Why pregnancy is a real pain in the back

Chiropractic Care For Pregnancy Brings Tremendous ReliefOf all the things people with kids told me about what motherhood would be like, one has held truer than most: your back will never be the same. It starts in pregnancy, as the body releases relaxin, a hormone that loosens the joints and ligaments – and eventually softens and lengthens the cervix – in preparation for childbirth. That almost sounds pleasant, right? It relaxes your muscles to make childbirth easier. Unfortunately, it feels more like you’ve been put on a medieval stretching rack, and some evil hunchback is turning a crank that’s slowly pulling your pelvis apart.

Labor can be difficult on the back as well, especially if the baby is positioned in such a way as to cause what’s called “back labor”, another innocuous term for intense lower back pain, generally thought to be caused by the baby’s head pushing against the lower back.
