Back Pain and Mobility Problems Are Common During Pregnancy.

 The sacroiliac joints are located between the sacrum and the ilia which make up the pelvis. Among a group of 1,500 pregnant women, researchers found nearly 80% were diagnosed with sacroiliac dysfunction—which can lead to both pain and reduced mobility. The researchers suspect the combination of weight gain and a loosening of ligaments is most likely to blame for the prevalence of sacroiliac dysfunction among expectant mothers. Osteopaths are trained to treat this condition with spinal manipulative therapy.
