Lower back pain, sacral and hip pain, and sciatica are often some of the unwelcome conditions that can accompany late pregnancy. You may or may not have had low back pain issues before you got pregnant. Fortunately, acupuncture can often provide swift effective relief without the use of medications! “I have had great success treating lower back pain in pregnancy, and find most of my patients are very satisfied with the results after only one or two treatments. Often that is all they need.”
Acupuncture is also very effective in treating neck pain in pregnancy, as well as Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Carpel Tunnel may occur because of swelling and fluid retention in the arm, causing pressure on the nerves.
