Back Pain During Pregnancy: Causes And Treatment

37

Back Pain is one of the most common symptoms among pregnant women. Back pain affects around half to three-quarters of all pregnant women. While back discomfort in the later stages of pregnancy is easy to pinpoint (hint: blame the belly), what causes back pain in the first trimester? Here's what to anticipate. Causes of back pain during early pregnancy First Trimester [*]Early pregnancy [*]Hormone increase [*]Stress Second and Third Trimester [*]Shifting centre of gravity [*]Weight gain Treatment for early back pain during pregnancy There are techniques to relieve back discomfort no matter what stage of pregnancy you're in. You won't be able to prevent it, but you can help to reduce the agony. Use these suggestions to keep your back pain to a minimum during your pregnancy. [*]When you're seated or standing, keep a proper posture in mind. Stand tall and relaxed, with your chest high and shoulders back. [*]Standing for long periods should be avoided. If you spend a lot of time on your feet, try resting one foot on a raised surface. [*]Remember to squat instead of bending at the waist if you need to pick something up. [*]Lifting heavy objects should be avoided. [*]Wear supportive shoes that are practical. [*]For light support, sleep on your side, not your back, with pillows tucked behind your belly and between your knees. [*]Exercises that strengthen and support your abdomen and back are safe to undertake during pregnancy. [*]Consider wearing a supporting garment or belt as your abdomen expands to relieve some of the pressure on your back. [*]Learn more about how a chiropractic adjustment might help relieve back discomfort by looking for local chiropractors who specialise in pregnancy-related care. [*]When seated, try to keep your feet up and make sure your chair provides adequate back support. For extra low back support, use a lumbar pillow. [*]Make an effort to obtain lots of rest. Meditation, prenatal yoga, and extra rest can all be beneficial strategies to control your stress levels if your back discomfort appears to be linked to them. Back pain can be relieved with ice packs, and prenatal massages are also a great way to relax and unwind. Consult your doctor about anti-inflammatories if your back pain is severe. Any medication should only be taken with your doctor's permission.
