Default Preventing Muscular Aches, Pains and Discomforts Of Pregnancy - 07-25-2013, 12:22 PM

As the belly grows, biomechanics of the body change and there are several common pregnancy misalignments, muscle imbalances, and postural syndromes: low back ache, neck ache, “big belly” discomfort, calf cramps, and breathlessness. But maintaining a proper alignment can reduce a tremendous amount of pregnancy discomfort.
As the weight around the belly increases, the belly hangs forward and the lower back is pulled into an increased lordotic curve. As the lumbar lordosis increases, it then becomes more likely that the shoulders will then round forward and the knees will knock inward. As the shoulders round and the knees cave, the head and neck are pulled further forward and the arches of the feet collapse. All this can occur from straining muscles.
The realm of corrective exercise has been helping pregnant women mediate their discomforts effectively but still widely regarded as untreatable maladies. “Neutral Alignment” is the place where all movement should start and end, where each joint in the body should naturally return when not in use.
There are some exercise for the carrying women who have misalignment complaints to fix or mediate.
For Low Back Ache complaint, the quick fix solution is Pelvic Tilt, Diaphragmatic Breathing, Belly Pump.
For Neck Ache complaint, the quick fix solution is Scapular Retraction, Head Placement.
For “Big Belly” Discomfort, the quick fix solution is Belly Pump.
For Calf Cramps complaint, the quick fix solution is Calf Stretching, Stop Wearing Heels.
For Breathlessness complaint, the quick fix solution is Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing.
Remember when the body does not return to neutral alignment naturally or easily, it will slowly accumulate more aches and pains. As pregnancy is a time of rapid change, it is often associated with aches and pains of misalignment.
