When the bouncing bundle of joy arrives home for the first time, the last thing that new mothers are thinking is back pain. Often times the joy of being included in the world of natal care overbears listless concepts like back injury. But, of course, every mother has her “wall,” and with each “wall” comes tremendous physical grievance that most likely could have been avoided.
In The News
Flatback syndrome is a condition related to poor spinal alignment, which leads to symptoms such as back pain, bad posture with hips and knees flexed while standing and a tendency to stoop forward at the end of the day with increasing pain and fatigue in the back and legs. This syndrome is mostly related to previous scoliosis surgery and particularly the placement of Harrington rods extending to the lumbar spine.
How Do We Prevent Back Pain?
Exercise, by walking, swimming, jogging, biking, or even gardening, at least 30 minutes each day. Maintain a good posture when walking, sitting, and even when sleeping. Don’t slouch – sit in a balanced and neutral position to avoid straining your spine.
