Abstract

Low back pain is a common condition seen in pregnancy. The treatment of low back pain in pregnant patients is essentially different from the treatment of the non-pregnant patient. These differences arise when it comes to understanding the reasons why pregnant patients get back pain and the differential diagnostics relating to obstetrics. The techniques are different as the patient cannot be treated prone, and manual techniques are better than mechanical ones because the palpatory response to the changing tissues is very important in this group of patients.
