Over 50% of all women experience back pain for the first time during pregnancy. The reason is changes in body posture. When the stomach and breasts grow, posture is compensated with swaying in lumbar and curvature of the chest and back. Increased lumbar swaying allows load and weight is moved backwards on the vertebrae and thus incorrect weight distribution area. This allows the joint surface and its surrounding structures irritated and creating pain locally in the back. Pain can sometimes refer into the legs. These pains are otherwise often confused with PGP.
