My baby is beautiful, but my back hurts!!

Hey moms! Experiencing back pain? It is a very common postpartum complaint, but you shouldn’t have to live with it. Here are a few tips for you to try at home:

-ice or heat

-stand with your weight on both legs

-keep your spine straight and knees bent as you lift your baby

-activate your lower abdominals and pelvic floor muscles when you lift

If you are still experiencing back pain seek out a physical therapist. We are here to help!
