A. Low back pain is a common side effect of pregnancy. In addition to the added load on the spine due to carrying excess weight in the abdominal area, hormonal changes that are a normal part of being pregnant can loosen joints and ligaments that support the pelvis and spine.

Back muscles can become sore as a result of compensating for these changes. Pain can also radiate into the buttocks, hip, groin, or legs. A physical therapist can evaluate your specific needs and provide valuable treatment and advice to relieve pain and improve activity level, sleep, and overall fitness during pregnancy. If you are pregnant and experiencing back pain, ask your physician for a referral to physical therapy.
