Low back pain is very common in pregnant women. Often times, this low back pain comes on towards the end of pregnancy but it is not uncommon for pregnant women to experience low back pain a lot sooner – perhaps even during the first trimester!
There are many physical changes that occur during pregnancy that may affect how a woman’s body functions and moves. Following are just some of the most common problems seen in our office related to pregnancy:
- Strain/Sprain (neck and mid-back)
Low Back Pain
- Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction/Syndrome
- Pubic Symphysis Pain
