Pregnancy and Back Pain

It’s not a secret that pregnancy often yields discomfort and the central point of that discomfort is usually your back. For many surrogates (and expectant moms everywhere), finding relief can sometimes feel impossible.

If you are experiencing back pain and have already tried using popular methods such as ice, heat, or massage to relieve symptoms, there are other methods we want to share with you that may help.

1. Strengthen your back muscles from the beginning; even before your transfer. Keeping those muscles strong and lean before the start of your pregnancy, means more strength, which equals more support and less pain.

2. Always keep good posture. Stand up straight and tall with your chest high and shoulders back. Keep your knees slightly bent. As the baby grows, your center of gravity moves forward. This means that you will likely lean backwards to prevent yourself from falling forward. This strains the muscles in the lower back and leads to pain.

3. Choose alternative care. Pre-natal chiropractic care during pregnancy is generally a safe and effective way to not only get relief but to help before, during, and after the birthing process. Acupuncture is also a wonderful option for back pain and even morning sickness.

4. Try yoga and proper stretching.

5. Foam roll your lower back. Foam rolling, pregnant or not, can offer a ton of relief.

6. Wear supportive bra and shoes. Doing so can relieve some of the back discomfort by keeping the spine more neutral and providing a good base of support, respectively. Flip flops do not offer support. Try a supportive shoe such as an athletic shoe or supportive insoles.

*As always, consult with your healthcare provider before beginning any new exercise program during pregnancy and look at your gestational contact to make sure these treatments are allowed.
