Are you troubled by the problem of back pain in Pregnancy ?

Back pain during pregnancy affects more than 50% women, typically starting from the second trimester. The pain is generally in the lumbar area or in the posterior pelvic region, that is near the tail bone.


  • Additional weight gain – spine has to support the extra weight of baby and developing pregnancy thus putting pressure on lower back
  • Posture changes and excessive standing or sitting
  • Increase of hormone relaxin during pregnancy helps pelvic area ligaments and joints to soften and loosen in preparation for labor. This results in strain and pressure in lower back area
  • Stress
  • Muscle separation – As the uterus grows bigger, two parallel sheets of muscles running from rib cage to pubic bone separate along the center causing backache
