What Is The Cause Of Back Pain During Pregnancy?

Hormonal changes, weight gain, changes in the center of gravity, weak core muscles, existing back, buttocks, pelvis, and hip conditions are common causes of back pain during pregnancy. This article will cover these issues and what you can do to resolve your pain fast. Understanding the causes of back pain during pregnancy may help you avoid the typical triggers. Remember that some of these root causes are regular occurrences for an expecting mother. 

Back Pain, Prenatal Care & Postnatal Care 

Pregnancy care is divided into two groups. Pre-natal and post-natal care. Prenatal care & postnatal care are equally crucial for expecting mothers. An excellent prenatal program can ensure a healthier and less painful pregnancy. Prenatal and postnatal at home or from a professional therapist or treatments that incorporate exercise with focused rehabilitation provides a healthy pregnancy.

The two best types of prenatal and postnatal care are:

  1. Prenatal & Postnatal Chiropractic
  2. Prenatal & Postnatal Physiotherapy

Prenatal & Postnatal Chiropractic

Prenatal chiropractic care aims to minimize the stress on your spine by keeping your lower back and pelvises in proper alignment. Proper and correct pelvis (ilium and scrum) alignment is essential to maintaining a healthy and pain-free back during pregnancy. Prenatal and postnatal chiropractic treatment are specialized methods of chiropractic performed best by an experienced chiropractor.

Not all forms of chiropractic are specific enough to meet the needs of a prenatal program. The best method of prenatal chiropractic treatment is one that involves the use of Activator methods and systems. The Gonstead and Diversified techniques of chiropractic should be avoided in pregnant patients.

Chiropractic Specialty Center® offers the best prenatal and postnatal treatment programs in Malaysia. Treating your back by our clinical teams will help reduce your back pain during pregnancy and improve your overall wellness during gestation. Best of all, our prenatal chiropractic and postnatal chiropractic treatment programs are perfectly safe for mothers and babies. There are no pushing, twisting, popping, or other harmful movements.

Prenatal & Postnatal Physiotherapy

Prenatal physiotherapy is about getting you healthier through clinical physiotherapy, posture correction, and customized exercise plans that strengthen the weaknesses present or those that result during pregnancy. Pregnancy causes a change in posture, impacting the spine, hips, knees, legs, ankles, and feet. Mothers with pre-existing weaknesses tend to have more aches and pains during pregnancy. The prenatal physiotherapy management program at Chiropractic Specialty Center® is the most holistic means of identifying and fixing these weaknesses.

Prenatal and postnatal physiotherapy programs that include focused nonforceful methods (no drop tables, twisting, or popping of the spine) of chiropractic are better than other forms of care.

Impact of Hormonal Changes During Pregnancy On The Spine

During pregnancy, you will have increases in certain hormones. The most implicated hormones in back pain and pregnancy are the Relaxin hormone. The Relaxin hormone is common in men and women, but in females, it is abundant during pregnancy; to ease childbirth by loosening the muscles and ligaments surrounding the pelvis. In the coming section of this page, we have elaborated on the impact Relaxin has on your spine and its effects on back pain during pregnancy in our article (blog) section of our website related to back pain.

Can Weight Gain During Pregnancy Cause Back Pain?

Added weight during pregnancy is healthy; in fact, it is encouraged. But, some gain too much during pregnancy. Healthy weight gain for an expecting mother is 1 to 2.5 kilograms in the first trimester and an average of about 500 grams for the remainder of the pregnancy.

Excessive weight gain during pregnancy is a leading factor in the development of back pain. However, it is worth mentioning that the added kilos are not the issue but somewhat complicating or triggering for those with poor posture and weak spinal and core muscles. Weight gain in pregnancy is also a contributing factor as it changes the center of gravity. This causes most mothers-to-be and mothers of newborns to experience tailbone pain (coccydynia). Tailbone pain or pain in the coccyx bone is the most common complaint in expecting and new mothers.

Pregnancy Causes Changes In Your Center Of Gravity

As discussed earlier, weight gain is healthy, and these regular changes impact the center of gravity in expecting mothers. The more you gain, the higher the shift in the center of your body’s gravity. In other words, these changes are gradual over a period. These changes will impact the body’s muscles, ligaments, spinal discs, spinal joints, and even other weight-bearing joints.

Impact Of Weak Core Muscles On Back Pain And Pregnancy

Role of core muscles on the spine illustrated

As your tummy grows, your abdominal muscles get stretched and elongated. While this is normal, it can impact your spine, especially if you had a poor abdominal tone before pregnancy. Pregnancy is not an illness but a condition that requires a healthy body. Also, the changes in your center of gravity place excessive stress on spinal muscles and other core muscles responsible for holding the body upright. So, the key to avoiding back pain during pregnancy is ensuring proper core muscle strength.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain During Pregnancy 

Our clinical team of chiropractors and physiotherapists provides the most holistic back pain treatment for spine-related issues or S/I joint pain in Malaysia. We have treated S/I joint and back pain in pregnant females for over 15 years.

