Studies show that nearly half of all expectant mothers will experience low back pain during their pregnancy. This is due to the enormous strain that the baby places on the mother’s pelvis and lumbar spine. Pregnancy changes the mother’s bio-mechanics and center of gravity, especially during the third trimester. The American Chiropractic Association has great tips for reducing the occurance of low back pain during pregnancy. Those tips can be found here.
