Pregnancy introduces a whole spectrum of changes to a woman’s body, and despite anticipation for the new baby, it is very common for moms to experience pregnancy pains or discomfort during pregnancy. Headaches during pregnancy, sciatica during pregnancy, and pregnancy back pain are among the many challenges.
During pregnancy, women release a hormone called relaxin that allows muscles and other soft tissues to become more pliable. While this is vital to accommodate the growing fetus, it creates the risk for hypermobile joints. Additionally, as the fetus grows, increased weight creates new demands on the mother’s body, posture, and musculoskeletal function. Stress on the spine, pelvic muscles, and ligaments create fatigue, discomfort, and other painful problems.
