Pregnancy back pain

My wife is 5months pregnant and now she is facing so much pain on her back. She is in a position where she can’t get out of bed or can’t even walk. The scanning report showed that baby is resting on the sciatic nerve. The doctor has advised her to take complete rest. Has anyone else had this pain? One of my friends suggested taking physiotherapy treatment( ) from any registered clinic. But I don’t know if such a treatment is safe during pregnancy. Has physiotherapy helped anyone for the back pain during pregnancy? Please advise.

    Hi France:

    I am really humbled to see such a caring husband and your wife is really lucky. As you mentioned, when the sciatica nerve is compressed the pain will be horrible. I had the same problem but was not pregnant. The radiculopathy, radiation of the pain from back to toe suffered me both mentally and physically for which I took some natural treatments. Since your wife is being pregnant, I may not suggest her any medication or alternative treatments. There are many stretching exercises which ease the sciatic pain. But your wife case is suspicious because she has been on the bed always. Some of the exercises really work out. The simplest remedy is, tell her to lie down opposite to the pain direction, i.e if she has pain on the left, let her lie down on the right side. Do not make her stand and sit for a long time, let her change the positions often. If possible, she may swim for a while. Even after doing all these, still, she feels excruciating pain, better she can contact her Gynec for further remedy. Take care her well, I wish her a healthy delivery without any pain more.

    On behalf of my personal experience, I suggest your wife take calcium tablets along with milk. In my time also, I felt a lot of pain. The pain is a signal of the body that something is not right in the body. In pregnancy, our daily body requirements increase a lot. We experience weakness and many times we vomit also. Daily vomiting also inculcates weakness in our body. All these things create pain in our body because bones start losing a lot of calcium in order to suffice the baby requirement. Taking milk three times a day and following a very healthy dietary regime is very important during pregnancy. Morning and evening walks are also very important for a pregnant lady. In my time, I experienced a severe right side pain and that I consulted with my doctor. She just suggested eating everything nutritious like dry fruits, milk, cheese, broccoli, Kale, Sardines, watercress, and Okra. She also suggested me some supplement powder that has to be added to my milk. After following this type of diet, gradually pain reduced.

    Sleep Support. Sleep can be elusive during pregnancy, especially if your back is hurting, because most women tend to sleep on their sides. ... Or try sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees to reduce the strain on your pelvis and lower back.

    Hi, sorry you’re feeling so sore. I’ve been there and it's awful! I had physio which was very good but still, my pain got worse throughout my pregnancy. I was barely walking in the last few weeks and couldn't even stand long enough to wash a few dishes with the pain! But things I was recommended and really helped me were hot water bottles (i constantly had a hot water bottle at my back) and my physio said alternating between hot and cold can really help bring down swelling on the spine/lower back and help a lot, she said get a cold pack from the freezer and alternate with the cold pack and hot water bottle on your back for 5-10min at a time each then immediately swap, also I used to have 2 or 3 warm baths a day with muscle soaks in them, and try not to sit on the couch (this I found very hard as I loved snuggling up on the couch) but they said it puts your back in the worst position and to either sit on a birthing ball (which I almost lived on and highly recommended) or a hard-backed chair or the floor... And use a rolled up towel rolled into a sausage and put that in your lower back which I found very comfy at night and also when driving. I also word a back brace given to me by the physio I had two diff types one soft one-time tube grip very elasticity and stretchy and another much harder one which had three straps which closed around my stomach and was excellent but they are quite pricey but I’d say well worth it. That’s all I can think of atm but if anything else pops into my mind il let you know.

    Hey there. I am happy to see your concern for your wife. Back pain is normal during pregnancy. Despite that, it seems that she is experiencing more pain than normal. Ask her to take it easy. Rest as much as possible. Avoid lifting an excessive weight. Physiotherapy or water therapy might help relax her muscles and provide relief.
