Back Pain and Pregnancy

Many pregnant women develop back pain. This is due to increased weight gain causing stress on the spine. By having increased stomach weight, one develops a increased lumbar curve putting strain on the back musculature. Many women find themselves seeking physical therapy to help to decrease their back discomfort. Physical Therapy consists of manual treatment to the back, heat, stretching, and core/pelvic floor exercises.
