Press Release Summary: Upper Darby, PA chiropractor, Dr. Angelo Karakasis, discusses
why chiropractic care is so important during pregnancy. It can relieve lower back
pain and it can also aid in a quicker labor process.

Press Release Body: It is estimated that two-thirds of American women will
experience lower back pain by the 36th week of pregnancy. Dr. Angelo Karakasis, a
local Upper Darby, PA chiropractor, has been helping pregnant women to relieve their
lower back pain and is getting excellent results without the use of drugs.

According to Dr. Karakasis, \"Many women are told by their physician that they simply
need to wait until after birth to be alleviated from their pain. This is not true.
Chiropractic care can not only treat lower back pain, but often leads to a quicker
and less painfull labor process. Women do not have to simply accept lower back pain
during pregnancy, now they can do something to prevent it.\"

Lower back pain is such a prevalent symptom during pregnancy for the following
reasons: women experience significant weight gain that adds stress to the lower
back, their center of gravity changes during pregnancy which causes muscular
imbalances and muscle fatiguing, and they experience hormonal surges which cause
joint laxity and decreased joint support.

Dr. Karakasis says that, \"Chiropractic care should be used throughout the whole
pregnancy process. Before a woman becomes pregnant, a proper examination can reveal
imbalances in the spine or pelvis that can lead to lower back pain during pregnancy
and neuromusculoskeletal problems after birth. During pregnancy, I can make
recommendations for appropriate stretching and activities of daily living that can
strengthen lower back muscles. After pregnancy, many women still experience lower
back pain due to stretching of the ligaments. Treatment for this should be done
before the ligaments return to their pre-pregnancy state. Chiropractic care should
really be administered throughout the whole pregnancy process.\"

Dr. Karakasis offers his first visit free of charge to any woman looking into
chiropractic and how it can treat lower back pain before, during, and after
pregnancy. \"This way they can be well informed and it won\'t cost them anything.\" Dr.
Angelo Karakasis, D.C., is located at 32 Garrett Road, Upper Darby, Pa 19082. He can
be reached by telephone at 610-352-8812.
