How the Body Changes During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, your body undergoes some dramatic changes that put pressure and stress on the neuromusculoskeletal system. These changes include:
- Increased stress on the sacroiliac joints
- Lumbar lordosis
- Stress on spinal discs and joints
- Curvature of the spine
- Pelvic hypermobility
- Decrease in spinal stabilisation
- Back and hip pain
- Overstretched abdominal muscles
- Irritation of the sciatic nerve
Pregnancy Back Pain
The increasing weight and size of the growing baby puts stress on the spine’s natural curves. As this weight is projected forward, the spine shifts to compensate. This contributes to low back pain, muscle tension and nerve pain.
