Back pain after preg: Lumbar pain after pregnancy is common. As many as 80% will have pain, but only about 20% have persistent symptoms. Why? Likely due to ligament laxity which assists the pelvis to expand for birth. The lordotic posture of carrying a tummy full of baby can also aggravate. Pt often helps, but an eval by a doc is a good idea if pain persists.
