    Default Ongoing back issues - 1 year after birth

    Hi mums

    I need your advice re treatments for my ongoing sore back. I had lower back/pelvis problems in the second have of my pregnancy (my DS is almost 1), my entire labour in my lower back and now just general wear and tear with looking after bubs all day long.

    It seems to be quite localised to the middle of my back but get general pain in lower back as well as shoulders on and off.

    I have been seeing a Physio on a regular basis for awhile but don't feel like I am getting anywhere. I haven't been as diligent as I should be with my exercises - life gets in the way!

    Has anyone had experiences with Osteos, Chiros or other professions for this kind of problem? (I'm in the Eastern suburbs of a Melbourne so any specific recommendations would also be great!)

    Thanks

    Perhaps a good chiro would be of more use to you. I had terrible middle back and neck pain from always looking down whilst BFing and all the rest. Saw a GOOD chiro that was recommended to me and I felt a lot better. It's time for me to go back again too I think. I'm getting bad pain again from lifting DS around all day. I would start there. No recommendations though as I'm in Sydney.

    I went and saw a chiro a few weeks after the birth of my daughter. My back pain was to the point I couldn't lift the pram into the car. It was the best thing I could have done.

    There is a risk with Epis that they can cause on-going back issues. Happened with my SIL too. I'd get it properly checked out.

    If you are given the all clear from any serious issues... I find that kid-wrangling does put a huge strain on your back. Make sure you've got a good chair to feed in, otherwise without good back support you will find that you will hunch more. Other than that I find doing weights and long stretches great for it and when I don't do them it gets worse.

    The reason why I asked is because I had really bad issues too. To the point I was in tears and couldn't move properly. I went and got a massage and they said they see a lot of issues near epi sites.

    Never realised this! I had an epi (csection) and ever since I had my dd 16 months ago I can't sleep on my left side without waking up in agony with back pain. I'm also finding I have lots of back pain during the day - which I never had before!

    Obviously I'm not the only one, I feel for you other ladies in pain also. Stupid question but would a normal Osteo/Chiro have expertise in post birth/epidural back problems? Has anyone seen someone amazing?
