According to Grace Walker, physical and occupational therapist, pregnancy and lower back pain often go hand in hand. Due to the increase in pregnancies in women over the age of 35, it has become more difficult for women to stay physically active in their day to day lives. This decreased activity combined with a sedentary lifestyle, as well as many other factors, often make pregnancy a guarantee of back pain.

Success Story: “I have had back spasms due to pregnancy. The relief I have received has been fantastic. The staff at Walker Physical Therapy is such a fantastic team! I feel that they have really listened to my problem, have been very thorough in evaluating the source of the problem, and came up with an effective remedy. I have experienced great relief. The team members have been very courteous and attentive. This is my third experience with physical therapy and by far Walker Physical Therapy has been the best! I would highly recommend this practice to anyone I come across needing physical therapy.”
