Back pains during pregnancy? We have your back.
Women who recently became a part of mother can agree that their full center of attention and devotion becomes their newborn baby. Everything they do or strive for is focused on their baby. This never ending 24-hour job makes it quite hard for mothers to tend to their personal needs.
Backaches are a common problem reported among postnatal women. This is mostly caused by the multitude of physical changes that occur in women during pregnancy and delivery. Moreover, studies have shown that women who have reported back pain problem before the pregnancy and during it are more viable to postnatal backache. Some of the main contributory factors of a constant backache after pregnancy are:
Loosening of muscles and joints during pregnancy:
The hormones released during the time of pregnancy helps in stretching of the abdominal muscles to compensate for the growing uterus. The joints and ligaments in the pregnant women also tend to become loose and fragile due to the multiple hormonal changes occurring in them. This loosening of abdominal muscles puts increased stress on the spinal cord resulting in back pain. The increasing weight, shift of center of gravity and the changing postures all contribute to put strain on the back of pregnant women, which even lasts after the baby is delivered.
Decreased bone mineral density during pregnancy:
Various research studies have proven that loss of bone mineral density (BMD) during pregnancy is a prevailing cause of persistence of back pain symptoms for longer periods of time. The risk factors such as previous history of back pain, the type of occupation and any ill habits such as smoking or drinking were also accountable to the longevity of the back ache in the postpartum period.
Physical stress during delivery:
Most of the women have long lasting arduous labors that take a toll on their overall health. The contractions during labor makes women use the set of muscles very extensively to the level they have not used them before. The after-effects of such intense pains last for quite some time and tend to weaken females resulting in backache among other problems.
Factors during postpartum period:
Many new mothers inadvertently make their back problems worse by not using good posture while breastfeeding, picking up the baby, and other functions of their daily routine. The increased exhaustion and stress can tense up neck and back muscles, making them incompetent to meet the daily needs of a newborn baby.
