Pregnancy Back Pain Treatment

Pregnant & experiencing back pain?

Carrying a child is an amazing experience. However, it does take a physical toll on our bodies.  During the first moment of pregnancy, our bodies begin to change. The hormones Estrogen and Relaxin spike in the first trimester to relax your ligaments.  And that nagging back pain that you thought was taken care of years ago?  Unfortunately, it can rear its ugly head again due to decreased stability at the joints and ligaments around our bones.  In fact, an estimated 50-70% of women experience back pain during pregnancy. What are some things that can be done to provide relief?

Our Pregnancy and Back Pain Treatment Program is a great option for those expecting mothersPhysical therapists will implement manual therapies and exercises to improve posture, stability and strength to provide back pain relief.

Physical Therapy can be a tool for expecting mothers for many reasons:

  • Many women want to learn safe forms of exercises to keep strong and agile during pregnancy. Physical Therapists can provide a safe space to continue an exercise program during pregnancy.
  • After giving birth, physical therapy is beneficial to regain core stability, reduce overuse injuries, learn safe lifting and carrying techniques, and provide soft tissue mobilization for those aching muscles.

In your personalized treatment plan, we will work with you to both relieve your pregnancy back pain and strengthen your body where needed. It is amazing what the female body can do.
