BACKACHE DURING PREGNANCY

Causes
During pregnancy backaches are the most common problem faced almost by 95 % of pregnant women. Backaches cause because during pregnancy ligaments become softer and stretch to prepare you for labour. This normally puts a strain on the joints of your lower back and pelvis, which can cause backache. As the baby grows, the hollow in your lower back may increase and this may also cause backache.

Remedies

  • Avoid lifting heavy articles.
  • If you do have to carry something heavy, hold it close to your body.
  • While picking up something from the floor, bend your knees and keep your back straight.
  • Try to work on a surface high enough to avoid bending.
  • Wear flat shoes, as these will balance your weight evenly.
  • Balance the weight between two baskets if you are carrying shopping.
  • Always sit with your back straight and well supported.
  • Use firm mattress on your bed for preventing backaches.
  • You can also go for massages, which are quite relieving.

If however your backache is too severe then ask your doctor to refer you to an obstetric physiotherapist. He/she will help you with your backache and suggest some useful exercises.
