What Triggers Back Pain in Pregnancy?
It is primarily your baby’s WEIGHT and POSITION within the uterus which challenges the natural, upright, comfort position of your pelvis and triggers your discomfort. Can you feel your pelvis rock forward and downward in response to your baby’s growing weight? This STRESS combined with your loosening muscles and ligaments can disrupt the stable, comfort position of your pelvic joints. Once disrupted, your everyday movements can strain the muscles and ligaments which support your back and pelvis.
A disrupted pelvic position is usually at the root of all these pregnancy-related sypmtoms:
- Low back pain
- Buttock pain
- Hip pain
- Pelvic pain ("Symphysis Pubis Disorder")
- Maternity Sciatica
