and other discomforts while a woman is pregnant. A patient should expect to get up off the table after her first session feeling significantly better.

Each subsequent treatment can increase the amount of relief a woman experiences, and will help strengthen and nourish the body as it begins to adjust to the changes it is going through. Tune-up treatments are often recommended later in the pregnancy, as the pregnancy alters a woman’s center of gravity and puts pressure on different parts of the body.
