Research shows that more than two of every three pregnant women complain of back pain at some point. As the uterus enlarges, it moves the body’s center of gravity forward, causing an increase in the normal curve of the spine. This puts stress on the joints and ligaments of the lower back. In addition, hormones produced during pregnancy cause the pelvic ligaments to loosen and the joints to open. This, too, can cause pain. Back pain can be particularly severe if a woman gains more than the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy.
