Staying active during pregnancy can make the difference between slight discomfort and outright pain.

Very few women escape from a pregnancy without a twinge of pain, but the degree to which it defines your time with child varies greatly! Along with chiropractic, exercise offers one of the best ways to ease the standard discomforts of pregnancy, maintain great circulation throughout your body and to your fetus, and combat mental anxiety. The problem is, there will be days when you feel like doing nothing less than exercising! Here is some encouragement and advice on how to stay active during pregnancy.

Chronic pain is a brutal reality

Defined broadly as pain that lasts for more than three months, chronic pain can come to define a person's entire life, especially in old age. The daily battle against symptoms can take all the willpower and determination an individual can muster just to survive the day. The pain becomes a permanent fixture in life- stemming from conditions that we can identify but that have no definitive treatment. At Greenway Plaza Chiropractic, we specialize in helping people find a way to live happily despite musculoskeletal disorders that cause chronic pain, conditions like:

  • Spinal stenosis
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis 
  • Degenerative disc disease 

These are serious spinal conditions that often appear with age, as the natural degenerative process finally starts to get the better of our spines. Managing chronic pain requires a coming to grips with the reality of your condition and a dedicated, individualized treatment plan that seeks to help you live better despite it.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

DOMS, as it is affectionately known, is important to keep an eye on. While it can be a normal indicator of a good workout, it can also be an alarm bell for muscle damage. Depending on the severity of the muscle soreness you feel after your exercise, you may need to take more action than just rest and ice. The truth is that muscle building relies on creating micro-tears in the muscles that are then repaired during the resting phase by a natural bodily process. But when pain proceeds past the point of soreness and aching and into the realm of inflammation, weakness and tingling, you need to take note. This blog is designed to help you figure out when you need to worry.

Sitting all day is unnatural

Humans weren't made to just sit. We were made to stand, to walk, run, jump, twist, turn, bend, lay down, roll, crawl, climb, squat, and maybe, for a few minutes a day, to sit. But at a certain point in (very recent) history, our jobs became seated, our entertainment became seated, our meals, our commute, etc. The list goes on. Sitting has become as prevalent as standing and it is taking its toll on our bodies. If your typical day consists of commuting to work each way, sitting in front of a computer, then sitting on a sofa and watching TV to unwind (with maybe an hour of exercise thrown in), you could be putting your spine at serious risk.
