Low Back, Leg, and Foot pain in Pregnant women is most often caused by your body's response to the hormones
that are released exclusively during pregnancy. As your body gets ready to make it possible to carry and ultimately deliver
your baby, several powerful changes start to occur in your body.
✅ Your Center of Gravity Changes
As your baby gets bigger your weight shifts forward and your core muscles have to compensate to keep you upright.
✅ Ligaments Start to Loosen in Your Pelvis
Hormones are released which cause the ligaments in your pelvis to loosen to get ready for delivery. As this happens your core muscles also have to compensate for this change.
✅ Your Hips Come out of Position More Often
Due to changes in how you sleep and how you walk (caused by changes in your center of gravity), your hips can more easily lock up. This can cause further pain and discomfort if they stay out of place too long.
✅ Your Sciatic Nerve Becomes Irritated
As things become more crowded and your body is compensating, the nerves that lead to your legs can get slightly "pinched". This leads to pain in your lower back, legs, and feet
✅ Muscles Become Overly Fatigued as they Compensate and help Keep You Upright.
All of the above leads to muscles all over your body having to pick up the slack and do things that they aren't used to doing in order to keep you upright and moving. This process works fine until those muscles become overly fatigued. When this happens, you'll start to feel those muscles sending you warning signs (pain). This is a common result of not taking care of all of the above issues.
