During pregnancy, many hormonal changes occur in the female body. It is natural that some of these changes are intended to loosen the ligaments in the body so as to facilitate labor. Of course, loosening of the ligaments in this way makes it easier for the discs between the vertebrae to get damaged, due to the disturbed posture of the body with the baby’s extra pounds added.
When the disc herniation in the neck develops during pregnancy and the pain starts, the patient cannot be x-rayed for diagnosis and no medicine can be used. For this reason, if any pain is present before the pregnancy, it is better to solve this problem before getting pregnant. Otherwise the treatment will be postponed until the baby is ablactated and the pregnancy is over.
