Back pain is a common complaint in pregnancy, affecting approximately two-thirds of pregnant women [Pennick and Lidle, 2013]. This can lead to increased disability, affecting daily activities and cause absence from work. Evidence-based recommendations can be made for the use of exercise as an effective conservative treatment for the relief of back pain in pregnancy [Benten et al, 2014]. This poster explores the background to back pain in pregnancy and the advice women should be offered in relation to exercise to help normalise their pregnancy experience and enhance wellbeing.
