Largely because of the physical and hormonal changes to their bodies, many pregnant women can experience various kinds of back pain.
Here's a look at some of the kinds of pain pregnant women are prone to:
- Coccyx (tailbone) pain
- Groin pain
- Pelvic pain (which usually begins during pregnancy, but typically during the end of the final trimester).
- Pubic pain
- Sacroiliac joint pain (the sacroiliac joint connects the sacrum, or triangular bone at the bottom of the spine, with the pelvis, or iliac bone).
- Upper leg pain
