Musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy:

Hormonal changes, weight gain, and postural changes due to the growth of your baby all place additional strain on your muscles and joints. This can make you more susceptible to injury or pain including upper and lower back pain, groin or pelvic pain, and numbness and tingling in your arms or legs.

Although these complaints are more common in pregnancy, they are not a normal part of being pregnant. Physical therapy can help.

Treatment may include: exercises to stretch tight muscles, strengthen weak muscles, and improve posture, manual techniques to restore joint alignment, soft tissue mobilization to relieve muscle tension and pain, and education on proper body mechanics to reduce stress on muscles and joints.
