Studies show 50-90% of pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy. Risk factors for pregnancy back pain include advanced maternal age, previous history of back pain and the number of prior pregnancies. Despite common belief, there is no relationship between back pain and the size of the baby or weight gained during pregnancy. An reasonable exercise program before pregnancy can reduce the risk of back pain during pregnancy.

The reasons for maternity related back pain are often unclear, however, hormones that relax ligaments can cause a change in biomechanics, displacing the center of gravity forward which produces anterior pelvic tilt and increased back curvature. This may lead to irritation and inflammation of the lumbar spine facet joints, muscle strain, sacroiliac joint symptoms, as well as disc problems

A maternity back support may help some women. I have treated women throughout their pregnancy and achieved good results with gentle, biomechanically oriented techniques and do recommend a well made support.

According to a 1994 study in the journal Spine, it was shown that reduction of pregnancy related pain by a support belt was experienced by 82% of the women with posterior pelvic pain.

Around 30 to 45% of women continue to have back pain after their pregnancy. Risk factors include more severe pain during pregnancy and failure to lose weight gained during pregnancy. Additionally, the way a mother carries her baby is also a factor – see proper lifting techniques. For additional comfort when sitting, reclining or sleeping, try our best maternity body pillow.

Maternity Belt & Decreasing Risk Of Falls

There are additional benefits, according to a 2015 review in The Journal of Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine, physiological, anatomical, and hormonal changes during pregnancy cause weight gain, decreased neuromuscular control, as well as low abdominal muscle strength, along with an increase in spinal curves and laxity of the ligaments. These changes shift the center of gravity of the entire body, which alters postural balance, increasing the risk of injury from falls. Falls during pregnancy have enormous complications to both mother and child. Recommended preventative strategies to reduce risk of falls and increase postural stability include exercise and the use of a maternity belt.
