Diagnosis and Treatment of Pregnancy Back Pain
Low back pain during pregnancy is a symptom and not a medical disorder. Your medical history and a physical examination provide the physician with enough information to diagnose this condition. In some cases, when the doctor is concerned about nerve function, imaging tests, such as an MRI, may be recommended.

Reasons of Pregnancy Back Pain
There are several causes of back pain during pregnancy. They all increase back strain and result in impaction of nerve roots. One of the main causes of increased back strain during pregnancy is weight gain. During a normal pregnancy, women gain from 25 to 35 pounds. The center of gravity shifts during pregnancy. This can cause changes in posture and pain in the lower back as a result.

Symptoms of Pregnancy Back Pain
Back pain during pregnancy in most cases occurs in the center of the lumbar region of the spine. But in some cases, it may be located lower and on the sides. The location of pain depends on which nerve root is affected.
 
Back pain during pregnancy may be relieved by rest, and is usually made worse by movement. Very often nerve root compression occurs due to prolonged sitting.
