How can I ease back pain during pregnancy?
My back has been hurting since I started my third trimester. Is there anything I can do to ease the pain without taking medication?

Many women complain of aches and pains during pregnancy, especially in their backs and especially as their baby grows.
Take it Easy
I recommend to my patients to take it easy on their backs by being careful when stooping or lifting.
Physical therapy especially for pregnant moms may help you feel better. A physical therapist can show you how to do exercises that can ease back pain.
Methodist Physicians Clinic Women's Center provides physical therapy just for women. Some pain associated with pregnancy may be helped through physical therapy.
