Back pain in pregnancy

Backache is very common in pregnancy, but is it something we have to put up with?

In my practice, I often find that women who experience back pain early in pregnancy have that pain worsen later in pregnancy, and that early treatment works wonders.

I find that at least half of all women experience at least some back pain in pregnancy, at some stage. 

Sometimes it is related to posture, or weak muscles, or a pre-existing problem. 

What to do about it?  There is a lot you can do!  Exercise can be helpful, especially swimming and walking.  Massage, physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy can also be helpful - and I often find that implementing these earlier, rather than later, has the best results.

Back pain is not something you have to put up with: there are lots of options to assist.
