Did you know that between 50% of all pregnant women suffer from back pain and 50-75% experience back pain during labor?
There are many reasons why back pain becomes an issue for women during their pregnancy. The first and most obvious reason is the weight gain during pregnancy. As the baby develops, the mothers center of gravity moves forward causing her to sway back, which can cause an overload on the lower region of the spine.
Water retention is another factor that can increase a woman’s risk for back pain during pregnancy. Not only does retaining water increase the load the body must carry, placing added stress on the musculoskeletal system, but water retention has also been associated with stiffer joints throughout the body which can increase the risk for musculoskeletal pain- including back pain.
