One of the most common points of pain for new (and experienced) moms is in the low back. There are many factors that work together to create pain in the low back, and it can usually be minimized by working with a pelvic floor physiotherapist in conjunction with a fitness professional who can help you to strengthen your core and make sure you’re moving properly and in proper alignment.
Becoming a mom is like being thrown into a sport that you’ve never trained for. There are so many movements that you’ll repeat over and over again, and over time, these movements can cause injury if they are executed improperly. Sometimes it’s not even a matter of improper execution, but just repeating the movement too much without counter movements.
As a new mom, your body has changed in so many ways. You have just performed a miracle. Over the last year your body has created a new life! It’s important that you give your body time and resources to heal, including optimal nutrition, lots of rest, and slowly starting to add movement back into your daily routine over the first 6 weeks postpartum.
