Back Pain

I am about to move and so I've been packing boxes. Well now my lower lower back is killing me! It hurts to do anything now, especially laying down on my back. Is it safe to go to a chiropractor? Is there anything I can do besides a hot bath to relieve the pain? I'm 16 weeks pregnant.

  • I get horrible back pain in my lower back from doing ANYTHING, I had it with my first and now with my second. I found that a warm compress works wonders. And I always make my hubby massage it :) Good Luck I know how bad it hurts to even walk with that pain.
