See a DO: Giving birth can cause the pelvic bones & sacrum (low part of your back) to be misaligned causing low back pain. A do is a medical doctor who can treat the misalignment with simple, non-invasive procedures by using your muscles to move your pelvis back in place (kinda of like a chiropractor). This type of treat is called omt, osteopathic manipulative therapy.

academyofosteopathy.org or osteopathic.org, the web site for the American Osteopathic Association, both have doctor finder functions to help you find a provider near you to provide those services.

OMT, technically is osteopathic manipulative TREATMENT, since it is provided by a physician, not a therapist.
