Back Pain During Pregnancy

, ,

Atlanta Physical Therapy for Pregnant WomenBack pain is a common occurrence for women during pregnancy. In fact, more than half of all pregnant women suffer from back pain at some point throughout their nine months. As a woman’s belly grows throughout pregnancy, the lower back curves more than usual to accommodate the weight out in front. This curving results in strained muscles and back pain. As the uterus continues to grow, it shifts the center of gravity forward as pregnancy progresses and puts even more pressure on the lower back. Hormones also play a role in back pain during pregnancy. A hormone called relaxin causes the ligaments to stretch and joints to loosen to prepare the body for child birth, but this can also lead to back pain because there is more weight and less support on the spine.

It can cause temporary or long lasting problems. Any warning signal from a pinched nerve should not be ignored. The earlier treatment for a pinched nerve is given, the more quickly a person will find relief.
