Pregnancy-related back pain is commonly experienced by expecting mothers. The intensity of back pain can be controlled with proper care through physiotherapy, exercising, massage or other treatments. Most pregnant women develop back pain during their second trimester. Pregnancy-related back pain is the result of excess weight and pressure at the SIJ joints, where the pelvis and spine meet, the lumbar spine, or the two parts of the pelvic rim. Hormone changes, muscle separation, posture changes, stress, and weight gain are responsible for back pain in pregnant women.
The treatment protocol for back pain for an expecting mother includes joint mobilization, massage, and soft tissue release, stability exercises, and yoga or Pilates to reduce the back pain. Other activities benefiting would include walking, stationary cycling, and swimming, all of which will help you strengthen abdominal, pelvic floor muscles and back.
