Pregnancy can cause many different aches and pains. Lower back pain is a common issue pregnant women deal with. As your baby grows, your center of gravity shifts forward. This causes more strain on your back which causes the common lower back pain many pregnant women experience.

The good news is, this isn’t something you have to deal with your whole pregnancy! Many women think that they have to endure this type of pain throughout their pregnancy and assume it’ll go away after they give birth. If you visit your physical therapist at RPT, we can help manage the pain you’re feeling during your pregnancy. We can also help you post-pregnancy to help with any possible complications caused by childbirth.

In Utah, you don’t need a referral from a doctor to see your physical therapist at RPT. This makes the process of making your appointment simple, which ultimately speeds up your recovery. Our goal is to help you live with as little pain as possible, while giving you the tools and knowledge to continue living an active and happy life.

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life. Don’t let lower back pain become a serious problem. Our physical therapists are experienced and prepared to help you in every stage of your life, give us a call at 801-572-0690 to schedule your appointment with us.
