Exercise for the Prevention and Treatment of Low Back, Pelvic Girdle and Lumbopelvic Pain During Pregnancy

The purpose of this study was to review the relationship between prenatal exercise and low back pain (LBP), pelvic girdle pain (PGP) and lumbopelvic pain (LBPP) during pregnancy.

Thirty-two studies were reviewed, and results indicated that compared with not exercising, prenatal exercise decreases the severity of LBP, PGP and/or LBPP during and following pregnancy. However, results also indicted that exercise does not decrease the odds of experiencing these conditions.
