Pregnancy and back pain


During pregnancy, you want to do only what's best for you and your child.

Find care


Spine and leg problems are common during pregnancy. Sometimes these issues start with a disk problem, pinched nerves or tight joints and muscles.

Whatever the cause, we'll work with you to find the right solution, such as:

  • Appropriate exercises or physical movement
  • Minor posture and lifestyle changes

We'll help you stop your pain so you can move around as much as you want.

Our services

During your first appointment with us, our physical therapist will look at how well your body can do ordinary movements and positions. Then we'll create an exercise program suitable for your body's changing needs.

In addition, we'll show you the sources of your pain and how movement may affect how you feel. We'll also find ways to reduce future pain or possible disability (a physical problem that limits how well you can take care of yourself).

We may suggest using equipment to help you be as comfortable as possible during your pregnancy, such as:

  • Lumbar rolls
  • Pillows
  • Belts
  • Electrical stimulators
