There are a number of factors that are correlated to back pain during pregnancy. Around the third trimester the average woman gains approximately 25 to 35 pounds. During this time the baby usually grows to weigh up to seven pounds before its due date. Imagine yourself carrying a bowling ball around your stomach twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, the woman’s body releases a hormone that relaxes the ligaments in the pelvic area and loosens the joints in preparation for the birth process. Other bodily changes such as the shift of a woman’s center of gravity or poor posture tend to accumulate. Overall, the amount of strain put on the back can irritate the sciatic nerve causing unnecessary pain.
After caring for his wife through three pregnancies Dr. Trabulsi understands the apprehensions of a pregnant woman when it comes to receiving certain treatments. Most pregnant women are naturally cautious and protective of their womb. However, he considers not catering to back pain during pregnancy is a risk of its own. It is extremely risky for pregnant women with a history of back pain, as the baby’s further development and growth can worsen their condition due to increase postural stress. His primary suggestion to expecting mothers is to always take care of their selves first. “When the mother is at ease, the baby is also at ease”.