Sacroiliac joint pain is too common in pregnancy and often results from hormonal changes involving the relaxin and progesterone hormones. Sacroiliac joint pain usually occurs in patients with a backbone or hip-related issues and those excessively active during pregnancy. The S/I or sacroiliac joints are helped attach your pelvic bone (ilium) to the spine at the sacrum (tailbone). Another common cause of S/I joint pain during pregnancy is prolonged sitting.

Regardless of what caused your S/i joint pain, we can help. Yama Zafer, D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic), our leading chiropractor, has over 25 years of experience treating back pain in pregnant women; contact us today to set an appointment with him for a detailed consultation.

How to Relieve Back Pain And Pregnancy Pain?

Life is all about the little things. The little things we do can have huge impacts. When it comes to back pain and pregnancy, a minor change in lifestyle or habit can make a difference. So, with that in mind, we have the following suggestions for expecting mothers:

Impact of Physical Exercise On Back Pain And Pregnancy Pains

The dos & don'ts of pregnancy illustrated

An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Physical exercise is essential for a healthy and active life. It is even more important in pregnancy to partake in physical activity to ensure a healthy pregnancy; however, one must not overdo it. Before you engage in an exercise program, you should speak with your gynecologist.

Our recommendation for expecting mothers is to avoid repetitive traumatic exercises such as aerobics and running. The two best back pain exercises for pregnant females are walking in water and kegel exercises. We recommend engaging in these two activities as early as possible in your pregnancy if your gynecologist clears it.

Walking in a pool is the best exercise for back pain and pregnancy. Walking in water provides buoyancy and resistance, which go a long way to helping back pain and pregnancy.

Start slow and progressively build up; you should limit your swimming intensity once you have entered your seventh month of pregnancy. We advise all expecting mothers and mothers with newborns to visit a Chiropractic Specialty Center® for a comprehensive assessment. Chiropractic Specialty Center® is the best chiropractic and physiotherapy center in Malaysia to treat new and expecting mothers.

Proper lifting during back and pregnancy shownWhat Is The Proper Lifting Method To Prevent Back Pain And Pregnancy Pain

We cannot overstate this enough. If you are expecting, you must limit all lifting. The female pelvis is vulnerable, and this vulnerability is even more dramatic during pregnancy, so when it comes to lifting – avoid it. But, if you have no other choice, please ensure that you use proper lifting techniques. In other words, be mindful of your lifting posture. Thus, instead of bending forward at the waist, use your knee and squat down.

Once you have the object in hand, bring it close to your body, and then use your leg muscles to lift it into a standing position. It will be much better to avoid raising any object whenever possible during pregnancy.

Should You Use Back Supports To Sooth Back Pain During Pregnancy?

Increased weight, changes in the center of gravity, and weak muscles are the key factors in back pain during pregnancy. Back support while sitting can help ease stresses that often lead to back pain during pregnancy. Use a pillow or, better yet, purchase back support to decrease the harmful effects of sitting.

How Important Is Sleep During Pregnancy?

You must try your best to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. However, for mothers-to-be, this may be easier said than done. To get eight hours of sleep, plan to sleep nine or more hours if possible. Sleeping early or planning a nine-hour rest may give you seven or eight hours. Make sure the mattress you sleep on has firm support. It can be a pillow top, so long as it gives you the help needed. Suppose you have to buy a new mattress. Please check out our blog page on how to purchase the right mattress.

What Is The Best Sleeping Position For Pregnant Mothers?

The number of hours you sleep is just as significant as the position in which you sleep. Sleeping on your side is the best and most comfortable posture during pregnancy. Most pregnant women prefer to sleep on the left side, as it minimizes stress on the organs. So, find a relaxed sleeping posture and use a pillow between your knees. Using a pillow or a bolster between the thighs and knees will alleviate stress on your legs, thighs, and glutes.

Footwear That Prevents Back Pain

As mentioned earlier, weight gain during pregnancy changes the center of your gravity. It changes all your weight-bearing joints’ position, and your feet play a significant part in these changes.

Back pain during pregnancy is a common ailment that is avoidable, and your footwear will help minimize flare-ups or even back pain during pregnancy.

Neglected Back Discomfort Lead To Herniated Disc (Slipped Disc Or Slip-Disc)

We encourage all expecting and new mothers not to neglect back pain. Back pain that develops during pregnancy can lead to additional issues during pregnancy. Pregnant patients who ignore their back pain may develop chronic disorders such as degenerated discs, bulging discs, and even a herniated disc. A herniated disc (slipped disc) is a common condition diagnosed in pregnant patients and new mothers. Therefore, we urge you to heed the warning and get targeted care during pregnancy to avoid the pitfalls of back pain.

A slipped disc (slipped disc, bulging disc, or herniated disc) results from changes in the center of gravity. Additionally, the weight changes during pregnancy often aggravate existing back issues, leading to a slipped disc.
