Pregnancy Related Low Back Pain
Over 50% of women will experience low back pain during pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body has to make crucial changes to help support the life of your infant. As a result, your posture adjusts to reflect your baby’s development, causing low back pain.
About Pregnancy Related Low Back Pain
Every woman’s pregnancy journey is different, and there are no set rules for the type of discomfort you may encounter. However, just because low back pain during pregnancy is common does not mean you have to suffer through this discomfort for nine months. Our St. George prenatal chiropractor is here to find the root cause of your pregnancy-related low back pain.
Common Causes of Low Back During Pregnancy
- Postural changes
- Growth of the baby
- Change in the center of gravity
- Hormones affecting joint and ligament laxity
- Strain on the musculature of the low back
