Pain during pregnancy, albeit low back pain, sciatica, neckache, aching legs, undue fatigue and headaches are common. Pregnancy pains are varied and can range from palpitations to backache.  Pain relief may come in the form of medication or treatment from an Osteopath who has usually had experience in treating pregnant mums.

Pregnancy back supports can help reduce the stress on the low back by redistributing the weight.  The back supports may be found in a pregnancy magazine, where often there are tips on how to perform safe pregnancy ball exercises, month by month detailed pregnancy stages of development and even lists of baby names.

Poor posture caused by changes in the body as you progress through pregnancy is caused as the body changes shape to accommodate the increasing size and weight of the uterus.  If the mother has an existing back problem she may find it more difficult to accomodate these changes and pain and discomfort will result.

The ligaments soften during pregnancy due to the action of hormones such as "relaxin"  this allows the bones of the pelvis to seperate slightly during the delivery to facilitate the passage of the babies head.  Unfortunately this softening of ligaments affects the whole body making it more vunerable to strain during the pregnancy
