Chiropractor is the only thing that helps me! I do massages as well. Baths are soothing.

i havent been able to go to a chiro, so tylonol before bed, and a ice pack to ease inflamation. plus a body pillow to take pressure off of it

Ok I've been trying heat not much improvement so I will try ice. I wish I could get a professional massage or something but we are on a little light budget since our car is having issues

I had a bad back and neck before pregnancy. Now the pain is unbearable, I kinda just deal with it and do Epsom salt soaks occasionally

Don't eat carbs past 6pm, I've been using that tactic for RLS for years I discovered it works for leg cramps to

Start doing prenatal core stability exercises:

  • abdominal compressions (Baby Hugs)
  • abdominal compressions with pelvic tilt (Baby Lifts)
  • Isometric squats
  • Bridging
  • Quadruped progressions
  • Planks

Avoid all heavy lifting, and twisting of your spine. Always use the "log roll" technique when rising from the floor or out of bed.
