KCAL 9 – Preventing Back Pain During Pregnancy

Keeping active during pregnancy is often recommended to stay healthy but back pain can creep in as baby grows. The Spine Pro, Dr. Hooman Melamed, shows how moms can prevent back pain during the first, second and third trimesters. Each trimester can present its own challenges, especially as a mom’s center of gravity changes as baby grows. Additionally, hormonal changes can relax ligaments, tendons and muscles. All this can make mom more prone to injury. Dr. Melamed offers several exercise techniques, designed to help moms during each trimester, and recommends checking out pilates or yoga classes tailored for pregnancy.
